The style of no style

Markup: Title With Special Characters

Putting special characters in the title should have no adverse effect on the layout or functionality.

Special characters in the post title have been known to cause issues with JavaScript when it is minified, especially in the admin when editing the post itself (ie. issues with metaboxes, media upload, etc.).


Markup: Title With Markup

Phasellus feugiat tristique mollis. Duis lacinia efficitur elit a interdum. Proin sit amet ipsum in enim semper efficitur. Donec convallis arcu ac nunc convallis, in condimentum massa tempor. Quisque interdum erat nec sollicitudin fermentum. In sem nisi, bibendum sit amet convallis sed, pharetra id purus. Donec ex nulla, congue et sodales in, malesuada ut dui. Nam porttitor iaculis enim, eget congue orci congue vel. Sed et augue feugiat, varius massa et, consectetur mi. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.


Title should not overflow the content area

A few things to check for:

  • Non-breaking text in the title, content, and comments should have no adverse effects on layout or functionality.
  • Check the browser window / tab title.
  • If you are a plugin or widget developer, check that this text does not break anything.

The following CSS properties will help you support non-breaking text.

-ms-word-wrap: break-word;
word-wrap: break-word;


This post has no title, but it still must link to the single post view somehow.

This is typically done by placing the permalink on the post date.
