The date of the last message needs more space in the forum list

  • Unfortunately, there is no easy so solution for this, Spanish appears to be a bit too verbose here. The “long” variant generated by the ICU library is a lot longer than in other languages including but not limited to German and English. We cannot use the “short” variant because the result is less of a fit in other languages.

    Increasing the column width is not an option either at this time because of the layout constraints that still exist there. We will take this into consideration for our planned overhaul of the thread list but for now there will be no change, I’m sorry.

  • Hi Alexander Ebert,

    I think is more interesting in the future can to select the short o the long form from the API, rather than changing the column width. Yes, Spanish can be very verbose. When space is limited, we usually opt for forms such as 3 Oct. 2023, 15:16 or 03/10/2023, 15:16.

  • I don’t know how we will solve this eventually because the short form is not necessarily the right choice in all places. We also cannot make the decision to use one variant or the other depending on the position and language – that would easily be a combinatorial explosion.

    Given that we are now aware of the significant space requirements for dates in languages like Spanish we can address these by providing enough space in future layouts.

  • In the calendar, for example, the short option is the best option.

    Being able to decide via the language file how each date should be handled does not seem a bad way. I don't know if this is possible with API/Libraries (in the future).
