Limit the characters that display on the_title

Ever wanted to display the title of a post somewhere but limit the amount of characters that are shown? For instance, this post has a very long title, and if I were to use <?php echo the_title() ?> it would show as follows: Limit the characters that display on the_title.

That may not fit well on one line in lets say a widget or small width div. So here is a neat trick you can use:

<?php $title = the_title('','',FALSE); echo substr($title, 0, 11); ?>

Pretty simple huh, just note the bold numbers, in this case 11 character would output like this: Limit the c.

Thanks to Tattershall Way for this snippet.

    Cheers. Very useful. 🙂

    I don’t suppose could help me with adding a little extra to this. I want to put “…” at the end if the amount of chars in the title exceeds the cut off point.
