#27082 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Admin Interface hides Tag Input text on post.

Reported by: john-michael Owned by: nacin
Milestone: 3.8.2 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.8
Component: Posts, Post Types Keywords: has-patch commit fixed-major
Focuses: ui, administration Cc:


When creating or editing a post in the admin interface, the text in the tag input becomes invisible (cannot be seen) when the window is < 783 px wide. This is not happening in chrome (Chrome 32.0.1700.107) on Windows 7, but it does occur on Firefox (Firefox 27.0) on Windows 7.

Disabling either of the two css rules prevents the issue:

  1. height: 28px;
  2. padding: 25px 10px;


.search-box input[name="s"], #search-plugins input[name="s"], .tagsdiv .newtag {
    float: left;
    height: 28px;
    margin: 0px 4px 0px 0px;


@media screen and (max-width:782px){
    tagsdiv .newtag {
        width: 100%;
        padding: 25px 10px;
        margin-bottom: 15px;

I think we can drop the padding and add height: auto instead. Otherwise the input looks huge, even larger than the title. See 27082.patch and before/after screenshot 27082.png.
