trackback links are too long

They throw my menu off when viewing or posting comments. Is there some way to fix this?

on here, for instance? http://www.foreverpurple.com/blog/index.php?title=deadwood_eppy_3_new_money&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1#trackbacks

they look fine to me at this resolution but sure, there are a few things you can do .. you can remove the text link, and make it a linkable url similar to this : http://gourmettarts.com/?p=12#comments

Check out how the trackback url is a link.

you could also put the text link inside a div like I have done here:

that fixes it so that the text doesnt hop out of the larger <div>

or you can make your text really really really small :)

hope that helps!

PS:

there are actually more solutions.. you can shorten the URL by doing a cpl things .. renaming htsrv to something really short (one letter even) [thats discussed elsewhere, and also helps deter spam] and then use shorter permalink titles. those are auto-configured for you, but can be overwritten, so rather than use "this_is_a_dog_picture" decide on more precise titles.. like "dog_picture"

something ive struggled with -- more intuitive permalink titles that dont take up a ton of space in the goto bar of my favorite browser
