The RedHanded+Safari "Yep or Nope?" Game #

by why in -h

I’ve been getting reports for the last week or so about problems in Safari. The right column is weaving into-around-behind the main blog content.

I have no Mac anywhere at all. So, we’re going to play a little game.

If you have Safari, you get to say “nope” until I get it right.

Then, you get to say “yep.”

And if you don’t have Safari: eh, aren’t there plenty of other places you can talk around here??

I was meaning to email you on this since I noticed it. However I figured as a web developer I should really track the bug down and email a fix, and not just complain. Anyways the sidebar is fine on the Redcloth 3 article, but not this one or the homepage.

nope. The right sidebar never overlaps main blog content for me, even when I resize the window to make it smaller or larger. I’m using verson 1.2.4 (v125.12).

Looks good in OmniWeb 5.1 as well (which sits on top of Safari’s rendering engine).

well this isn’t very fun. I thought we’d be doing this well into next week with a climactic finale that no one saw coming.

I hate that I invented this stupid game.

nope on the main page, but entering this comment everything looks ok.

the main page is behaving now. i meant to look through the css to see what was going on. what was it, why?

said on 18 Feb 2005 at 23:42

A “Yep” here! Looks fine to me.

It was broke for me before you started this game. And now it isn’t. So either you did something to fix it or you embarrassed it by making it a game.

Er… Yep!

A southern Yep ( Yup)... Whatever you did is working fine now. It was annoying before with the sidebar and the left content overflowing each other. Thanks, the CSS is working great now.

yep, works great now. Can you tell us all how you fixed it?

Who won?

Love, Manfrad. Love won.

Oh, okay, so I forgot to say what the moral of the game was. And that was wrong of a host to do.

The main content consists of a fixed-width div named #content. Inside #content, two divs called #sidebar and #blog. Previously, I was floating #content to the left and #sidebar to the right. That worked in most current browsers, save Safari.

Now I am floating #blog left and floating #sidebar right. Simple enough. I believe it would have worked as well to put a margin-left on #sidebar which was as wide as #blog and only float #blog left. But whatever.
