XF 1.3 Node List - width on resize

I'm trying to achieve a narrow forum page on resize (below 600px). The difficulty is determining what pushes nodeLastPost down below nodeTitle. I've tried a reduced length of text for nodeTitle and nodeDescription. While this leaves more obvious space, nodeLastPost wraps before the elements get close to each other.

Current settings:
page width controller max-width 1200px
page width controller min-width 568px (for testing)
responsive design enabled with stock settings
(wide 800/medium 610/narrow 480/non-resp min 976)

The only way I could change the wrapping point was to change the "medium 610" to a lower value. Is there any other way to do this? The photos show about 100px that could come out.

If you look at: node_list.css

Towards the bottom there's a media query, you can edit the: @maxResponsiveMediumWidth to a px value. or even change it to: @maxResponsiveWideWidth this will adjust when that last post take the mobile effects(assuming this is what you want it to do)

Thanks for the reply. I can tweak the point where it takes the mobile effects. By changing the specific responsive medium width to 500px (in node_list.css), I can get the 100px measurement down to about 30px.

I realize now that I need the page width controller to limit the minimum page width so no wrapping occurs below a certain point. I believe pageWidth should be able to override the mobile effects, but I can't figure how to make it work.

Let's say I set mobile effects to occur at 520px with the page width controller is set to a min-width of 500px. Mobile should happen at 520, then the page width should lock at 500 so no wrapping takes place. I'm looking for a way to force a minimum page width with responsive enabled. Isn't this how pageWidth is supposted to work?

Testing shows that pageWidth set to min-width 500px has no effect. I am expecting "Motorcycle related discussion" to disappear via mobile at 520, then the page width to lock at 500 so node_last_post cannot wrap.

Still testing this; now I wonder if there is a bug. When I disable Responsive Design and set the Non-Responsive Minimum Width to 500px, the minimum page width still stops at the default 976px. It seems like the non-resp min width setting is completely ignored. I do have the Page Width Controller also set to 500px, although this has no effect either. I am expecting the non-resp min width setting to have more priority than the Page Width Controller setting.

Can someone please explain how the page width hierachy is supposted to work?
