#26595 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

Update Available message is styled differently the the rest

Description (last modified by dd32)

The Update Available admin notice is sort of hanging out by itself and looks a little out of place. This might have the effect that more people update, but it does seem like something that is wrong.

What I'd personally expect:

  • Full width
  • .below-h2 like the others

Simplest way to trigger this is to install 3.8/trunk, change $wp_version to '3.7.1', and visit the Dashboard -> Updates page.

Just for some background on how we got here: my memory is a little rusty, but my recollection is that the position above H2s was already set pre-3.8. We decided to change the width to auto instead of 100% because after restyling notifications, it bumped up against the Screen Options and Help tabs in a way that felt weird. Shortening it seemed logical since it was just empty whitespace anyway. It could be argued that the update notification is a unique kind of alert and deserves to be styled even more differently, though.

  • Milestone Awaiting Review deleted
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

This style has grown on me. No movement in three months, and it shipped in 3.8, so closing.
