Sitefinity 4.4 Documents & Files layout problem

  • Sitefinity 4.4 Documents & Files layout problem
  • 332771_Screenshot.png
    We have many files and when viewing that page in a smaller screen it looks really bad because of the style. I'm not sure if its a bug or a layout issue that we've caused.
    See the attached screenshot:
  • Oscar,
    You need to have spaces in your document titles. Use spaces where the underscore is, that will wrap the titles nicely and fix the issue. I think Telerik are aware of this issue but gave it a very low priority. I remember reporting it about a year ago. Just use spaces in your document titles, that will fix it for you.

  • Hello Oscar,

    I have logged this into PITS. You can track its progress in PITS.

    Thank you for letting us know.

  • I voted this issue up in PITS. I also added the mention of the sort order change. 

    Note that as mentioned in PITS, the dates overlapping issue on the right is significant and separate from the title overlapping issue. Adding spaces to your document name fixes the title overlapping issue but not the date overlapping issue. 
  • Hi,

    Could you supply the steps you did to create the date overlapping? I wasn't able to recreate the dates overlapping. I created a document name "Tulips_File_File_File_File_File_File_File_File_File_File_File_File" and the dates did not overlap. Which version are you running off of? I tested the document name with 4.4 2117.

    Please let us know if we run into anymore issue.

    Kind regards,

  • Thanks for the response Grace.

    Sitefinity version is 4.4.2117.0. I'm not sure what steps you can take to reproduce but I attached a screenshot of what I'm seeing that may help. I'm working on the upgrade from 4.0 to 4.4 which is when we found the problem with the dates. It might be a combination of having long document titles, owner names and deeply-nested library names. 

    The issue is reproducible in IE8, IE8 compatibility view, Chrome 17 and Firefox 10. When I put IE8 in IE7 mode, the formatting is still a little crooked but there is no overlapping and it's completely readable. It looks like the only difference in this view is that the "Library / Categories / Tags" column wraps (see second screenshot). The wrapping of that column seems significant and might be the issue right there. 
  • Hi,

    I am still unable to reproduce the issue with the dates overlapping. I am testing with Firefox 10.0.2 and I have a very long file name with spaces, library name and my owner name is longer and wasn't able to get the dates to overlap in the Filter Documents & Files column.

    Is there any other information you can think of to reproduce the issue?

    Please let me know.

  • Sorry Grace, not sure if there's much more info I can give you. 

    Here's some info about the documents listed on my particular setup...

    Longest doc title = 117 chars including spaces
    Longest list of categories = 3 categories with 64 total chars with spaces
    Longest library name = 48 chars with spaces 
    Longest owner name = 17 chars with spaces

    Not sure if that helps but feel free to give me ideas on what else you may need. 
  • I am having this exact issue, it only occurs on screens with low resolution, 1280px and lower.

    Can you advise if there is a fix on the way, we are using Sitefinnity 4.4.

    Thanks
    Jen
  • I am able to reproduce this in IE AND in Chrome...  If you take your browser and minimize it horizontally, you can see the overlap.  Not all our clients have wide screens as I do and this happens to them often.  Very annoying problem and should be fixed.
  • I did find that if you remove (in firefbug) the "white-space:nowrap" from the CSS of 
    .RadGrid_Sitefinity .rgHeader, .RadGrid_Sitefinity thead .rgHeader, .RadGrid_Sitefinity thead th, .k-grid .k-grid-header th.k-header 
    It will then wrap the grid columns and minimize the overlap.

    Where would be the best place to do this or can it be done?
  • I have the same problem. Any solution for this? (In 5.1 version, the problem is solved.)
    Thanks!
