Required CSS layout tweaks for new vertical timeline in 1.6?


It looks really messy with larger width forums:

Haven’t figured out how to fix it in the CSS yet, but just be warned if you are upgrading.

Change right gutter to vertical timeline + topic controls

Is that a screensize issue, or something to do with a custom CSS? You can probably bank that all sites’ custom CSS is probably going to have to change to incorporate the timeline once it’s released to the wild…

.timeline-container {
    margin-left: 757px;

Resize the margin with something bigger, and that should do it


Thanks, just figured it out myself. Set it to 180px and it is fine now.

w00t! excited to see this on my site. Nice work. :rocket:

I have a custom menu across the top - this causes the top of the vertical nav to be pushed down by the same amount. Is there a recommended css customization to move it back up so it aligns with the top of the first post like it does here on meta?

Arff with another language than english I have this

Should "Reply" appear in the right gutter?

Should be quite easy to fix.

.timeline-container .topic-timeline {
    margin-left: 3em;
    min-width: 150px;
    width: 100%;

@codinghorror expressed some concern, but I tested it on a few devices and it looks fine to me.

This is the actual size:

So yes, 150px width is safe, but anything more (even 20px more) would impact iPad.
