Build the whole header with flexbox.

Nice. Oh how I love flexbox. I’ll start dropping subliminal hints into Phil’s inbox every now and again :-)

Re: Feedback to: Textpattern CMS 4.6.0 beta 2 released

Hi. If you can provide a flexbox code example for the header area then I’m all for reverting the view site back to site name. The float version was too prone to layout breakage hence why I reluctantly changed it.

We use flexbox on other parts of the layout anyway, so a bit more will be fine. I still sometimes have trouble getting my head around the various flexbox rules. This could still be slipped into 4.6.0 release I think.

Regarding max-width, there already is. I made it quite large as I don’t want to force a restriction on users – you can always make your browser window smaller to lessen the article write width. I thought I’d done s good compromise between wide screens and article write box, but it seems everyone has their preference.

I’ll update demo site today.

Apologies for radio silence, broke two bones in my hand and have been out of action for weeks.

FYI I have now rebuilt the header with flexbox and reinstated the site name. I want to reverse the flow for RTL layout but will do that tomorrow.

@gaekwad

Ouch! Hope you are on the mend now.

I too have multiple tabs open for multiple sites and now have to rely on the tab bar.

I was thinking about this earlier. Per-site admin-side CSS overrides could be used to change the admin colour scheme (yellow for live, grey for dev, something else for staging, etc), and throwing a tiled background image would help identify the domain/site/status.

There’s also scope for other admin themes outside of Phil’s Hive stuff, perhaps with some cleverness involving the production status and URL to determine the colours. Hive is great (I really love it, and I’m a die-hard Classic boy), but it’s not ever going to please everyone.

PS: beta 2 looking and playing great – big thanks from me.
