"Latest Blogs" on the SCN home page - titles truncated

While I'm happy to see at least some meaningful content on the SCN home page - did noone notice that the blog titles are truncated?

It seems the Procrustean bed here is 2 lines. Not sure why but maybe at least add '...' at the end in such cases? Otherwise it looks odd and definitely not as the author intended, e.g.: "Planning for ... ? Check!". :)

    Hi Jelena,

    I'm checking with the team that manages these RSS feeds to see if we can make any adjustments. The feeds themselves are limited, so there may not be an immediate solution.

    The feeds that are under development for the next homepage iteration will have more flexibility to adjust for headers, blogger name and avatars.

    Thanks for pointing that out.

    • I used developer tools in my browser to change the properties of some objects. It is very simple: you click inspect element, find the object, then you edit the properties, which you need.

      With Firefox and similar browsers it is possible to save the settings for future use in userContent.css.

      In my case, I added there the following lines for test purposes to obtain the result from the screenshot:

      @-moz-document domain( {
      div.sectionContainer .width-preset-l{width: 1500px !important;}
      .threeColumnFeedStyle{max-width: 1500px !important;}
      .feeds-container{margin-right: 0% !important; margin-left: 5% !important;}

      I suppose, that for really long blog titles this won't be enough and one needs to play also with .feed-title{max-height:} to allow 3 lines per blog title, but this is trivial :)
