Description Duncan Harris 2005-06-30 20:35:55 UTC
Standard skin

and this happens:

but it also affects the log in, etc buttons at the top right that jump across the page to the left 
hand side of the screen sometimes.
Comment 1 Duncan Harris 2005-07-02 22:12:42 UTC
And the thing at the top is now jumping around too.
Comment 2 Duncan Harris 2005-07-02 22:13:48 UTC
sorry, more info.  It sits at the top of the page when initially downloaded and then when i move 
my mouse over it it jumps to the left hand side of the screen.

More of the same:
Comment 4 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-07-05 12:50:47 UTC
Articles are:

Both look fine with firefox 1.04, screenshots seems to be taken
from an Internet Explorer browser.

As both "bugs" are due to user content, please either:
_ fix them by editing the template
_ ask the templates creators to fix their template for Internet Explorer

Closing as 'invalid', cause there is nothing we can do
in MediaWiki source code for this :(

Comment 5 Duncan Harris 2005-07-05 17:13:40 UTC
Well obviously *everyone* doesn't use bleeding Firefox, and this has nothing 
to do with a template because it doesn't involve templates.
Comment 6 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2005-07-05 23:44:14 UTC
The el cajon article includes:
[[template:Cities of San Diego County, California]]
The table is correctly placed above the category link but for
an unknown reason the image is moved out of the html table.
Might be because of the "margin:0" style applied to the table.

The other article uses:
[[template:Spoken Wikipedia]].
In that one a link is put with a "top:3.2em;" style that's incorrectly
handled by internet explorer. The style should be fixed to works with

In conclusion, this as nothing to do with mediawiki code but is a
HTML / internet explorer trouble and there is nothing we can do to
patch this issue.
