  • Tags list too wide under New Topics

    Click New Topics in the menu
    Click Tags dropdown
    Click "You can also choose from the popular tags"

    The Tag list is rendered exceeding the boundaries of the page without any word-wrap or width constraint.

    This happens if there are many tags on the site (on vB, there are not many tags and the tags are rendered within the page width).

    This site has 10,295 individual words being used as tags on its posts at this time.

    Tags Drop down? Clicking on "Tags +" in the New Topic editor should open a dialog box to enter tags. Can you provide a screenshot of what you mean?

    This is what the interface to Add Tags should look like:

      Your popup screenshot is for creating / editing a topic / post.

      I was referring to search menu (Forums > New Topics > drop down Tags > click Popular Tags) - this gives a long horizontal list of existing tags.

        That interface has the same problem on this site. It just isn't as apparent since a break between words appears at the right time. Seems to be a bug in the software. The problem has probably existed since 5.0.0 since tags aren't used by many customers. It would need a bug report.

          I'd probably suggest eliminating the field altogether since it suggests tags once the first few characters are typed.

            That list is hidden by default. Probably part of the formatting problem since it would most likely be retrieved from the server when requested.
