Perfect Newspaper Titles

January 4, 1949 ·

Old Newspaper titles are huge, and that is how they are supposed to be. In some situations, that may create some awkward word-breaks here and there. Here is how to control it in the unlikely event of an emergency.

If you want to control where long words are hyphenated when they break, add the tag ­ in the title, exactly where you want it to break.

I have done this in the title about Huckleberry Finn. I broke it like Adven-ture, and Huckle-berry. Pull the browser on desktop to test.

Warning: If you export your content, WordPress will remove all your shy tags from the titles and you will have to put them back in again. So this is for the really nit-picky!
