A problem with word-wrapping of blog titles exists, where long titles will wrap onto the same line, or only about a half-line lower.

The below screenshot is from Firefox 5 on Windows XP Pro x86. The problem appears identical on the following systems:

  • Firefox 5, Windows XP Pro x86
  • Firefox 5, Windows 7 Ultimate x64
  • IE 7, Windows XP Pro x86
  • Firefox 4, Windows 7 x64

The next screenshot is from Chromium on Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit. (Thanks to @ThomasPornin) Also applies to:

  • Chromium, Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit
  • Chrome, Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit
  • Chrome, Windows XP x86
  • Chrome, Windows 7 x64
  • IE 9, Windows 7 x64

I checked the Blog Overflow homepage, to see if there were other sites that might have this problem. But it seems ours is the only one with a post title that long, in recent history.


Updated the css, looks much better now.

And if you still see it messed up, blame caching and try again later. (:

  • No problems with caching - works fine on FF5, XP. Thanks!
