[resolved] Dashboard - All Posts display problem (5 posts)

    Working on a site, just updated everything. Theme is Twenty Eleven, also just updated.

    But now, in Dashboard, when I go to:

    Posts > All Posts

    They are all there, 20 per screen as set up, BUT, each post is set off from the next by about a full screen's worth of blank space!

    Did some exploration by examining CSS, but no luck thus far. Has anyone else seen/fixed this?

    TIA!

    Have you cleared both any server cache in use and also your local browser cache? Have you seen this in multiple browsers? I have not seen this issue with WP3.8, Twentyeleven 1.7 and any modern browser.

    That said, look at top right under search. There are two icons, toggle them. Any difference?

    If none of this fixes the issue, deactivate all plugins and then activate one at a time, each time clearing browser cache (turn server cache off during site updates, troubleshooting). When the issue returns you have found the culprit.

    Weird, weird, weird!

    I am working on a site where unfortunately the previous "maintainer" put all of his custom CSS into the primary theme file, instead of using a child theme or an additional custom CSS file.

    I traced the problem to a single line of code he had added, thus:
    #comments { width:100%; }

    I just commented it out (ironic...) and everything went back to normal.

    The typical bag of plugins, together with inevitable problems when something gets updated (and breaks something else...), is always fun with WordPress!!

    Thanks for your help.

    Actually, that is even weirder as any theme customizations would have been lost on theme update...

    Well, not really. I had to find ALL of those custom lines he added and put them in my separate CSS file, just to preserve the look of the site.

    I knew I was on the right track when I disabled my CSS file and the problem vanished. Then it was just a matter of disabling all of hte likely culprits one by one and observing the change (or lack thereof).

    I haven't had a chance to look into what that line was supposed to do in the older version of Twenty Eleven...
