remove unneccessary CSS that leads to large margins on ooui special pages
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We have some CSS styling for the old Wikibase special pages. With the move to ooui this special CSS leads to orverly large margins in the forms. We should remove that CSS.

I notice this issue yesterday...

ooui adds margin-top for each field:

margin-top: 1.171875em;

we also use wb-input css class which adds margin-bottom:

margin-bottom: 1em;

It might be work to remove the margin-bottom, if that's no longer needed anywhere or move that to a separate css class that is only used in places where it still needed

We should remove this margin. I don't believe it is needed any more. Everything switched to OOUI. If it is still needed somewhere we should fix these places later with much more specific CSS, not by simply adding a margin to a selector as generic as wb-input.

Change 341487 had a related patch set uploaded (by aude):
[mediawiki/extensions/Wikibase] Remove excess bottom margin for special page input fields

thiemowmde assigned this task to aude.
thiemowmde moved this task from incoming to in progress on the Wikidata board.

[mediawiki/extensions/Wikibase] Remove excess bottom margin for special page input fields

I chose to keep .wb-input in the patches for T48248 to avoid changing the layout too much but now I'm realizing that the huge wasted space was actually its fault...
