Alignment and text flow issues

Jump to: navigation, search

You may have seen on your Test page, we have found and fixed a problem that was interfering with text flow around images. If your problems of alignment are still not solved, please let us know

Much better now, yes. Thanks!

Two things, though:

1) If I have headers, these will also be 'floated' around the picture. I'd expect the header to break flow around, but I recognize that this is a question of definition. Optimal would be way to control it.

2) Right alignment of text using a table still doesn't work. (It used to with the old theme)

I've modified my test page to show both these cases.

In chihuahua such things are controlled by classes, and for a while we will be finding "corner cases" such as this that need addressing. If possible, please join #kde-www during the late afternoon or early evening UTC, when Pipesmoker is usually around. He will want to see this through :-)

Sorry, must have forgotten to save my changes to the test page so I did them again, and made sure to save!

About #kde-www, I often have problems spending time on this during evenings, but I'll see what I can do.

I don't understand number 2). Are you writing about floating text around images? Or do you miss the option align="right" in tables?

> Or do you miss the option align="right" in tables? Yes, this is what I meant. And I can see it works now! Thanks.

About 1) The problem is, that the sidebar is made with floats. So if headings break the float it will be put to the bottom underneath the siedbar.

You can control float breaking with <br style="clear:left" /> or <br style="clear:right" />, but it will cause the described problem. It depends on wether the the sidebar is on the left or on the right.

Ah, yes see what you mean. So float breaking isn't really usable in this situation. I would have been nice if the sidebar and the content was separated in the sense that content layout never affected sidebar layout.
