Topic: Long Line without spaces in post

Long lines without any spaces don't display properly.

For example:

The line is not wrapped. This is annoying for example when posting long links (and links are disabled), esp. when forum width is smaller than default.

It's not really a bug, but a adding a feature that splits long lines so they fit would be cool.

But if you split a line and it IS a link then it would become a broken link (not a good thing IMO).  And if it's a piece of code and gets split the meaning and function could be completely broken as a result.

True. I assume having this feature is more trouble than it's worth...

It isn't necessary. The only reason for posting a long line of unbroken text is a text link in which case the code tags can be used.

Moved to PunBB Discussion, since this isn't a bug. wink
You can change the wrapping on the div that contains the post if you don't like it the way it is.

And if you are using unicode, and it eats the long string incorrectly while inserting index words, you will get an error.
