[resolved] Disable CSS hyphenation? (2 posts)

    CSS hyphens looks horrible on web browsers. Is there a chance this theme can make using hyphens an option in the admin controls?

    Right now, articles look ugly with a large number of words hyphenated. There are many other support forums with same problem - since WordPress 2012 theme also turns on hyphens. For example this message also mentions a Catch Theme!

    In any case, if this can't be easily configured in the admin, here's the CSS code for anyone using Custom CSS or a child theme:

    /* CSS hyphennation makes pages hard to read (even with correct lang
     * attribute en-US), the display gets filled with too many hyphens.
     * Turn off hyphenation - only allow line breaks within words if a manual
     * dash is present in text.
    .site-content article {
      -webkit-hyphens: manual;
      -moz-hyphens: manual;
      hyphens: manual;
