Long Strings Will Break Your Responsive Theme On Mobile

After I switched the theme to Ryu I’m really impressed by the visual design. Until I found the theme kind of broken on my iPhone.

To be honest, it’s not Ryu’s fault, it’s me that use long strings like URL, Linux command …etc.

The solution is super easy if you know you can always find CSS solutions on CSS-Tricks. One of my long time favorite websites hosted by my long time favorite front-end developer Chris Coyier.

Just want to remind myself and other theme developers: Remember to make your beautifully crafted theme “long string safe”. Your users will be very much appreciated that.

  1. Would be kind enough to elaborate more on “long strings”? Few examples will give us a clear ideas about the issue. Anyway, I am heading to css tricks to find out the solution.

    Also, do provide subscribe to comment option so someone like me can get the follow-up comment via email 😀

    Hey Jay, thanks for your comment and suggestion! I do planning to implement a good comment subscription system into my blog, still looking for a solution better than Jetpack and won’t create extra tables in the DB, any suggestion for me?
