Description (last modified by poena)

I'm sure you've probably heard this from thousands of folks already, since it's an incredibly obvious bug, but the Post/Block choice in the upper right is all screwed up now. This has worked perfectly for a decade, but the latest 'upgrade' wrecked it.

Link removed.

Hi @timprophet and welcome to WordPress Trac.

Please refrain from using this type of language. The Trac ticket system is public and open for everyone to view and interact with, please keep the language family friendly.

Can you include more details about your installation and step-by-step instructions for how to reproduce the issue?

I tested the panel in the block editor using WordPress 6.5 in Safari, Firefox and Chrome on macOS, but I was unable to reproduce the problem with the positioning of the panel.

Does the problem still happen if you disable all plugins and use a bundled theme like Twenty Twenty-Four? I am asking because it helps to exclude theme and plugin conflicts.

And are there any JavaScript errors in the browser developer tools console?

I'm not going to disable 34 plugins and the theme to see if it works. I'm sure a totally fresh installation with absolutely nothing on it will look fine, but that's not practical. The fact is that I've used this for many, many years, and only until the most recent upgrade did this right panel get wrecked. It isn't me; it's them. I am highly confident many people are having this same issue. I'm able to work around it just by carefully clicking on the poorly-formatted links, but it's still annoying.

  • Component changed from General to Editor

The markup changed in GB58041, and one of your plugins might need to update styles accordingly.

One way to help determine what styles are making the buttons display vertically is by deactivating each plugin one-by-one. A more technical way is using the browser inspector on those button elements and the div immediately above it.
