Thanks, should be fixed in 4.6.1. I guess, nobody has ever navigated these panes by keyboard before. :-)

To be honest, it is a bit of a masochistic exercise… (still, easier than to use that bizarrely functioning trapped on the windows laptop happen to have at hand).
Thanks for fixing. Works like it should now!

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.6.0 released

Hello,

Just a observation about preferences pages. When using a big screen, you don’t find that the space between labels and fields are too big ? you may really attention to link the right label at the right field.

@sacripant

It’s a bit of a compromise yes, but the 2 column grid span (as opposed to the 3 column span we use now) is too squashed in my opinion. I personally don’t find the longer width hard to track.

I certainly don’t disagree with you (and others, Ruud amongst them have noted the same) – even though I use a narrower window, and I have Hive ‘zoomed in’ in my browser (larger text size).

I have this snippet in my custom.css file (for who I use Hive):

.txp-prefs-group { max-width: 50em; } /* adjust to taste */

I can put that rule into the code if you all find it too wide right now. Let me know ASAP as we want to get 4.6.1 out in next few days.

I’ve remade an interpretation of the Classic admin theme in latest 4.7.0-dev and 4.6.1-dev branches. Give it a spin if you want.

Awesome to have it back. Strangely enough though after getting used to Hive of lately it really looks dated. Especially when it comes to something like Page Templates – the textarea seems so narrow now compared to Hive.

Yes, good solution.
Personnally I just fix a flex-basis and remove flex-grow for label

.txp-prefs-group .txp-form-field-label { flex: 0 1 20em; }

and add a :hover effect on form-field for better usability

.txp-prefs-group .txp-form-field:hover { 
    background-color: #F7F7F7; 
    box-shadow: 0 0 0 5px #F7F7F7;;
}

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.6.0 released

OK, I’ve put an upper limit on the pref group widths now to make it more readable. Thanks all!

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.6.0 released

I just want to say that I love the way the text field in the write tab expands to fit the length of what it is written. I always felt that the traditional two vertical scroll bars (browser and text field) were messy and confusing whenever I needed to edit things quickly.

It’s the little things that make our lives easier. Thanks!

Could we have the same functionality for the presentation fields?
