Description (last modified by Christian Boos)

Using the trac system over at trac.buddypress.org and I just filed a ticket with the app over there. What I noticed is that thee trac system has a similar issue as with our app. :-D

I know, who would actually do this? I don't know but someone did it on the test site…

Test Description: "0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000"


Could be alternatively wrapped into a {{{...}}} block, as:

In a case like this, one thing you can do is use

overflow: hidden

This is what we've submitted to the live app.

I don't know if there's really something we want to do here: in newer version of Trac, you could edit (#454) and fix such issues, and you always could have done so in the description.

Fixing such a display problem (e.g. wrapping the long line in a {{{ ... }}} block so as to get and overflow: scroll block just for that line) is certainly better than having a systematic overflow: scroll or even overflow: auto over the description (and comments, and …).

overflow: hidden is certainly not the way to go for us, at least ;-)

So I'd vote for worksforme, given you could always fix the formatting by doing further edits, if you want to.
