Some posters I believe are working with copy and paste from another editor to do their posts.
I hate it when I have to scroll to the right if I want to read such a post.
Is it possible to break such a text in more shorter lines?

Thx
Fred


No, you're never too old to Yak'n'Roll if you're too young to die.

Yeah, I've thought about that a fair bit. I'm not sure there's a good solution though short of a forced preview before posting.

The problem in that link, would be the CODE tags?
They are forcing the width?

Some sites put CODE in a block that gets horizontal scroll bars (and, in some cases, vertical too) [when width exceeds X]

I think the width is usually set pitifully narrow ... but that's just Sysop's Choice of course

This is common on most forum software, and even mediawiki once you say "This Is Code" it just assumes the poster knows what they are doing.

I had the same issue a couple of days ago posting some SQL statements here that ended out being a few pages wide, so I had to manually break the lines.

The problem wont occur if code is properly formatted with line break in Query Analyser and paste it here

Here's quite a nice CSS trick - clips the overly-wide content, but revelas it on mouse-over (but no horizontal scroll bar, so width limited to screen width)
