Default template.css file doesn't wrap long words

Post by Niksuski » Wed Dec 02, 2015 10:01 am


I installed Joomla and then I made a post with very long text. The css file didn't have any kind of word-wrap for long words, see the image in attachments for reference.

I added a single line to the html styling in /templates/protostar/css/template.css:
word-wrap: break-word;

This fixed the issue. I'd recommend this fix is included by default in the package?
