Displaced Avatar RRS feed

  • Question

  • There was some change in the formatting today that causes the avatar to be misplaced on some forums (not all)  when the thread is expanded (either in Forum view or Thread view) when viewed on FireFox 2 (or SeaMonkey 1).

    Previously the avatar was shown to the left of the screen name and the medals. Now the avatar is placed to the left of the screen name, but above the medals, which causes the avatar to poke out above the bounding box into the post above.

    I know FireFox 2 is not a target browser, but it was working fine before (with a couple of manageable quirks).

    A forum that I see this on is Visual C++ Language.

  • We changed the formatting to put affiliation on its own line between display name and medals. Looks like this introduced a little bit of avatar misplacement. We'll try to get this fixed in our next update.

  • Now it seems to be happening on all the forums that I use.

  • Thanks, Brent, I am a SeaMonkey (Mozilla Suite ) user, and SeaMonkey has not yet moved to the FireFox 3 rendering engine. SeaMonkey 2 (hopefully out soon) will use the FireFox 3 engine.

    While you are at it (!), the main thing that has always been wrong for V4 on FireFox 2 is that the arrow for expanding the thread in forum view is missing (fortunately you can expand the thread by clicking to the right of the thread subject -- don't change this, I like it!).
