Double underlines and bad Dashboard spacing.

I swear I've seen other tickets to this effect, but I can't seem to find 'em at the moment.

Are we seriously going with double underlines in the admin (ala this screencap)? To describe them as "one step short of the accursed BLINK tag" would be kind. Also, the underlines in the buttons look pretty out of place and ganky.

Additionally, the "Other WordPress News" dashboard section is consistently screwed up on Gecko-based browsers -- the actual source of the Dashboard news item is clipped by the bottom of the bounding boxes (cf. this shot for what I mean).

Trying to figure out the root causes behind them as we speak.

Bad spacing.

The fix for #6113 needs to be extended to the dashboard.

How specific do you want the fixes? Should I remove underlines from all links on the dashboard?

#4 @zamoose

Setting #wpbody a { text-decoration: none;} obviously does the trick, but is it overbroad?

#5 @zamoose

Does the trick for double underlines, that is.

div#rightnow a{ border-bottom: 0px; } does the trick for the second underlines in the Right Now section.

Unsure as to whether these changes belong in global.css or wp-admin.css.

Holy crow, this CSS is making me want to pull my hair out. It's confusing the everloving crap out of Firebug, so much so that it can't seem to tell me the proper cascade for any of the elements.

It may be a 2.5.1 or even a 2.6 goal, but it's in need of some serious optimization.

Answered my own question. Ought to go in source:/trunk/wp-admin/css/dashboard.css , oughtn't it?

Bumping #dashboard_secondary div.dashboard-widget-content ul li to 7em; instead of 6em; makes the boxes happy but incurs a scroll bar on the total div. Kicking .dashboard-widget up to 30em; compensates. This significantly lengthens the entire dashboard, as all rows of widgets are now 3em larger.

[7178] looks like it might have fixed the double underlining.

#10 @zamoose

Yes, double underlines gone. Spacing error still exists.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

I believe that several of the latest rounds of CSS updates have fixed this issue definitively. I'm going to close this one out.
