text does not show correctly

Post by onlyblue » Mon Aug 31, 2015 1:20 pm

I have a site running joomla 1.5
my template has 4 columns
on the second column I keep the articles.

I have the following problem.
when a line is more than the width of this column, the text does not wrap to another line. it just disappears

how I would solve this problem

Without being able to see the website, or at least a screenshot, I'm going to guess that the template may be styled so that white-space is set to nowrap and overflow is hidden.

I have sort it out.
The problem had to do with "garbage" coming when the user was copying/paste from word to the articles.
This was causing the text that overflow not to be displayed.

I would like to know if anybody has similar issues, and if there is a way to remove all the "garbage" when the user is using the Microsoft word?

Personally, I drop my text into Notepad first. Some editors (JCE) have a "Paste from Word" button, which strips out all of the nonsense that comes with Word docs.

In the extension JCE Editor (http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... ditors/jce), there is an option to Paste as Plain Text which will come handy to paste text copied from Word Document.
