Simplespace. Block title text overlapping icon
 

Hi everyone,

I recently upgraded to Moodle 2.4 and I'm using Simplespace theme. I can't prevent the title of blocks overlapping the icons of the block. I have found others with the same issue but I haven't found any solution. Can anybody help me?

Thanks

Is this the same in all browsers (and latest browsers). I would raise a bug in the Moodle Tracker (tracker.moodle.org) if you are sure you have the latest versions of everything.

Hi Howard,

Thanks a million for your answer.

I'm using Windows Xp with IExplorer 8 and Chrome and the issue is the same with both of them. I have tried it on a laptop with windows 7 and IExplorer 9 and Chrome with the same result.

Thanks for your idea but I can't believe that Simplespace is being used without anybody reporting a "bug" like this. I'll wait for more answers first.

Well.. do you have any optional plugins in use? I would disable those temporarily as well.

Simplespace won't have had the level of exposure a core theme has so it might have trouble on certain platforms or even interactions with certain optional plugins.

Hi Howard,

Brian Peat solved the problem doing the following:

In the site administration area, under appearance, is an option called Additional HTML. There's a block there labeled Within Head.

In that box put this:

<style>
.block .header h2 {
padding: 0 0 0 1.7em;
}
</style>

that will load the style in the header of every page and shift your icons over for you (or it should).

thanks!

I just spent 3 hours trying to figure this out. Note to self: Search for all problems in Moodle.org first!!! I just pasted the above style into the core.css stylesheet in the Simple Space theme and it worked. I was so happy I felt it deserved me posting a thankyou!
