Hi,

I am using twitter's bootstrap and the design is using a fluid layout.
The left sidebar is overflowing.
How to make it either truncate or get hidden or a better solution?

It cannot wrap because there is no space in the text.

Just add the style overflow:hidden to the the sidebar.

If your final design is using that obsolete frame approach you will be having a lot more; and a lot more serious problems before you are finished anyway.

Thanks. The frame was just for EE so it doesn't reveal client name etc.
