Words breaking into letters at each line break in comments
Unless I’m overlooking it, I do not see it here:
I do see it on these two pages, but the words are hyphenated, not just broken:
This getting weird. In IE9 and Opera10, I see no hyphenated or broken words on this page like I do in SeaMonkey:
All words are properly justified/wordwrapped in both, although slightly differently in each.
Hi guys, I’m running Windows XP. Comments were fine for most of the day Wednesday, and then just like that, it changed – with nothing having changed on my end.
Sheila Hurst and grossoutwine changed their themes to make the problem go away. Both were using Twenty Eleven. I think the problems started happening for them at the same time, too.
Here are other Twenty Eleven Themes where it’s happening:
OK, so my next question would be, has anyone seen it on any site using a different theme?
I haven’t. As I’ve gone through my follow list the past couple of days, I only see it on Twenty Eleven.
I do not see it in Opera, but I do see it in SeaMonkey and IE, although different words are affected in each.
Thanks for all the screenshots and details!
I still can’t reproduce the issue myself, but I think we have enough specifics to start at least forming a hypothesis.
I’m having the same issue as described by many people.
I’m having the same problem in Firefox with twenty eleven (words breaking at the end of lines in the comments sections only.)
The problem doesn’t appear in Google Chrome, Version 21.0.1180.89
I’m running the following:
Mac OSX 10.7.5
I’ve switched themes (while in Firefox) and don’t see a problem, so the line break issue appears to be isolated to the twenty eleven theme, with Firefox (not Chrome), with the operating systems listed in previous posts, and at least some versions of Mac OSX.
Also, I’ve tried turning off extensions, plugins, empty cache, and delete cookies, but those didn’t help. Haven’t been able to update Firefox or my Mac OSX system as my “high speed” ain’t so speedy. :(
devorahsperber, which browser (and version) are you running?
sleepingdogsteve, thanks, we’re still looking into this.
And one more piece of information, if it is useful.
I see the strange breaks on the replies to comments only, not on the original comments.
I am using Firefox 17 and I see the same issue in maidiebike’s blog here > http://cyclewriteblog.wordpress.com/2012/12/02/christmas-haiku-meditations/#comment-1444
Thanks for confirming!
I continue to have and see the problem only in the theme of Twenty Eleven – every Twenty Eleven I come across.
It appears to be a justification problem in the comments section – and only in *replies to comments.* It doesn’t happen in the first comment a person makes, but in every reply thereafter – for every person who comments/replies.
It would seem to be a problem in the code for the theme.
Yes, we’re still looking into it. We’ll let you know when it’s resolved.
Thanks. I’m not complaining. Hope it didn’t come across that way. Meant to put a question mark at the end of my last sentence rather than a period.
