Layout bug in Neowin's nav bar


 Share

Recommended Posts

As soon as I sign in to Neowin, the nav bar at the top starts occupying two rows. This started to happen since two days ago (I think.)

Things get worse if I try to scroll down: Part of the article always remains obscured.

 

I could reproduce this problem in Firefox and Edge.

Same here... This issue is only in Firefox as it's fine in Chrome and Edge.   Neowin, please test site changes with Firefox.

I think it is to do with your member names being long. I will report it, maybe a good trade off is to do how browsers do it and not display the name in the Nav header, just the photo avatar.

I proposed this to devs, waiting for a response

I suggested the icons be spaced so they are touch friendly too (here they are using the default spacing we now have on the page).

I noticed that my username here is now taking two lines instead of one.

firefox's rendering engine isn't the best IMO. it has a habit of overly padding things compared to other browsers :/ just like the good ol IE days (/s) I've had to make firefox specific CSS padding/margin adjustments to a couple sites/pages I help maintain here at work and it's a pain because it shouldn't be needed.

A joke among the old-time developer is that one can assess the programming experience of software developers by asking them many characters do they allocate to human first names and last names in their databases. Experienced developers allocate 255 characters, no less. Inexperienced developers think 50 or even 20 is enough. The longest family names they can come up with is something like "Ratzenburger".

That doesn't make sense... I am using the same username when test on Chrome and Edge. LOL

It is fixed, ctrl +f5 on main page

We also fixed the search field behavior (now opens to the right covering the icons) and we also fixed the pixelated rounded corners of the search field

I also changed Main to light + dark over several days and my choice stuck. The main page relies on cookies to save the theme, the forums saves it to your account (not cookie preference).
