#42081 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

Some widget controls are too wide for their container

Focuses: ui, administration Cc:


When using the Appearance -> Widgets screen, the controls for the Custom HTML, RSS, and Text widgets are too wide for the container, and overflow to the left.

This only happens when a theme is in use which has more than one widget area and therefore causes two columns of widget areas to appear on the Widgets screen.

All three widgets are being given a left margin of -28px at runtime.

All the other default widgets are fine, and all widgets are fine when used in the Widgets panel in the Customizer.

The issue has been present since the introduction of the MP6 admin design in 3.8.
