Hi Zortry,

This usually happens when a piece of content (usually in a table) is wider than expected, causing the main part of the page to be too wide to fit in its space. We're looking into moving to a flexible-width layout to correct this and better accommodate a variety of layouts, but in the meantime, see if you can spot and correct the piece of content that is too wide.

Default ojs/styles/common.css header sizes

Postby ramon » Thu Mar 22, 2007 11:55 am

Dear all,

A small change that can be done to the css file to correct basic overlapping and layout misbehaviour is to set sizes to % or auto. Especially for tables, setting the width: auto; will fix many bugs.

The header items, as well as some footer items have width: 800px. Setting them to 100% or auto will fix some scrollbar issues in most browsers.

Also, setting the #sidebar to float: left; will allow the content to spread to the width of the page. Some minor fixes to the columns will be needed (paddings and margins settings for the content columns) to allow the main content to be displayed away from the sidebar.
