Let's get rid of that and treat super-long titles as edge cases. We've also taken care of a small bug in the site footer which was causing scrollbars to appear on sites.
  • Patch: Ensure that when the site title is hidden the menu toggle is still available to mobile visitors.
  • Patch: Fix minor DocBlock typos and other inline documentation.
