Long titles don´t overflow into the post area if H1 has a correct and coherent value. And it hasn´t. It forces 46 px. With that number words longer than 8-9 charaters wil be broken in the title like this:
on is a state
in the Pacific
The best and only solution is to reduce H1 fonts to 36px, so the most words can be allowed in the title ,even 40px will do the trick. Now more than 40% can´t.
I can´t believe that benefits any single person that uses that theme. Of course, that is the reason because that theme is the 182nd most popular theme. Yeah, Not popular at all and now i know why but too late.
Check the Awesome blog using The Columnist in the official page of the theme and click in every single post. The titles... most are broken.
I feel sorry, really sorry for my readers, because i failed them and that is sad . They didn´t deserve that. But i suppose i was the problem because i didn´t full check that a very important part for a blog like the post titles (SEO, catch attention to click on it, and so on..) is really broken for every, and i say every one of us who use that theme.
Yesterday i was speaking with a reader who is one of the best fans of my blog, the first thing he told me it was: What happened with the titles?.
Do you know what a dedicated blogger who really loves to blog with passion feels hearing things like that?. I have been stressed since that moment :)
Of course, it is your deccision and i can´t do anything about it. wordpress has given me the chance to blog and i am very grateful but at the same time and i would have never thought i would feel something like this.
I am not a child and i suppose wich is the real reason to mantain broken that theme. And really , i mean really, i thought wordpress was better than that. And i think with time you will reconsider, it will be too late for me. And if you don´t, every person should know what happens with that theme to not fail their readers like i did.
I don´t want to sound rude, and if i did i am sorry. Thank you for your time.
