Slight CSS bug when using a custom global navigation bar


(Robby O'Connor) #1

So OpenMRS uses a global navigation bar and I upgraded to the latest c3ceb6ef7d0886a0165df5354042c6588ac4b7e5 and noticed that our globalnav bar covers the our header, see below:

Anybody have any insight into some CSS fixes that potentially help mitigate this?

Fairly certain this is due to the custom CSS, not a bug. Can you post your custom CSS?

Any insight? :frowning2:


(cpradio) #5

That commit you link to is definitely not the cause, the cause is the fact that .d-header is using position:fixed, due to getting the class docked

This seems related to this change by @eviltrout (maybe he can look deeper, but it seems to be due to getting a class of docked when you shouldn’t… ?)


(Robby O'Connor) #6

I know – i just linked to the latest I updated to :slight_smile: I’m gonna update and see if it fixes things…


(Robby O'Connor) #7

I can confirm that removing

position: fixed; 

from d-header fixes it

PR coming


(cpradio) #8

I don’t think you want to do that PR, the position:fixed is intential for when you are scrolling down the topic list/reading a topic. Without it, the header will scroll out of view. What needs to happen is it shouldn’t apply docked when you are at the very top.


(Robby O'Connor) #9

Any tips on how to fix this @cpradio?


(cpradio) #10

Yes, if you view the examineDockHeader at this point

And compare it to dockCheck at

You will see it doesn’t seem to be utilizing the window.pageYOffset check and the $('html').scrollTop() check anymore. That seems to be the cause to applying the docked class inappropriately (if I had to venture a guess).


(Robby O'Connor) #11

It’s weird – if I scroll – our navbar just goes away :frowning:


(cpradio) #12

I was wondering if that was intentional or not. I didn’t dig into why that was happening, but I imagine it may be for similar reasons.


(Robby O'Connor) #13

I think this should be moved back to #bug because it’s not our fault, it’s the fault…and definitely is a bug…


(cpradio) #14

Yeah, the docked class thing is definitely a bug, the disappearing on scroll… well, that is due to the custom CSS using position: relative on your header, that will definitely scroll with page scrolling. You’d have to use position:fixed and remove the margin: -27px 0 0 to stop it from scrolling off screen.

Should note that HTG’s header disappears whilst scrolling and his site is before the CSS changes I linked to previously, so that tells me if you want a static header to show all of the time, you have to modify your CSS to make that happen.


(Robby O'Connor) #15

So update: The CSS quirk only appears in discourse and it’s recent – all of OpenMRS’ other services show the navbar correctly…so not sure what to do from here…I’m at a loss :frowning:


(cpradio) #16

I don’t understand. When I visit the main site, scrolling makes that top gray header disappear… It doesn’t remain fixed. Or are you still refering to the docked class, which is definitely a bug related to the timeline changes (so it seems)


(Robby O'Connor) #17

I assume you’re talking about this – but yes I am referring to the docked class which causes the navbar to overlay the header…the disappearing when it scrolls is something i don’t really feel like dealing with. It works fine and as we want it…but on discourse, it fails…this is a recent thing when I updated :frowning:


(Robby O'Connor) #18

Can confirm that this is fixed. THANK YOU!
