Description Meno25 2008-03-20 09:50:48 UTC
Bug description:

In any LTR wiki, when viewing a page while setting an RTL language (ar, fa, he, etc) in your preferences, all tabs are collapsed which makes it difficult to edit any page (press on edit tab).

For illustration of bug please see URL.

Note that there is a gadget on Meta that fixes this

I'm afraid this can't be taken care of, with our current approach about the directional style sheets: We only call RTL styles when the "content" of the wiki is in an RTL language. This means, pieces of CSS that make the preferences page look correct in RTL-contented wikis, won't be called and used on LTR-contented ones, disregarding the uselang parameter.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 6100 ***
Comment 3 Krinkle 2011-05-27 06:46:01 UTC
Removing duplicate to bug 6100, adding dependancy to bug 6100.

This should be taken in to account after fixing bug 6100, to verify that it's fixed.

I don't see the bug on MetaWiki (which at this moment still uses MW 1.17, which is before the RTL improvements). It's probably fixed, but it would be good if someone else confirms it as well.
Comment 5 Siebrand Mazeland 2011-09-12 12:15:27 UTC
Amir, can you please test this?
Comment 6 Amir E. Aharoni 2011-10-04 06:39:04 UTC
I'm not sure what the bug was, and so i am not sure what i should test.

I would guess that it's solved, because the RTL gadget mentioned in the description was deleted and because 1.18 changed so many things in this regard.

Meno25, can you please verify this?
Comment 7 Huji 2011-10-04 12:23:09 UTC
I think I can remember what this bug was talking about, and I believe it is now fixed.
