Trackbacks Too Long

One thing about my current theme that was really annoying me was that my trackback URLs were pushing into the sidebar. Roller trackbacks are faily long, and there's no way I was going to go mucking about with the code making them shorter.

So then I remembered that the fancy new Google Analytics system does something nice with URLs that are too long. If you set overflow:hidden on the div, then the URL is cropped if it gets too long, but you can still select the entire thing – the div scrolls when you select text, and double clicking works too.

At first I started editing the roller template, but that is the wrong way. Just edit the div.trackbackUrl style in your stylesheet instead.

More roller hacking.
