Private messages with multiple users obstructs title bar


(Robert Lee) #1

As you can see the title bar gets pushed down and obstructed, apologies if this has already been reported.


Title hidden by multi line users in private message
Visual bug on PM

Already reported, but I can’t find it. I thought @sam had fixed it before?


(Robert Lee) #3

Ah sorry :cry: I tried searching, but I obviously failed at that!

Feel free to close/delete this then.


(Brentley Jones) #4

Don’t get me wrong, until someone else can find it, this is a valid bug. I also can’t find it via searching.


(Robert Lee) #5

Good to know I’m not being stupid! :thumbsup:


(Theron Boerner) #6

We need this fixed! Still persists even today.


(Sam Saffron) #7

I agree this needs to be fixed, but this is a nightmare to fix. especially when you need to account of the dynamic sizing of the composer area.

html mocks / css mocks of how to fix this more than welcome


(Theron Boerner) #8

Set max-width on .ac-wrap.clearfix instead of width?

Doesn’t solve the problem but it’s a temp fix.


(Sam Saffron) #9

How does it look on a narrow browser / wide browser?
What happens on mobile?
Preview on / off?
What happens when you have 10 users?

Probably not easy to implement but just throwing a possible direction.


(Sam Saffron) #11

Some widget like this would solve the issue quite nicely. Any chance you can get your dev environment going ? :slight_smile:


(lid) #12

I probably would have long time ago, if virtualbox didn’t have so many networking bugs.

but I am working on it and around it :smile:


(Kevin P. Fleming) #13

I just ran into this yesterday; it was definitely non-obvious what was happening and how to recover from it.


(Sam Saffron) #14

We need a new widget here, the mockup by @Lid is a reasonable approach cc @awesomerobot


(Marcus Baw) #15

This bug still alive and well unfortunately:

adding more users to the message…

adding even more users to the message…

(TechnoBear) #16

Just two users with long usernames is enough to cause an issue:


(Sam Saffron) #17

@eviltrout if your list empties up it would be mighty nice to have a widget like @lid proposed, it’s probably one of our oldest UI quirks


(Joshua Rosenfeld) #18

This is still alive and well today…


…any updates on a fix?


(Jeff Atwood) #19

Easier to just get group mentions working.


(Joshua Rosenfeld) #20

What is a group mention? I see it listed as a 1.5 feature, but no linked feature post…
