Hope this is the right area to report. I recently installed WP on site We like the Twenty Seventeen theme as a layout. The width responsive ness is fine in desktop. But it is not on mobile device. In particular, the header title. I shouldn't have to abbreviate my title, I figured the code would adjust the text to fit the screen. Can you offer any assistance? Thanks.

While I've had 20 yrs of html and php basic coding experience, WP is new to me. Where do I find wp-admin/css/media.css?

I've edited the other file.

Hi @woodchuckcanuck, If this patch gets accepted into core, this fix will be in the next release of the theme. If you are looking for a solution now, I would recommend using the css editor in Apperance -> Customize. Another option is it looks like there are no spaces in your title. If there were spaces it would naturally break to new lines.

Are we sure that any site title should be hyphened at all? What I mean is that we're talking about the sites title here not a post and that might be connected straight to branding most of the times.

By hyphening it by default it breaks the whole branding idea.

I don't think this is a theme's matter at all imho, the title could be easily made smaller in responsive design if any user didn't had issues with that, but not by default.

@ianbelanger You are correct in that there is no spaces (breaks). I've always typed it like that for the title, it never dawned on me to type it normally. Duh. I'll give that a try.
@xkon Your raise a good point regarding branding. One of our other trademarks has two words, just as many letters, and has to run together for branding and trademark purposes. Smaller text would work for the title, but again, I don't know where to start, otherwise I would of tweaked it already. When I first installed WP and minor tweaked a page, I ended up having to do a re-install. So I'm a bit leary on making changes.

Thanks for all your comments.
