Change CSS in Activity Filter Drop-Down Select Box to Account for text width

Description

Seems like there is a problem with the width of the Filter Drop Down Box being too small anywhere there is a chance to filter activity-stream information.

For instance, on the Buddypress site, if you go to any group and choose set the filter to "Show New Group Members" you will see the words crush into the drop down arrow...

Looks like this can be changed easily in the default.css by changing the max-width: of the div.item-list-tabs ul li.last select TO { max-width: 220px;

However, this pushes it over to the right a little...

  • Milestone changed from 1.2.6 to 1.3

Probably needs more review later. This could change depending on language, features installed, etc...

Bumping to 1.3 for a better look later.

As jjj says, we can't really predict with any certainty how this is going to work in other languages, as well as the items that plugins add to the filter list. And because the filter is in an li element, you have to have some kind of max-width to make sure that in doesn't mess with the rest of the items on the line. (The filter on buddypress.org does not appear in an li element, but that's because of a child theme.)

As long as the bp-default width has enough room to contain the most common strings from the languages we are conversant in, I think the best we can do is to ask site owners to use a child theme to make the box wider when necessary.
