"X new topics" has a gap at the top which can lead to accidental sorting of categories

(Drew) #1

The “x new topics” (button?) doesn’t cover the whole topic sorting header:

If I click on that spot, meaning to click on the “Click to show” button, I accidentally sort the topics by category instead. Here’s a screenshot of what happens after I click where my cursor is in the first screenshot:

This can be slightly annoying when I accidentally misclick and end up sorting by category instead of what I wanted to press. It’d be nice if something was in place to prevent that from happening. Here are some suggestions:

  • Extend the height of the “X new topics” button
  • Lower the height of the sort buttons to where their Y pixel 0 is in the same place as the “X new topics” Y pixel 0
  • Disable sort header while “X new topics” button is displayed
  • Disable top portion (above the “X new topics” button) of sort header when “X new topics” is displayed

Just ran into this today, looks like it is not yet resolved. Able to repro right here on Meta.

Sure @neil is cleaning up some mobile stuff, can you add this to your plate too?

I pushed a fix so that the alert fully covers the column headings.
