#29867 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Z-index competition between #wpadminbar and Twenty Eleven header at small screen sizes

Reported by: ericlewis's profile ericlewis Owned by: azaozz's profile azaozz
Milestone: 4.1 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.8
Component: Toolbar Keywords: has-patch needs-testing
Focuses: ui Cc:


Z-index on #wpadminbar is 99999 for devices larger than 782px, but drops to 500 for narrower devices.

This leads to issues like in the screenshot I'll attach.

We should keep the z-index high here, no?

Also, there is no need for "left: 0 !important;" as it is already declared 0 in the first place.

I noticed this too.

  • Component changed from Administration to Toolbar
  • Keywords has-patch added
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 4.1

Other than "Toolbar Touchification", there is no comment saying why it is reduced to 500...

#3 @iseulde

  • Keywords needs-testing added

Tested this in iOS 8 and it works fine. But since this was added specifically for a smaller width and made !important, it probably needs some testing in other mobile browsers.

Unless someone knows why this was added?

Introduced in [26134].

See, and the relevant patch,

@tollmanz, do you remember why you added that z-index: 500 !important;?

Hi @avryl!

Apologies for missing the ping in this ticket. @johnbillion mentioned this comment and I am just looking into it now.

I did not write that code, but assisted in merging the MP6 plugin into core, hence the reason the blame points to me. I went ahead and looked through the Github history to try to figure out why the !important was added. I tracked it down to a commit by @iammattthomas. Unfortunately, the commit message does not give us much information, but I believe @iammattthomas would be the next person to ask about it.

As far as I remember the left: 0 !important; is override for an old fix for WebKit that did "strange" things to the first pixel on the screen on loading the page. Not needed any more as that fix was removed.

Don't see a need for the z-index: 500 !important; either, perhaps that was overriding something else that was removed.
