    In my site http://www.futuregringo.com I am using the plug “Get Recent Comments” in my sidebar.

    Due to the length of the post titles it’s referencing it is pushing my sidebar to the bottom in Firefox and Safari. I’m trying to figure out the code to truncate it within the plug-in to fix it, and keep my line length within my sidebar confines.

    I’ve been attempting to use the <br clear=”all”> tag, but it just splits it up more.

    Any ideas appreciated – many thanks…

    I just looked at your blog I do not see your sidebar on the bottom. I am using firefox 2.0, if you use older versions of firefox (1.x) it will look like crud…

    sidebar at the bottom, and I am NOT using an old version of firefox — 2.0.0.4 to be exact.

    the quick fix is to decrease/remove the padding, like so:

    #sidebar {
    	width:90;
    	float:right;
    	padding:8px 0px 10px 0px;
    	margin:0;

    that fixed it for me.

    Hi – yes that does fix the one comment, but it I have a really long post title I still don’t have a way of truncating it

    for example this test post
    http://www.futuregringo.com/index.php/2000/07/07/test-of-a-really-long-post-title-to-check-the-sidebar-status/#comment-1024

    still shoves the comments down. So as long as I don’t post anything longer than about 15 characters I’m ok – but I’d love a way to abbreviate the title in that plug in
