DFW v2: sometimes the right sidebar doesn't fade out in IE

Reported by: azaozz's profile azaozz Owned by: azaozz's profile azaozz

Happens in all IE versions. Caused by a knows bug where elements with position != static don't inherit opacity from a parent with position: static.

Generally there are two ways to fix this:

  • Set position: relative on the parent element (.postbox-container).
  • Apply the opacity to the child elements.

It seems better to use the second option as the first interferes a bit with jQuery calculating offset().top and needs adjustments in editor-expand.js.

Maybe only do this for IE? And leave a comment/ticket number there so we know why in the future?

Yeah, was thinking to change the selectors in IE only but that makes it "messier". We will have to set the transition on the parent element (for non-IE), then negate it which is not ideal. Having different selectors in different browsers might bring inconsistencies in the future.

Is there a downside to leaving the child selectors in for all browsers? It’s not a huge number of child elements...

#7 @azaozz

No downside. By default there is only one child in each .postbox-container. However there are couple of actions that can be used to output other elements, hence the .postbox-container > * selector.
