    Hi all,

    On the widgets.php admin page, when the active sidebars on the right become longer than the possible sidebars on the left, the page breaks. I don’t believe there is a way around this while .widget-liquid-right is set to position: absolute. I had to set mine to position: relative;

    I forgot to mention, this is importer because wp-footer will actually stop being pushed down, and is z-indexed higher than the widgets themselves, meaning in certain circumstances it can completely block a user from clicking the ‘save’ button or taking other actions on a widget.

    Hey @johnrom,

    Thanks for the report, however I was unable to replicate this on my installation.
    I tried adding bunch of widgets and sidebars, tried with both left or right side being longer, but I was still able to scroll and see all of them.

    Could you try disabling your other plugins and switch to default WP theme to see if the issue persists after that.

    Or if I’m missing any steps while replicating please let me know and I’ll give it another try 🙂

    To clarify, I’m referring to any time the custom or core sidebars on the right are longer than the available widgets on the left. You can tell this is happening because the darker gray background on the right cuts off, and WP Footer “Thank you for Creating with WordPress” shows up before the end of the page. This footer is z-indexed higher than the sidebars themselves, so you’ll find that you are unable to click within the space that the footer takes up.

    I’m not sure how to upload an image for use on this forum, so I have chosen a random image upload website. Apologize in advance if this is not the recommended approach. The image below is taken from a fresh install of WordPress 4.6.1 with only Custom Sidebars installed using Twenty Sixteen 1.1

    Hi @johnrom,

    Thanks for the additional info and screenshot, however I’m still unable to replicate this issue completely.
    I do see it going further down the dark grey background but I’m still able to scroll and select widgets.

    Could you tell me which OS and Browser you are using so I can try testing in same conditions?
    Please include version numbers as well.

    Btw, these forums don’t have image upload option, you can use IMG button above text box but you’ll need to paste URL to your image file and it will look like the one I added above 🙂

    Hi Predrag,

    The problem is not that you cannot edit or scroll. The issue is that you cannot click within the box highlighted in my screenshot, specifically within the bounding box of wp-footer. If, as happened to me, the “save” button or any other UI item of a widget happens to fall within this box, you will not be able to click it. For a client, this could be very confusing since it is an invisible element.

    Also, I’m using Chrome Stable 53.0.2785.113 m x64 on Windows 10 x64 build 10586

    Oooh, sorry about that John, I totally missed that part, I can see the issue now as well.

    I have reported this issue to our developer so they can add the fix in next update.
    For now editing wp-content/plugins/custom-sidebars/cs.css on line 155 and changing z-index from 0 to 1 does the trick.

    Thanks for reporting this in and for sticking with me until I got it 😀

    Hope you have a nice weekend!
