Lets you set breakpoints on your posts, pages and custom post types title without having to add html to the title by setting markers in the title textfield.

This allow for a better layout of the title on desktop version of the site and when on a mobile device it gives you the ability to remove the breakpoints by adjusting the CSS. Some of the other uses are that you can set markers in the textfield to highlight colours of certain words in the title.

How do I implement the title with markup into my site?

The modified title can be show on the website by adding one of the functions to your source code. <?php the_split_title(); ?> will print the title on the page and <?php echo get_split_title(); ?> will allow you to store it in a variable or print it yourself.

How do I use one of the functions outside the loop?

A Post ID can be added to either function to show a title outside of the loop or on a different page, ex. <?php the_split_title(12); ?>.

How do I add a breakpoint to my title?

Go to either Add/Edit a Post, Page or Custom Post Type and you will find a bar underneath the title textfield. To the left of that bar you will see a button, once pressed this will add a marker at the start of the title. Now by clicking anywhere in the title the marker will then move to that position and that is where the page break will occur in the title. You can add as many markers as needed to the title.

How do I move a breakpoint marker in my title?

Click on the arrow that sits below the marker, that marker will then highlight. Now you can click anywhere in the title to move the marker to that position.

How do I delete a breakpoint marker in my title?

Click on the arrow that sits below the marker, that marker will then highlight. If you look to the left of the bar underneath the textfield you will see a "x" by clicking on that button it will delete the marker.
