Rt 3.8.0 web2 CSS wierdness


#1

There’s some nice new options for Search/Build.html (such as all the
Queue* stuff, but the label field is a bit narrow.
Attached is a patch that allows me to see the tail end of such options
as “QueueAdminCC EmailAddress” rather than just a list of “QueueAdminC”.

So, the problem with making things that wide in the default view is
that on many browsers and screens, the query view gets cut off:/

Then the contents of the fields need to be shorter, or ragged left, or
something. the 3.4 and 3.5 skins don’t specify a width so things are
still getting pushed around.

Patches are certainly welcome, as are entirely new themes. We’ve spent
a good few developer days trying to improve the style and layout of
just that section of the page and make it work reasonably well on
Firefox 2 and 3, Safari, Opera and IE 6 and 7. I’m not likely to spend
any more time on it in the near future unless it’s for someone who’s
paying us or holding my family hostage.

Yep. We didn’t change how those themes render…well, anything for 3.8.
