Fixed Popup profile breakable!

    I'm in the mood for breaking stuff tonight... I've noticed that if your status message is xxx characters long, text will break out of the popup profile window.

    I understand that this may not be a problem here because of the limited amount of characters you're able to use, but assuming an admin wants to let their members use large amounts of characters for their status messages, then it will destroy the popup profile window.

    Trivial bug, but a bug nonetheless.

    As statuses are limited in length, this isn't an issue.

    What's the limit a webmaster/admin could allow?

    Im pretty sure if you edit the webpage with firebug anything is breakable :p

    Okie dokie, even when not using firebug, I'm still able to break it.

    There's not a lot of point using Firebug for that, because you're not using the server-side processing.

    The two most recent images weren't done using firebug.

    how do you break it without using FireBug, when the characters are limited to 140 ?

    It is, he was using FireBug to do it through the browser. The second set he took doesn't, and it looks like if you put no space between your words, you can get a solid line that runs off the Member Card.

    that's due to smilies no longer auto spacing to force a wrap. Since smilies aren't even rendered in the status message, might aswell just wrap them there

    It's still not a bug, it's a bug that the user makes smilies without spaces.

    if browser = modern, word-wrap .. tada.

    afaik, word-wrap doesn't wrap mid-word, and smilies have been set to not get auto-spaced, which is annoying.

    Mike/Kier: If you can detect if you're in a smiley or not, could you not just wait until after the smiley and then add the space instead of just not adding spaces?

    word-wrap: normal; /* breaks words normally (top) */
    word-wrap: break-word; /* breaks in block/box to new line to wrap accordingly (bottom) */


    Works in IE/Safari/FF, as far as I know.

    ah, there is a break-word setting.. why is that not being used?

    Fixed now anyway. (And yes, we're using break-word, but it's being used virtually everywhere.)
