When the grid doesn't fit entirely inside the pkp_structure_main div (see non initiated review stage, for example) the part of the grid that's outside the div is not visible.

This is caused by the overflow:hidden css rule defined for the pkp_structure_main div. But removing this will break the side bar arrangement. I sense that we need to solve the side bars markup and styles to fix this one.

Do you have a rough idea what this would look like, Bruno? The sidebar styles are pretty unrefined, so I don't think a rewrite will be disruptive.

Hi Bruno,

I have been looking into this. What behavior would you expect? We could do a media query approach where we hide/reposition/restructure the sidebar. 

Generally speaking though:
The site generally looks fine for screens 1000px and higher. If we want to have it look good below that we are basically talking about creating a responsive theme. I'm not sure how necessary that is in our case. Do we have evidence that a significant number of people uses our site with screens smaller than 1000px width?

If we just fix the sidebar issue we look pretty good for screens down to 750px. That said I don't think that there are many devices out there that would benefit just from that optimization. Let me know what you think.
