Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMMONSSITE-78) Alignment Issues on Commons Welcome Page
Date Wed, 19 Feb 2014 21:18:22 GMT


Bernd Eckenfels commented on COMMONSSITE-78:

I had the exactly same symptoms (most prominently the menu which starts way down the page).
After hitting reload it was fixed.

The server correctly sents (and most likely honors) IfModifiedSince+IfNoneMatch:etag. So I
think the problem was that the browser chose to not actually check if the files have been
recent. This could be because there is no cache control header but a lastmodified header (so
if the browser learns the css hasnt changed in years it will not refresh it often).

Besides setting a cache management header or accepting the problem another option would be
to add a "generation" string into the static resources path to make those layout changes more

issues regarding the alignment of some page items:

of beeing centered vertically like the other items within the navigation bar.
> #2: The left-hand side menu is centered vertically which makes it somehow invisible.
The user has to scroll down on larger pages such as the above mentioned start page.
