in thread Title bar and menu face lift?

G'day jdporter,

I'm reasonably certain that the "flex" to which Lady Aleena refers, is the W3C's "CSS Flexible Box Layout" module. If you look at the CSS listing (top, right-hand panel) in the "new code", you'll see:

... div#title { display: flex; flex-direction: row; flex-wrap: wrap; ... } ...

[Note: I see the content of the new code linked page has changed since I viewed it yesterday (when I approved the node). I don't know exactly what changed; however, the overall layout is different (links moved from the top of the page to a new side bar; new content in this side bar). Obviously, I have no idea which version you may have seen.]

This CSS module is a work in progress. It does seem to have stalled close to two years ago. This may affect the choice to use it. From the "Status of this document" section:

"... This document will remain a Candidate Recommendation at least until 19 December 2018 in order to ensure the opportunity for wide review."


"Publication as a Candidate Recommendation does not imply endorsement by the W3C Membership. This is a draft document and may be updated, replaced or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is inappropriate to cite this document as other than work in progress."

My intention is not to dissuade usage — I've certainly used plenty of W3C's Candidate Recommendations over the years — but I felt it was important to advise the current, non-stable status of this CSS module.

For what it's worth, I don't mind the general direction of this proposed change; although, I preferred what I saw yesterday, to what I'm seeing today.

    Thank you, sir. I like the direction of this kind of change. And I have no qualms at all about using an old/stale module, if it gets the job done. (We are using Perl after all, aren't we? lol) If/when something like this gets implemented here, you should still have a good degree of configurability, just as you do now. I wouldn't expect you to get locked into a certain layout.

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
