Nodelet style broken?

by Anonymous Monk
on Jan 24, 2017 at 19:24 UTC ( #1180232=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The nodelets are displaying without the usual small font and blue border at the moment, just plain text, still aligned at the right of the page, web inspector isn't showing any errors. Did something change?

    Hi,

    There has been no actual CSS changes, one of the gods is messing with the themes ("html")

    they switched out the table/tbody/tr/td with div tags and didn't update the css

    original

    <!--nodelet handling code (monktainer)--> <td width="20%" valign="top" align="right" class="nodelets"> <!-- Begin nodelets --> <table class='nodelet_container' id='nodelet_container'> <!-- Nodelet Break --> <tbody class="nodelet" id="Tick_tock">

    new

    <!--nodelet handling code (monktainer)--> <td width="20%" valign="top" align="right" class="nodelets"> <!-- Begin nodelets --> <div class='nodelet_container' id='nodelet_container'> <!-- Nodelet Break --> <div class="nodelet" id="Log_In"> <div class="nodelet_head">

    experiment or amateur hour?

      Brilliant analysis.

    Howdy!

    I can reproduce the behavior in Firefox, Chrome, and IE on Windows. And it isn't happening here where I'm logged in.

    yours,

    I've now added what I believe is a faithful replication of the old TABLE paths for the new DIV nodes in nodelets to css/common.css. This should address the font sizes I presume.

    I have not looked through the themes to see whether they need adjustment as well.

      Any idea what caused this? I don't see any recent patches which would account for it. Did the static files on one of the servers get corrupted, or something?

        No, the (static) CSS file seems fine, it just didn't match the DIV tags that render for Anonymous Monk.

      Thanks. The font is smaller, but the blue borders and headers are still missing.

        I've made the background blue for the time being but I'm not in the mood of faffing around with CSS and spending hours to replicate the old look. Most likely I will also remove the blue background from the current setup.

    I'm seeing it too, but only when logged out.

    I had assumed it was just IT and their glitchy hijinks again and ignored it, but if you're seeing it too, then it is probably real.

      Well, the cause is due to somebody's IT's hijinks, if not yours. ;->

    What browsers and versions have you tried? Could it be a browser update?
