Comment Word Wrap is seriously FUBAR


Several comments I’ve read in the last few hours aren’t word wrapping correctly. Hopefully, if I keep making this sentence as long as possible this would also show up in a Forum post.

Annoying, to say the least.

    This thread is becoming a SPAM thread. The Word Wrap is still seriously FUBAR. This may explain why it is taking much longer than anticipated. Hmmm, it seems to be working now ( at least this post) but not on the older entries. So, maybe not.... edit1: nope still hosed... edit2: I see all the spam posts were removed, thank you

    So now we're getting spammed in the comment section! This site is seroiusly disappointing. I frequent many forums and none have word wrap issues let alone allow spammers in!

    Suprtra needs to be banned.

    Can I get a refund on my premium membership?

    Four Weeks now and no resolution to this issue. Well, at least the spam comments have ceased.

    At the moment, 20:45 Zulu 4 August 2017, it looks like it's fixed again.

    Odd that Firefox apparently needs to handle this via hyphenation rather than crude word wrap, which would have put interesting all on the 3rd line and shifted subsequent text down, which is what Chrome and Opera do. I don't use any other commenting system which needs hyphenation rather than crude word wrap for Firefox.

      Fixed my A$$, This is just Duct Tape. It didn't need hyphenation to work. This is probably just what they had to do because they couldn't figure it out. That 3rd party program they mentioned probably isn't play nice with their efforts and so we got the Disneyland solution. Lipstick on a PIG.

        Fixed in the sense that hyphenation is a generally acceptable way to trim long lines of text. Certainly better than breaking words at any character. Agreed it's not the best way to fix this, and to repeat it seems odd that Firefox can't wrap the same way that Chrome and Opera can.

    3 weeks and counting.

      So here's the deal...

      This fix was live and for a number of days. This fix was pushed out with a batch of code that contained an issue that impacted a small number of members in a completely unrelated but significantly more detrimental fashion.

      That issue is tied to a conflict with a third party vendor's code. That conflict is being worked on (alongside that 3rd party vendor) right now. It is my hope that both of these known bugs are addressed and live before the end of the weekend.

    This is also happening in Edge.

    Do you have a link to an example?

      ADDED: only happens in Firefox. Chrome and Opera have correct word wrap on my system.

      Hi Brad.

      I see this in Edge and Firefox. You can see it well when you resize the page.

    What is the status of this issue

  10. RoHo

    try to read the comments on this article, word wrap isn't working. I have to re read a sentence all the time.

  11. Brad Sams

    If you are seeing this bug, please let me know what browser...a screenshot would be helpful too.

  12. RoHo

    It appears that the word wrap issue is with Firefox. I logged in with Chrome and don't see it.

    Anyone know how to fix word wrap in FF? I'm not giving up FF. I just won't do comments here anymore.

  13. qwerty2002

    We have a job to do, please fix it quickly?

  14. RoHo

    It was still present today when I read your post on cable cutting

  15. hrlngrv

    Still screwed up as of 19:55 Zulu 23 July 2017. I'd note that it looks like this site is trying to right-align comment text.

  16. Oasis

    Still broken for Firefox on Windows(7) after 17 days. What is up with that?
