A cosmetic bug report for pattern skin

When I transferred my old webs to Dakar I notice that my left menu does not look good.

I miss a few pixels of space on between the left window edge an the first characters.

It is the

%INCLUDE{"%IF{"context can_login" then="%TWIKIWEB%.WebLeftBarLogin"}%" warn="off"}%
<div class="patternLeftBarContents">

that creates the space on the left. The minute you remove this first line the text belows moves all the way to the left.

I have tested with IE and Firefox



Also notice the * in front of Welcome. It should not be there

Look at the code. You cannot just remove
<div class="patternLeftBarContents">
from the left bar.

But you can safely remove the one line
%INCLUDE{"%IF{"context can_login" then="%TWIKIWEB%.WebLeftBarLogin"}%" warn="off"}%

AC I did not remove anything. I just upgraded from Cairo to Dakar moving the old webs to the new installation.

  • How will a normal user know that this HTML code has to be there? I am an experienced user and I did not figure it out. It worked fine on Cairo and now it is broken. The default Cairo WebLeftBar did not have that div tag.
  • This breaks compatibility with existing Cairo webs. When I upgrade to Dakar all the WebLeftBars in all our 20+ webs will be broken and people will have no clue how to fix it. This will be yet another manual process for me. This go against the TWiki:Codev.TWikiMíssion "Protect corporate investment (topic contents) from data corruption and incompatible changes - don't require the use of upgrade scripts (e.g. category to forms upgrade happened automatically)".

Please reconsider and help us admins to make upgrading to Dakar on several servers a little less a pain in the a**. I put the bug back to new.

Point taken. I had not considered existing WebLeftBars. I will have to look for another solution. AC
