Description Mohamed 2006-12-29 17:32:30 UTC
Hello all,
In the Arabic Wikipedia, only on IE7 the wiki logo is displayed over the side
bar links, hiding them beneath due to the z-index: 3;
I've fixed this partially using "position: relative;" instead of the default
"position: absolute;" inside the logo class and added it to my monobook.css file
and it worked well on IE, but this lead to shifting down the logo on Firefox.
this is not happening on other rtl projects.
maybe if we added the solution above to the ie70fixes.css it won't affect
Firefox in anyway?

Thanks for your help in advance

This doesn't happen with other wikis (,, etc)
so it's probably caused by some custom CSS. I'll take a poke...

Fixed in r18646 / r18647.

Problem was that the IE 7 tweaks for RTL relied on the name of the first sidebar
section being "navigation", which was not true due to a customized

I've changed the tweak method so it no longer requires this.
