#50026 new enhancement

Twenty Twenty: Full height with short content

Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

With the twentytwenty theme, when the height of the content in a page does not fill up the entire viewport, the page ends up with extra trailing whitespace.

If we treat the <body> as a flex box the page will always be filled:

body {
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: column;
  min-height: 100vh;

main#site-content {
  flex: 1

  • Keywords has-patch 2nd-opinion added

As part of the proposal to retire default themes, Twenty Twenty might not have any more enhancements soon.

If this change might be worth making, I made a patch with the suggested flex styles.

I actually think this might be a useful enhancement to get in as for me seems to fall on the line between something feels wrong to end user and is just in addition (a pure enhancement). I am going to add this to the next milestone to recommend, but I would like to also see if @sabernhardt you agree with me or counter this considering it's your patch.

  • Keywords needs-testing added; 2nd-opinion removed

We have made enhancements to older themes since the retirement proposal, so that should not hold back this ticket.

Thank you @sabernhardt in this case then I am going to flag this for commit so we can get this in.

  • Keywords needs-refresh added; has-patch commit removed

@sabernhardt in testing this it seems that this patch might need a little more work, the flex styles do help however when logged in the admin bar doesn't get taken into account so a scroll is added. This doesn't appear when logged out. You can see this in the attached image on Safari latest version.

For now, going to remove commit keyword as this needs to have more testing and add it needs a refresh to take into account this scroll.

Twenty Twenty has a screen-height class to make an element full-height in the Cover template. The styles for both of these could work together.

However, note that the min-height of 100vh can make those elements too tall on mobile screens (#48837), and switching to `height: 100%` could be too short on desktop screens.
