XF 1.2 Usernames cut off in Thread Avatar Block

    I am having an issue where the username that displays in the little avatar block to the left of a thread post/reply gets cut off because it stretches beyond the block itself. I assume all I need to do is find the relevant place in my styles settings and tell it to wrap just the text after a certain pixel count.

    This is what the issue looks like:

    The user's name is WanderingSketchPad. As you can see, a portion of it is cut off before wrapping properly.


    EDIT: I'm pretty sure the issue has to be resolved in my group styling. This is the relevant group styling:

    I think (emphasis on think) that the change needs to be made somewhere here:

    ACP>STYLES > {Style} > STYLE PROPERTIES > MESSAGE LAYOUT

    ... but I'm neither sure if that's the correct place to make adjustments, nor do I know what to actually put there. I would really appreciate help for this! :)

    Go one up: User Info Container. Increase its width.

    That's really smart. I'll try that. I also had a thought that maybe it had to do with my user group styling.

    Okay I looked into it, and I wouldn't want to increase the width to the size I would need to accomodate the long username. I'd rather fix the issue of how far the text is allowed to go before wrapping.
