Not a huge fan of all the line-wrapping


Recommended Posts

I don't entirely remember, but I'm pretty sure it has something to do with having "word-wrap: break-word" (or maybe "overflow-wrap: break-word", which is more recent) in the CSS. Might want to experiment with that. Perhaps switch between the two variations to see what happens.

And maybe try experimenting with "display: inline/inline-block/block/etc" for the container?

Oh man, I notice that stuff on my phone all the time, not so much on a computer. It drives me nuts, especially when it starts doing it to a post I'm trying to write on my phone and it starts dashing the heck out of it like that. :lol: You using an iPhone? I assumed it was either specifically a phone thing or the forum software for phones.

I just checked on my laptop and it does not do that.. It wraps the text, but it doesn't do it with dashes, it just does it normally..  Even if I make the window smaller it just adjusts the frames in a smart way. I'm using Chrome / Win 8.1... Otherwise no idea why it's doing that, but it seems Ok for me with laptop resolution here.

Well, it's doing it for me on Firefox 42.0, and I have some pretty large resolution... (1920 x 1080) So it's not a screen size or resolution issue. I'm pretty sure it involves the word-wrap (or word-break, or overflow-wrap) or display commands in the CSS, and maybe the width specs on the container, though I'm not entirely sure how. It's a bit hard to tell, because I haven't been able to replicate this.
