    Channel description text

    I have noticed that build 11926 has a new way of displaying a channels description (it looks a little different). I have also noticed a new behavior, which I do not like too much. I have a video which displays why.

    In both builds, when a channels description has a lot of text it will make sure that the text fits (no need for a horizontal scroll bar to read text).

    Now say a channel has a description with a lot of text and an image that is, for example, 468x60. In build 11315, the text will remain fit so that you don't need a scroll bar to read the text, however when you get to the image that is too long you will need to scroll a little bit. In build 11926 a channel has a long description, the text is fit properly. Now add an image. The text is no longer able to be read without having to scroll. Hopefully the video will show a bit more what I am trying to explain :-P

    To see for yourself, click on channel English Talk - 1 - and look at its description with 11315, then look at it with 11926. Maybe this is desired? Or bug? I don't know.

    I understand your problem. But, I don't see it with my design setup.

    Style: Plastique
    Theme: bluesky

    You're correct screech, I was using Plastique already, then switched theme switched to bluesky and this no longer occurs.

    More details: I am using Windows Vista and my theme is 'System default'.

    If you compare the channelinfo.tpl files between the bluesky and default themes you should be able to use that towards making a new custom theme that is mostly like default but with tweaks as needed to act like bluesky.

    Something the devs may consider is when they are doing to update the layout of the default is to copy the old layout to a new theme named something like "Pre-beta23 Default" or something so that those that like the old setup can easily switch to the older layout.
