"New Cookbook" page broken?


#1

Hi,

Has anyone else noticed that the page [1] to create new cookbooks in
the community website is seemingly broken? It does not present a list
of categories, so you can not select one and thus it fails due to no
category specified.

Hi Peter,

You’re correct that the select box for categories does not appear on the page. This appears to be a bug. The select element is in fact there on the page, it is just being hidden by a CSS rule that got a bit overzealous. If you’d like an immediate workaround to this problem feel free to follow the directions below to disable the CSS rules with your browser’s development mode, otherwise we should be able to have a permanent fix deployed within the next day or so.

The offending CSS to disable is the following:

dk_fouc select {
position: relative;
top: 99999em;
visibility: hidden;
}

See the following screenshot for how to do this in Chrome: https://img.skitch.com/20120424-bayppf3r9h8s7he82rm9up81e3.jpg
