#6174 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Secondardy feed: If blog title is too long, box will be larger, thus messing the entire section

Reported by: mastermind Owned by: mdawaffe
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: minor Version: 2.5
Component: General Keywords: has-patch 2nd-opinion
Focuses: Cc:


If a blog's title in the secondary feeds is too long it is wrapped. This however causes the link (which is display: block;) to be higher than the others, thus messing up the nice order of the floating boxes. See attached screenshot (note: the fact that the blog titles are actually the post titles on the screenshot can be ignored).

Solution: Either set the line with the blog's title to white-space: no-wrap; or set a fixed height for the link boxes.

Tested in FF3b4 - works.

It does no more totally mess up that section, but still it's not perfect (see attachment). I have the feeling that this was better handled in earlier WP versions. However, it's definitely a minor issue.

Worksforme. If we knew what browsers still showed strange layout, we could fix.
