#7928 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Wrong offset for @mentions container for devices <= 400px

Reported by: backpackersunion's profile BackpackersUnion Owned by: boonebgorges's profile boonebgorges
Milestone: 4.0 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.0.0
Component: Activity Keywords: has-patch


When using @Username (i.e. Mentions) on a mobile device (or emulator), it appears a recent BP update (BP 2.9 -> 3.1) added some CSS/JS code that moved the mentions list off screen and out of view of the user.

To reproduce, use a mobile device or mobile emulator and try @mentioning a friend in the "What's New" text box or in a Comment. You should see the opaque background of the Mentions area (.atwho-view) but no friends or users listed.

The problem seems to be caused by CSS/JS that is effecting .atwho-view. Before the update the selector was getting the style "top: 107px;" applied, after the update the same style is "top: -5026px;".

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 3.2.0
  • Version set to 3.0.0

Confirmed when emulating iPhone 6/7/8 in Chrome, basically any width <= 400px.

I have a tentative fix that removes the height:100% CSS rule, which fixes things somewhat.

@BackpackersUnion - Can you test?

The following might also be a better fix for small-width screens:

  • Summary changed from Bug - Mentions (Updating from BP 2.9 -> 3.1) to Wrong offset for @mentions container for devices <= 400px

#3 @DJPaul

  • Milestone changed from 3.2.0 to 4.0

Moving to 4.0.0 because we could do with more testing of this patch and deciding if updating at.js is more appropriate.

#4 @boonebgorges

I'm going to go with the smaller CSS fix for now. We should address updating at.js for the next release, as there may be compatibility breaks.
