"PHP Update Required" dashboard box title is right-aligned

As noted by @TimothyBlynJacobs on Slack, the "PHP Update Required" title is now right-aligned.

This is a regression in trunk, see the screenshots.


  • The "Learn more" button has some extra bottom padding, due to removing !important from here in [48129]:
    .postbox .inside > p:last-child,
    .rss-widget ul li:last-child {
        margin-bottom: 1px !important;
  • The vertical alignment on that button looks off.

Instead of adding more styles, I'd rather restore the removed !important piece here, since it seems that could also affect other things.

Could we track down the commit that made the title right-aligned?

The alignment is from [48373], using CSS flexbox on the heading for edit-box links.

.postbox-header .hndle {
	flex-grow: 1;
	/* Handle the alignment for the configurable dashboard widgets "Configure" edit-box link. */
	display: flex;
	justify-content: space-between;
	align-items: center;
