Description Brion Vibber 2011-02-08 01:30:28 UTC
Created attachment 8096 [details]

No problem on IE 8; on IE 6 there's no sliding. Bug occurs on IE 7.

See attached screenshot -- actual page contents don't seem to move down when the jsMessage box slides down in IE 7. The page title does, which leaves the title and the watch info box overlapping other stuff on the page.

Seems fine on MonoBook. No difference whether using text or icon watch tab on Vector.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2011-02-08 01:32:10 UTC
Problem does not appear on prototype -- new code in 1.18?
Comment 2 Bugmeister Bot 2011-08-19 19:12:57 UTC
Unassigning default assignments.
Comment 3 Dan Barrett 2011-09-13 16:56:43 UTC
This happens to me on IE8 on Windows 2008 Server with MediaWiki 1.17.0.

MediaWiki:common.css and MediaWiki:Vector.css and My own user CSS pages are all empty.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2011-09-14 22:19:39 UTC
I notice I can avoid this problem by commenting out the #bodyContent { position: relative } rule from Vector's screen.css

This was added in r52855 by Trevor "to allow absolutes to be relative to it, rather than #content". I'm not sure offhand what will/won't be changed by changing that.
Comment 5 Dan Barrett 2011-09-15 13:29:56 UTC
I can confirm that placing this line in mediawiki:vector.css eliminates the problem:

#bodyContent {
 position: static; /* default "position" value */
Comment 6 Krinkle 2011-09-17 21:07:00 UTC
Yes, but it also likely breaks a huge load of templates and gadgets that live inside the bodyContent and position things around the article (such as top icons, and widgets that live next to, above or below the article)
Comment 7 Dan Barrett 2012-02-09 16:50:03 UTC
I can't seem to reproduce this in MW 1.18.1. The file changed in r52855 (see Comment 4) no longer exists (skins/vector/main-ltr.css). However, #bodyContent does still have "position:relative" in skins/vector/screen.css.
Comment 8 Krinkle 2012-08-31 05:17:15 UTC
Obsolete with bug 26888.
