2.7 RC1 - now overlapping sidebar and content (3 posts)

    Okay, it's getting there. My content is no longer underneath my sidebar, and that's a big improvement. However, the top-level tabs (but not the sub-menus) are now overlapping the main content.

    A picture is worth a thousand words, so see screenshot here.

    This is not a dire dealbreaker, but it's still annoying and unsightly, especially on the post/page writing pages. If the sub-menu items can fit nicely, surely the same thing can be done to the top-level ones.

    On the bright side, all the other content-fitting issues seem to have been addressed. Almost there.

    Hey be happy, I don't even have a sidebar or a way to get back to my dashboard other then typing in the direct url.

    I have the same problem, and it's still there in the final 2.7 release. It is a design flaw in the admin template CSS and is a side effect of setting absolute font sizes in px units. It is especially noticeable if you use a "minimum font size" setting in your browser (mine is 17px).

    The main content area of the dashboard uses a margin-left:175px. The left column is styled to use a fixed font-size:12px, but if the "wp-has-submenu" class is set it also adds a min-width:10em. That 10em value is dependent on that 12px and anything larger will cause an overflow and overlap into the content area.

    I wish WP designers would learn to use relative font sizing!!! There is absolutely no need for these inflexible layouts!
