PM message wrap problem

Post by statm » Wed Jul 25, 2007 2:14 am

This screenshot is of viewing a pm where the entire UCP is apparently not wrapping.

This is apparently a bug in subsilver.. But, how can I fix it?

It's not a bug. Don't post long unbroken strings of text.

Ok........

How can I make it not wrap the whole page, anyway?

this has been a prob for many years and is not limited to phpbb. phpbb 2.* had a few mods to fix this
watch for an updated "no_thread_stretch" mod

Thanks for letting me know Helter..

If this has been around for years, then why dont they just fix it? It seems like more of a problem then just saying "dont do anything that would cause that to happen" and you will be fine...

I'm sure that if they fixed it. Not many would complain. OR, make it so you can control it within the template without a mod. What type mod were you refering to?

There's nothing to fix. Long unbroken strings are going to stretch most styles. Unless overflow is set to hidden, in which case you won't be able to view it (like happens with large inline images here).

Ohh.. ok.

Well, someone should write a script that gives wordwrap to phpbb and the dev team should add it. So its not just a mod. :D

Thanks extra..
