I want to enable line breaks for anchors (hyperlinks)

01 Jan 2020, 16:57

I already tried this by modifying the CSS for hyperlinks but ended up with a hover behavior that lost part of the hover effect. Is there a way to prevent that from happening?

And happy new year to everyone :-).

I'm not sure in this context what you mean by "enable" line-breaks. A line-break in html is represented by <br>, and you can easily add line-breaks to any anchor links using HTML:
Code
<a href="https://www.photo.gallery">this is<br>a test<a>
Or markdown:
Code
[this is<br>a test](https://www.photo.gallery)

Or do you mean you want existing anchor links to be able to wrap onto new lines? Likely you will need to override white-space: nowrap; and set it to white-space: normal; for links. This might have a negative effect on hover effects for links that wrap onto new two lines.

Sorry for the confusion, yes, this is, what I want. I already tried setting the white-space attribute to normal but the nice hover effect disappears. There's nothing I can do against this, right?

How did you set it? If you set it via CSS, I believe you should keep the hover effect, but it may look strange when links break onto new lines. Settings > Custom > Custom CSS:
Code
.content a {
  white-space: normal !important;
}

Partially it does, yes. The "block" which usually appears around the links is gone, the hover effect itself remains.

Not quite sure what "block" you are referring to. Do you have a link? When I test here, the hover effect remains.

Sure. Please see the second to last section, there's a hyperlink with a line break in it.

I couldn't see any link <a> with line-break <br>:

I did however inject a <br> tag from inspector, and I see now that it doesn't work. Unfortunately, this is because the hover background effect is set in position: absolute on the elements :after pseudo element. This is to be able to use padding on the background, without affecting the link itself. Unfortunately, this positioning is simply not compatible with breaking a link across two lines, because the link is simply not a "block" any more.

The only solution, is to DISABLE the special link hover style by using class="no-link-style" if/when you need to break a text link across multiple lines. It can be done for a single link:
Code
<a href="/kontakt/" class="no-link-style">sprecht uns <br>einfach an</a>
Or you can add it to a container element, in which case it will affect all links inside:
Code
<div class="no-link-style">
  <a href="/kontakt/">sprecht uns <br>einfach an</a>
  some text
  <a href="/kontakt/">sprecht uns <br>einfach an</a>
</div>
