Fix Admin Layout When Displaying Errors

Reported by: sunnyratilal Owned by:
Milestone: Awaiting Review Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.2
Component: Administration Keywords: needs-patch
Focuses: ui, administration Cc:


Whenever a PHP error is displayed in the backend, it causes WordPress layout to screw up on the options pages by enlarging the font size and pushing the footer up to the bottom of the viewport so that it's not at the bottom of the page, instead, the bottom of the screen up so when you scroll to the bottom of the page, it's actually 3/4 way or 1/2 way up the page.

This behaviour/appearance is really detrimental to developers trying to debug things in environments where they have no choice but to display errors in the browser.

The sticky/folding sidebar behaviour might make this more difficult, but it would be great to not cover up the left hand portion of anything output outside of the #wpcontent div.

Who wants to tackle this?
