Firefox not wrapping the trackback (6 posts)

    IE works fine, the blog is validated, but the trackback url does not wrap in firefox. Any ideas?

    It looks like you have older version 1.x.x WordPress code, such as that in wp-comments.php:
    <?php _e("The <acronym title="Uniform Resource Identifier">URI</acronym> to TrackBack this entry is:"); ?> <em><?php trackback_url() ?>

    From 1.5.x, roughly equivalent comment.php code would read:
    <a href="<?php trackback_url() ?>" rel="trackback"><?php _e('TrackBack <abbr title="Uniform Resource Identifier">URI</abbr>'); ?></a>

    I have to disagree with you there, since my install of WP is the latest (released). My code looks like the example you posted, but my trackback doesn't wrap either. Maybe the CSS?

    Thanks for any input.

    firefox doesnt wrap long text like ie .. put it in a div like you would a block of code

    div.trackback {
    margin-left:6px; padding:3px 5px;
    border:1px solid #000066;
    font-family:'Courier New',Courier,monospace;
    width:365px; height:100px;
    overflow:auto; white-space:nowrap;

    the above will keep it from extending out of the parent div, brian, and make a nice little box like so:

    Im a little surprised that author of that theme didnt think of that, oh well. Its those little details that usually get missed.

    you could even style that box so that the colors blend in with the parent div.

    I appreciate the help, but I just don't like that desiegn. I just want plain text. I guess it is firefox's problem.

    The first one I don't like at all. It is useless as it does not take you anyplace that displays the trackback. I have gotten all the WP blogs I go one to get rid of that in favor of plain text that can be copied and pasted. If you click that trackback uri you just end up back at comments, which confuses people and then you won't get any trackbacks.

    I guess firefox users are out of luck.
