Tweet text not wrapping (6 posts)

    Tweet text is not wrapping within the widget. It goes off to the right and cannot be seen. How can we fix this?

    http://www.ridewithjoe.com look on the right side.

    Hi ridewithjoe,

    That is caused by a CSS rule from the Twitter script itself:
    http://widgets.twimg.com/j/2/widget.css

    Specifically, this:

    .twtr-widget h3,
    .twtr-widget h4,.twtr-widget p {
        margin:0!important;
        padding:0!important;
        line-height:1.2!important;
        width:auto!important;
    }

    The width:auto!important; is causing the problem. I'm not sure why (I can't recreate it on my test site), but I suspect it has something to do with your Theme's CSS.

    Try defining max-width, e.g.:

    .twtr-widget h3,
    .twtr-widget h4,.twtr-widget p {
        max-width:185px;
    }

    Chip,

    Thanks for the tip. I will see if I can figure out how to change this. I will let you know.

    If you want to try and recreate this on your test site, you can find the theme here:

    Just FYI, Joe, you got that Theme from a spammy source that has added a spammy footer link.

    You can find the original referenced in your Theme's readme file:

    Your suggestion worked fine.

    I added style tags just before the call for the javascript in your widget and it altered the sidebar perfectly (once I padded the container properly to position it.)

    This isn't the best theme in the world but I'm not a coder either so it was a good start for me.

    Thanks again. This has been bugging me for over a year.

    Chip,

    Yeah I found those spammy pieces in the footer some time ago and took them out. It was interesting, they uuencoded theme or something. I never saw anything like that before. I think it's clean now. I don't mind giving credit but the shadyness of the code concerned me.
