update on scrollbars problem

  • Sep. 8th, 2006 at 12:15 PM
We (LJ) updated the CSS so that instead of images and other content being cut off if they were too large to fit in the content area, scrollbars would show up instead. The idea was that scrollbars would show in the entry area rather than the whole column, especially if only one entry needed it.

This change went live yesterday. Since then, we've been getting reports of scrollbars randomly showing up on almost all entries, regardless of whether or not there was content that didn't fit. We found out this was occuring only in older versions of browsers (maybe the current version of Netscape, can anyone confirm this?).

We made some changes, which hopefully fixes the scrollbars randomly showing up. If you added the css to "undo" the changes from yesterday, please remove it as they may not mesh nicely with the new changes.

If the new set of changes are still causing unwanted scrollbars, we'll be reverting back to the no-scrollbars version. We wanted to provide this for everyone who was unhappy with their images being cut off, but if the choice comes down to cut-off images or scrollbars everywhere, I think most of us would be happier with the cut-off images.

This appears to be worse. I'm now getting them in Firefox 1.5 when I wasn't seeing any at all before!

Contrary to sbisson, I only had them on entries that required them before (very few) and still only on ones that requires them (e.g. apod). Looks good to me - something I wish I could have got to work in one of my previous layouts.

Anyway, I'm using Firefox, Windows XP Home SP2.

I've only seen them on entries that needed them, so I'm happy. However, I have a request; can the tags wrap around when they are too long? I have friends who use multiple tags on entries, and while the entry itself is not wide enough to cause scrollbars, the tag line is.

Not sure if this is considered the same thing but, please take a look
here and here and tell me what you think.

Thanks so much!
