Build ID: 20111019081014

Steps to reproduce:

Create a new etherpad or open an existing one.
Resize the browser window so that it is narrower than the etherpad.



Actual results:

A horizontal scroll bar appears at the bottom of the screen, but it does not allow scrolling far enough to see the left edge of the pad.

Note that this problem breaks htmlpad by making it impossible to edit code even with a full screen browser window.

Expected results:

The scroll bar should enable scrolling to the left edge of the etherpad.

At a glance I'd say this is directly related to this upstream issue:

Since there currently is no web dev assigned to Etherpad, I'll take this for now. In the near future we'll probably be setting up a staging instance of Etherpad to deal with strange things like this.

For the record, I believe this is the relevant CSS:

There actually are some webdev resources for Etherpad now, although mainly focused on BrowserID. However, there may be some time available to look into fixing this. It looks like a relatively simple CSS issue, although I'm not sure what a better solution to the problem at hand really is. A more seasoned web dev should be able to sort this out faster than I can.

Comment 3

6 years ago is actually completely broken at the moment, possibly because it insists on reaching etherpad via http://, and etherpad enforces a redirect to https://. In any case I can't even start editing, it just loops on the "create this pad" button/page.

Fortunately bug 698034 is relevant here. This might be solvable by combined tweaking of htmlpad and etherpad.
Depends on: 698034

This component is no longer being tracked and its bugs are being closed and moved to the Websites Graveayard product.
