I have some long pages names that I would like to have wrap (independent of one another) in the navigation bar, with a seperation line between them.  Anyone know of a way to handle this?  Any help is appreciated.  Example of what I'm talking about is attached.

I think you can just create a custom menu (

), and in the navigation labels (for the link titles), you can use <br> tags since HTML is allowed.

Thanks for the help!


Unfortunately, it seems that I would have to use the NavBar to use the custom WP menus, but I'm having to use the Classic Nav because I have a lot of CSS styling on it, adding background images, extending to nav to full width of site, etc.  It's my understanding that making these changes to NavBar is a lot more difficult than they were to make to the Classic Nav.


So, any idea how I can Word-wrap a page title in Classic Nav?

Hi there, you can use custom menus with the classic nav too. When you set the menu up in appearance>menus and save it there's four drop downs in the top left of the page, select 'primary navigation' for your menu and save. This will be used for the classic nav.
