Fix for poor sidebar CSS in Kubrick theme

Reported by: chrisjean's profile chrisjean Owned by: iandstewart's profile iandstewart
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.9
Component: Bundled Theme Keywords: has-patch

Rather than using a float to push the sidebar alongside the content area, Kubrick floats the content area and then uses a left-margin of 545 pixels to shove the sidebar over. This causes float and clear CSS rules to produce very odd results in the sidebar.

The attached patch changes the #sidebar left-margin from 545px to 50px and adds "float: left".

A site running the patched version of Kubrick has been tested in IE 6-8 and the latest versions of Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Safari. All the browsers rendered the sidebar in the same position as before the patch with the exception of also fixing the float/clear problem.

I'm wary that this may have unexpected results. Punting to 3.0 where a new theme should make me more willing to mess with Kubrick.

With 2010 coming in 3.0 and kubrick being removed as per #10654 , I think it's safe to close this as won't fix.

Kubrick needs to continue to be updated to correct bugs and/or update for new usage.

For now, I think kubrick bugs belong on trac still
