#17209 new defect (bug)

Category list table breaks when custom post type label is too long

Registered a post type which has a longer label than "posts" (called "resources"). List table listing the categories for that post type breaks slightly when a name is over a certain length. Picture attached.

Offending CSS is setting a 10% width to that column.

I can provide a patch. Though since the number of posts is centered, the heading is left aligned. If that column is widened, should the title be centered as well (since left-aligned may look weird at one point)?

I propose we don't use the post type label there at all, as it's not accurate anyway. Just use 'Count' or some other fixed string.

Replacing the label with "Count" also wouldn't require any CSS changes. I can upload a patch later if we want to change it to that (or any other standardized word).

Fixed in [18875]? Rather than wrapping, it just gets hidden. Suggest closing, although there could possibly be a better option.

  • Keywords ui-feedback ux-feedback removed

[18875] was reverted, so not fixed there. However, I like the idea of "Count", given #14076/#14084.
