New issue 2865 by stem...@gmail.com: Long group names break the dashboard
What version are you running?
What's the URL of the page containing the problem?
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Be part of a team with a long name (e.g. Meta_Syntactic_Variable_Names)
2. Navigate to the dashboard
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I expect to see a sidebar and dashboard, as usual. Instead the main
dashboard overlaps the sidebar and is positioned below the last element in
the sidebar. For someone who is in many teams this can put the main
dashboard element below the fold (not pictured here).
What operating system are you using? What browser?
E.g. OS X 10.7.5, Google Chrome 24.0.1312.52.
I have reproduced with a variety of OS and browser combinations. The
problem is universal so far.
Please provide any additional information below.
This boils down to the dashboard CSS, I think. There is a fixed-width
(18em) offset for the #dashboard-main div, which is not long enough for
some team names.
Aside: Presenting a team's display name instead of the id allows team names
with spaces to wrap, which helps in some cases.
