A few more site theme “niggles” fixed…

As I have mentioned before, I am using a slightly modified version of a theme from Ensellitis here.

As per my usual habit, I am always tinkering. There were a couple of posts earlier this week that ‘broke’ the formatting- specifically, very long unbroken strings of text (URLs) that escaped their DIVs and went running across the page. I liberally applied the “overflow:hidden” property to several divs (notably navAlpha and comtxt) to bring things back under control.

I mention this on the off chance that someone encounters the same problem and wants to fix it and, like myself, is still rather new to the whole CSS thing.

  • Give this a try

    word-wrap: break-word;

    I haven’t used it in a very long time, I know it works in IE not sure about anything else, though. But if it works it would be better then using overflow since it clips the text, this will just break it. This property only works if the element has a visual rendering, is an inline element with explicit height/width, is absolutely positioned and/or is a block element.

  • I’ll take a look at that, Chris- Thanks!
