Thanks for the help! Raising the max-width worked.
This question might not be supported by this forum, which is okay, but if I were to add one or two more characters to this sentence the text would drop down to the next line and sit on top of the first line like the original problem. Raising the width works for this situation, but could cause problems for future posts with long titles. Do you know what I would increase or change in the styles sheet to add more space between the search bar and the text area, so users could create group titles that are long without me having to increase the width each time?
