[resolved] wordwrapping not working? (5 posts)

    Hi there, ive been using wordpress for some days now. build my own plugin and theme and now i bounced upon something weird.

    WordPress has no wordwrap? My girlfriend posted a msg tonight with a piece of binary, no spaces and the whole theme was weird. To mee it seems logic that this superblog has some form of wordwrap but i didnt find any option. Not even a plugin... So i figured it must be build in then. But it wont work in either IE and FF. IE just moves down the sidebar widening the article and FF keeps the layout but the text goes on and on tru the sidebar and farther... But no serious deforming is caused. prolly cuz of the better css support.

    Anyway. is this easy to fix, and how? Is there a plugin? and if so where do i find it :)

    Thanks alot!

    Perhaps you need to deactivate the Markdown plugin?

    Edit: Nevermind, I didn't register the "no spaces"

    This is a well known difficulty in web design. Browsers will do word wrap but won't break a word when it is too long. IE expands the box (which in your case push the sidebar below) while Firefox and other browsers following web standards will simply let the text overflow without changing the layout.

    The best answer I can give you is that that you should break your "binary text" with spaces.

    Read this if you're interested in the technical details.

    Thanks for your input guys!!
