Update padding construction in Monobook #content and #firstHeading to be more like Vector
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: a.d.bergi

Today the content has a padding-top of 0, while the firstheading gets a padding-top: .5em; (inherited from h1). Vector already has changed this to
div#content { padding-top: 1em; }
#firstHeading { padding-top: 0; }
which I suggest also for monobook. This would make any elements before the firstheading look alike in the various skins. It would notably affekt the central- or sitenotice, which often needs extra, skin-dependent css, mostly when there are absolutely positioned objects (coordinates etc.) at the top of the page.

This may refer to Bug 2013.

Also look at [[de:Wikipedia:Administratoren/Anfragen#centralNotice in MediaWiki:Monobook.css]].

Version: 1.17.x

I think this should be fixed separatly from Bug 2013, theres no dependence.
I just wanted to link it because it deals with Heading-font-size, too; but after a bit of mediation I'm now afraid I just misunderstood its request.

I see no problem with this patch, other than that it would break all the MediaWiki:Monobook.css pages with definitions for topicons and the likes. Not major, but would need good communication towards the community.

Bergi, can you respond to Derk-Jan's comment? Do you think we should avoid breaking those pages, or break those pages and communicate systematically with the community ahead of time?

It wouldn't really break them, just the topicons would be 1em below their current position. Surely, it needs to be communicated, but I think we should do it because the cleaner implementation makes custom css easier.
