Link-manager styles bug

#1 @SergeyBiryukov

Hi there, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the ticket.

For some context, Link Manager is deprecated in core since WordPress 3.5:

  • #21307 hides it in the UI for newer installs and requires the Link Manager plugin to re-enable.
  • #22994 removes it from import options.
  • #42131 proposes to remove it completely, though closed as maybelater for now.

That said, I have no objections to fixing the padding if it doesn't require too much effort.

I still have a few sites that use Link Manager and the PR LGTM, so I'd say this should be fixed...since the reason it currently looks the way it does is because of other WP admin CSS changes since Link Manager was depreciated. The changes in the PR are confined to the Links screen(s), so I don't think there is any downside.

  • Milestone changed from Future Release to 5.7

Thanks for the PR @grzim! The styles look good on the Add New Link page, but the .inside top margin is still only 6 pixels on the Edit Link page instead of 12.

Here are a few suggestions:

  1. Include .link-php #poststuff .inside for the override (or else add a new class to the first div within the form element on both pages).
  2. Move this style override after #poststuff .inside.
  3. Only specify the top margin for the .link-php and .link-add-php styles.
  4. Simplify the existing shorthand for #poststuff .inside.
#poststuff .inside {
	margin: 6px 0 0;

.link-php #poststuff .inside,
.link-add-php #poststuff .inside {
	margin-top: 12px;
