Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-10-28 17:51:40 UTC
Hallo!

I mainly use Mozilla Firefox for Windows XP SP 2 and the Monobook skins.

Please compare RTL type pages
[[ar:Special:Allmessages]]
[[fa:Special:Allmessages]]
[[he:Special:Allmessages]]
[[ur:Special:Allmessages]]
[[yi:Special:Allmessages]]

with LTR type ones
[[en:Special:Allmessages]]
[[de:Special:Allmessages]]

Tray to resize the browser windows.

Because the (1) navigation / search / toolbox / in other language (sub-)frame /
area are placed right in RTL wikis it happens that the content of the (2) *pages
main (sub-)frame / area* will overlap with (1).

This may happen in all namespaces (and probably in most of the other skins).

Please add en extra vertical scrollbar for RTL wiki's either permanent or
selectable in configurations (PHP or skin definition) which would prevent
overlapping the content of the different areas.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]
Comment 1 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-10-28 17:54:31 UTC
What does the content area overlapping the sidebar have to do with a "vertical
scrollbar" which I presume is the scrollbar provided by the browser.
Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-10-28 19:08:08 UTC
Excuse me if I can not find a better wording. There should be whatever way to
let the browser know which areas should not overlap.

Because the page does not use "HTML frame syntax" (in Monobook etc. skins) to
define the areas another way should be found; I have no clue which one.

I would like to keep the "navigation area" at the right but have a scrollbar for
the remaining "main content area". I thing that scrolling would be better then
overlapping.

Best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]
Comment 3 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-10-28 19:13:18 UTC
So you presume that the only way to fix this problem is to use frames?
Comment 4 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-10-28 19:43:56 UTC
I am not up to date about what is possible in page design and what not.

It might be an idea to use tables to do the job. The "navigation area / table"
would have a fixed width, the "content area / table" not. Most important is to
avoid overlaping; a "scrollbar" would be usefull but is not so important.
Comment 5 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-11-03 20:40:28 UTC
This does not happen with Inter Explorer Version
6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519

adding this bug blocks
bug 1381 Mozilla issues (Gecko, Firefox) (tracking)
Comment 6 Brion Vibber 2005-11-03 21:04:41 UTC
Request makes no sense.
Comment 7 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-11-04 11:41:01 UTC
Please let me know (here) if you see a solution to avoid overlaping of areas in
Mozilla Firefox.

Please open another bug if necessary. Regards Reinhardt [[user:gangleri]] 
Comment 8 Lejonel 2005-11-05 16:22:31 UTC
You can try adding the following to your monobook.css:

#bodyContent {
  overflow: auto;
}

I think that should produce a scrollbar instead of overlapping when the content
width is too large.

Hallo Lejonel;

For
http://yi.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Gangleri/tests/%E2%80%AB%D7%B0%D7%99%D7%A5%E2%80%AB%E2%80%AB%E2%80%AB%E2%80%AB

the up/dows scrollbar covers part of the text. This hight of the page is small
and no scroll bar should be required.

Regarding your sugestion and
http://yi.wiktionary.org/wiki/Special:Allmessages
http://yi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Allmessages

I beleive that due to the size of these pages page content will be lost. With
Mozilla Firefox I can see the messages ("more or less only") until
[[MediaWiki:exif-gpsaltitude]].

Best regards Reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

It would be nice to fix pages like
[[wiktionary:yi:Image:Himalaya_composite.jpg]] in Firefox.
Make the broser window smaller and smaller until you see the problem of the
overlaping areas ("main area" and "navigation area").

It's a Firefox bug, which was fixed in Firefox trunk.
