How to solve this?

Luckily, there’s a simple CSS trick anybody can use.

The CSS rule word-break: break-word;  needs to applied to selectors for titles in question.

In our WordPress theme for surfers, Shaka, you might have the following examples for front page and blog:

.latest-news__title a {
  word-break: break-word;


h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hentry__title, .hentry__title a, .latest-news--block .latest-news__title a, .latest-news--more-news, .page-box__title a, .sidebar__headings {
  word-break: break-word;

Insert such CSS code in Customize > Additional CSS if you’re using WP 4.7 or later.
