Description Matthew Flaschen 2013-02-10 06:26:52 UTC
There are some CSS oddities on the live Wikipedias with GuidedTour and RTL languages.  It is evident in production mode, not debug.

This is separate from bug 44804.  For example, it is evident even when the guider is in the center (which requires no flipping)

It is not present on test machines, so it might be related to something in e.g. Common.css

looks fine.


are transparent, and the okay button is wrong.

It is not present when there is no flipping, e.g.:

so there might be some connection to CSSJanus.

It's discarding all of the CSS from the library proper.  Inspect the element with id gt-test-1 on both:


You can see the bottom .guider ruleset is missing for Arabic.

I'm refiling for ResourceLoader/CSSJanus.  For reference, you can see how the dependencies are laid out at;a=blob;f=GuidedTour.php;h=24bba9617a5196aced68c6ed0854b97a63d37240;hb=refs/heads/master

This seems similar to bug 38294 (although the workarounds there are merged) and bug 35059.

I'm assigning back to core.  I think it's it's either a bug in core or the WMF's installation.

GuidedTour is a symptom.
