Well I’m done just lurking and have finally begun working with radiant.
On this project, we’ve had to modify the edit_page.rhtml to add some
fields. I ran into issues when trying to stylize these elements
First of all, the CSS problems don’t seem to be limited to IE (I’m
testing with 6 right now). I also get some odd results using Firefox
I’m seeing two distinct issues:
1.) The .fieldset tables (within the div.extended_metadata) is set to
choose some odd widths for the columns with input textboxes. Right now
the textbox width is derived from a weird combination of the 100% style
and the maxlength property. Actually, this looks fine on the default
edit_page using Firefox but add a text box with a greater maxlength
(currently the largest is 160 characters) and watch what happens. And
even Firefox shows this odd behavior on the default edit_layout page
(click “more” for content-type).
Opera shows all these oddly but IE 6 really goes bonkers with this one -
sending the textboxes off the edge of the screen. Though, in this case
I don’t fully blame IE - the applied styles here are a bit, well,
2.) I’m not even sure what to call this issue (reminds me of the good
'ol IE peekaboo bug). When you load the edit_page page, the title label
(the one that says “Page Title”) is not shown. Try to select the text
or maybe scroll just the right way, and it suddenly appears.
The 2nd problem is all IE but is also easy to fix (one added line). The
first one is a bigger change (actually it looks like the main.css could
use some spring cleaning).
So, I’d be happy to contribute here but I don’t want to duplicate work
that is maybe already being done. I also don’t want to spend a lot of
time only to learn that something like the facets branch is going to
obliterate my work.
Let me know how/if you want some help here.
