Positioning issues with RTL locales after recent updates

Hello, I hope you are well.

after last update today i got a crashed user card :frowning:

and it down with main container


There used to be special handling of the user card position for RTL locales: https://github.com/discourse/discourse/blob/4896a7dec79203cd44265bb2372c2b4a223c3d26/app/assets/javascripts/discourse/views/user-card.js.es6#L86-L120

With the updates to the user card, that seems to have been removed. The left position in the user card’s inline styles is wrong for RTL locales. From memory, I think the easiest way to deal with it is to set a right position for the user card when an RTL locale is used. The left and right properties can’t just be switched in the inline style rule though.

Hello, New Update
the Reply button doesn’t work


It “works”, but the post editor isn’t usable.

These issues can be reproduced on Meta if you select an RTL locale for your interface language:

Edit: the issue I’m finding with the composer on Meta seems to be related to GitHub - discourse/discourse-full-width-component: Make Discourse occupy the full browser width.

The issue with user cards can be reproduced on either Meta or try.discourse.org in safe mode.

Also, the user-tip modals are incorrectly positioned for RTL locales in safe mode:


it doesn’t work in my forum for me and for my members

Can you try loading your site in safe mode to see if that fixes some of the problems? To do that, append the following onto the URL in your browser’s address bar:


For example https://try.discourse.org/t/what-do-the-avatars-in-the-topic-list-mean/65?safe_mode=no_themes,no_plugins
