Menus not displaying correctly in chrome

Asked by Bill Gosse on 2012-08-06

Menus don't seem to be displaying correctly in the latest version of chrome. Menu text is wrapping when it shouldn't be and some menus are getting buried behind the Front Page and Dashboard buttons. Has anyone else seen issues with chrome? Browser are so annoying sometimes.

I not seeing the behavior in either IE or FF. The only thing weird i see with IE is the test in an input is not being centered vertically correctly. FF seems to have no issue.

I usually use http://imgur.com/ to share screenshot, because I use this excellent Chrome extension:

However you can always contact me directly at greg-at-phpdevshell-dot-org.

Hi Guys,

I am aware there are a few glitches with menus if they get too long, the menu system will change in 3.2.1 to correct this.

Greg (gregfr) said : #7

This seems to be a Chrome bug with padding in em; if I change

#nav a {
padding: .5em;
}

to

#nav a {
padding: 5px;
}

it works again.

As Chrome is auto-upgrading, I cannot test with an older version if it's a version 21 bug, but I never seen it before.

Bill Gosse (bill-gosse) said : #8

So what file is this change made in?

Greg (gregfr) said : #9

Create a file named "chrome_css_fix.css" at the root of the PHPDevShell installation, with this content:

#nav a {
 padding: 5px !important;
}

Log in to your PHPDevShell installation as root, then go to

System Management > System Admin > System Settings

In the "Theme Settings" tag, locate the field "Custom CSS" and type the name of the file: chrome_css_fix.css

This should fix the problem until we release a new version.
