    s it possible to add a line break in a post title?

    I see where you can add it to the body of the post by adding the code through the text editor, but it doesn’t appear to work in the post title.

    On my post “Scouting trip: Potawatomi Trail run,” I would like the line to break after “trip:”

    The blog is https://inthedeed.wordpress.com/

    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is inthedeed.wordpress.com.

    Hi there,

    Unfortunately, this is not currently possible. Titles are designed to be entered as a single line.

    If you want to suggest this as something that could make a future version of WordPress.com even better, you could add the idea to our Ideas forum at https://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/ideas

    Best!

    Thanks for the update.

    The titles can run more than one line; the user just can’t control where the breaks happen, which is unfortunate.

    That’s right. The titles will break automatically when they reach the edge of the prescribed width for your site’s post area but there is no way to force them to break earlier.

    Being able to control line breaks and other simple html elements in your post titles could be a great enhancement for a future version of WordPress.com. You can share this and any other ideas for how to make WordPress.com better with the whole community at https://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/ideas.

    Best!
