Front page sidebar breakage



  • Tried to search, couldn't find anything else about this, so...

    Safari:

    Firefox:

    Is anyone else seeing this on the front page? It looks crap (and probably broken or at least unintentional).


  • area_deu

    Yup!



  • Even better, in Chrome it renders like:

    edit: no, that's the responsive styling being terrible. they expand automatically if you size the window slightly larger.

    Did anyone ever actually test this? ;)


  • area_deu

    Yeah but!
    Expanding the foldables still unveils a mess.

    I love how the Vivaldi thread (which is long past its prime and was bumped after two weeks) made it to the sidebar front page.

    I feel like the hot topic thermometer is a little broken.

    Looks same on Firefox (Linux). Chromium and Konqueror OK, if the window is (at least about) 1024 pixels wide.

    Tested with several window widths. Conclusion: if you use a different browser and/or a different window size than the discodevs, you are Doing It Wrong™.

    Just a wild guess: When the discoheat drops below 0°F, it is converted to Kelvin, then that value is re-interpreted on the Rankine scale and converted to Réaumur.



  • My window is 1600 pixels wide and it still renders weirdly.

    I don't think we can blame them, they didn't design the front page.



  • So it is a problem with rendering lists.

    Edit: The page source reveals:

             <ul>
                <li><div><a href="/articles/random">Random Article</a></div></li>
    

    All I found about div alignment in the css is

    vertical-align: baseline;

    As div is a block element, it should be confined to a rectangular area. (IIRC that is mostly done by starting a new line, but I don't know whether it is allowed to put it to the right of a neighboring sibling.)

    (That's what I've found so far.)
