Media info/tool links positioning inconsistent depending on presence of description
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Go to and click on the sunrise image -- you'll see that at the bottom of the lightbox a description appears on the left, and some info & links on the right.

But if you click on the aerial view of San Francisco, there's no description, and the info & links appear on the *left* instead of the right.

I would expect the links to be consistently positioned on the right.

Thanks, Brion.

You are correct, the links in the lower right hand side of the light box should always remain in the same place.

The fact that there is no description for that file should not change the layout of Media Viewer. Instead, it should simply say 'No description.', as requested in a related bug.

Our designer Pau Giner is working on a new layout that might make things less strange if a description is missing, too short or too long.

I believe this got fixed when we made the description div scrollable and fixed its positioning (as well as that of the metadata list element), so we should be better now. Reopen if not.

The div is display:none-ed when empty, so this still happens.

Change 96465 had a related patch set uploaded by Gergő Tisza:
Preserve space for the description even if it is not present

Change 96465 merged by jenkins-bot:
Preserve space for the description even if it is not present

Patch was merged a while ago - is there more work left to do here (if yes: please reset the bug report status to NEW or ASSIGNED), or can you close this ticket as RESOLVED FIXED?

Fixed. We have placeholder text now when there is no description.
