I have a blog, with Duena Theme, and when I write is all ok. The problem is when I publish that text, and the margins of the paragraphs split my words.

For example

The horse is a very wil
d animal and he is eatin
g carrots, salads and lot
s of....

I dont want it to be like that, I don t want my words splitted in half. If it s not enough space, I want all the word to be put down, not parts of it.

This can be done with css. Look for word-wrap and change it to below:

.class-name {
    word-wrap: normal;
    -webkit-hyphens: none;
    -moz-hyphens: none;
    hyphens: none;

Firstly, this is a CSS-specific question.

Somewhere in your stylesheet you have something like the following:

-webkit-hyphens: auto;
   -moz-hyphens: auto;
    -ms-hyphens: auto;
        hyphens: auto;

Either set it generally to none or just for your desired part of the website, for example, the content wrapper.

I just saw you included a sample of how it looks like. Due to the missing hyphens it most probably is word-wrap: break-word; somewhere in your styles, as suggested by @Maruti Mohanty. So, fix this with word-wrap: normal;.
