Description

The LQT signature length is shorter than the MW signature length. This causes problems with lengthier signatures such as my own.

https://test2.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Preferences > Signature > New signature:
allows entering 255 characters, so I added 255 characters.
Then I went to https://test2.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Xpd and replied to a thread. The full 255 characters were shown as the signature, plus the " (Talk)" string appended.

Hence cannot reproduce.

Mark: Do you still see this issue?

<bawolff> The sig length in mediawiki is configurable. Presumably mark meant the default length

Hmm, assuming that test2 uses default settings for this, I wonder if the report refers to a configuration which might have the LQT value be hardcoded and ignore the MW value completely then?

I've updated the test2 wiki with my tests. Still seeing problems.

LiquidThreads has been replaced by StructuredDiscussions on all Wikimedia production wikis (except one, which will be done soon). It is no longer under active development or maintenance, so I'm re-classifying all open LQT tasks as "Lowest" priority.
