    Brace yourselves, I'm about to say something you don't see often around bhw: I sometimes use the search function!
    (and if you don't, then you should too)

    That being said, there is a quite annoying display glitch in the search results: if a thread title is to long to fit on a single line, then you can't see it in full. This makes browsing through results quite of a pain. Example screencap:

    I took a quick look at the css and noticed that these thread titles as displayed in search results are <h3> with the .searchtitle class.
    This class is given a fixed height value of 15.99px.
    Removing this value, or replacing it with "auto" fixes the thing (see screenshot below)

    I hope an admin can implement this tiny CSS fix to make every search-function-users' lives easier :)

    Well spotted, to be honest i never use the search function here, as it doesn't perform as well as just searching the site from google. Sorry to say :(
