Here is the truncate code I'm using:
<%= truncate(teammember.user.full_name, :length => 8)%>
teammember.user.full_name returns names like:
- Steve Jobs
- Larry Oracle
- James Bond
- Dhandar Kentavolv
Butall the truncate is doing is returning:
- Steve Jobs...
- Larry Oracle...
- James Bond...
- Dhandar Kentavolv...
The user.full_name is not a field in the DB but a helper in the user
model, which might be the issue.?
if !fname.nil? && !fname.empty?
[fname, lname].join(" ")
['User', id].join(" ")
I then tried:
<%= truncate("Once upon a time in a world far far away", :length =>
And that returns: Once... and not O...
Any ideas? thanks!
