How can one force a line break for long Module names?

Here is how I am doing it now.

I opened this file...

C:\inetpub\wwwroot\dotnetnuke\admin\ControlPanel\ControlBar.css

...I made a backup copy of it as-is just in case...

...and then at the bottom of the file I added this hack...

/* NOTE. mfk. 2018-05-23. Added. This will force line wrap for long names in the Add New Module tray. */

#ControlBar_Module_AddNewModule .ControlBar_ModuleDiv span
{
word-wrap: break-word !important;
}

...and now when I choose > Modules, > Add New Module, > My Modules

...my custom Modules names (which are quite long and were thereby truncated by the old CSS) are wrapped by force using this new CSS....

...and it works, but is there a better way?

Please advise.

BTW, I am using DotNetNuke 8.0.3 and cannot upgrade due to my client.

Thanks.

 The problem with that approach is that you are changing the DNN core.
So on the next DNN upgrade you would have to make the same change.
It's better to add your css to either the skin package (skin.css most likely) or per portal to the portals CSS (site settings or Portal.css)

Timo,

Ah, you are right, I have moved it to Portal.css and it is now fine.

Thanks.
