      Description

      One of my users posted one long word that went on for about 140 characters separated by hyphens ( - ).

      I noticed that on my work PC (1024 x 768), that when the text got to the posters mini-profile, it went behind this and was hidden.

      I have included a screen shot to help clarify the problem.

      The full text should have been:

      "Mr See-my-fiance-a-few-days-a-month-living-with-parents-probably-soon-gonna-have-no-friends-within-40
      -miles-and-spend-most-of-free-time-studying Griffin"

      But it gets hidden after the word 'spend', and this occurred on post Preview as well.

          That's intended as much as I know (-> users can't mess up the page with long words or whatever)

          In subsilver2 long words stretch the entire post area (only the concerned post, not the other posts) Isn't it possible to do this in proSilver ? (There is a word-wrap:break-word property too, but it doesn't work at all in FireFox, only in some versions of IE and Safari...)

          dark/rain:
          This is surely not the intended behaviour, as it results in a post not being fully displayed even though in this case the post was entirely legitimate and accidental.

          The user wasn't trying to break the layout, and so for his message to be clipped is unacceptable.

          I've just tried testing a huge image though and you are correct that it cuts that off as well. I thought Olympus was not fixed width, but could adapt the individual post to display something large?

          When I attach a huge image it give me the option of clicking and expanding the image, so why does it not do this for [img] tags?

          Yes to clarify, I am using Firefox 2.0.0.4

          confim this is more of a problem with images, expecially when on my forum we have people posting screenshots and the right hand side of the image is chopped off. could it not just be put in an overflow layer?

          Long sentences separated by hyphens ( - ) aren't problem in prosilver, ( at least in SVN )

          Mr See-my-fiance-a-few-days-a-month-living-with-parents-probably-soon-gonna-have-no-friends-within-40-miles-and-spend-most-of-free-time-studying Griffin.

          Totally different should be :
          Mr See_my_fiance_a_few_days_a_month_living_with_parents_probably_soon_gonna_have_no_friends_within_40_miles_and_spend_most_of_free_time_studying Griffin.

          Part of the sentence is hiding behind user profile block.

          Probably the best option is use overflow-y: auto; instead overflow: hidden; in the css .profile class

          But I'm not sure if this behaviour is what we want

          I took a look at the overflow-y solution leviatan21 posted.
          It adds a vertical scrollbar to the post, which looks quite ugly.

          As the problem is fixed in most common browsers (Firefox5, Safari 5.0.5, Opera 11.50, IE8 and IE9) for hyphens, I'd say you need to will to break it, and therefore should not succeed. If you really need to post a such long word, I'd suggest to post it within [code]-tags which has the scrollbar anyway.

          So I'm closing the ticket as will not fix.

          This was fixed by the responsive design changes with CSS3 functionality.
