Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

On the Bicycles Blog I've noticed that the field for entering your post extends under the "publish" and "categories" fields. Have emptied my cache and reloaded, and the problem persists.


(You can see where the placeholder text extends under the fields on the right, blocking visibility of much text.)

Is anyone else seeing this? I've confirmed the problem on Chrome, Firefox, and Safari on my Mac.

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for people who build and repair bicycles, people who train cycling, or commute on bicycles.

@nhinkle, are you sure this is limited to the Bicycles' blog? (I would have guessed this was migrated to MSO because all blogs use the same software?) – Arjan Dec 26 '11 at 8:53
@Arjan they all do run the same software, but each has a distinct design. I'm an admin for the Super User Blog and the problem doesn't appear there. I checked on the Bicycles Blog and it was a problem there. As of about a month ago, the SU Blog runs on the same server/WP instance as all the other site blogs. – nhinkle Dec 26 '11 at 15:16
I checked on SFF and the problem exists there as well. – Neil Fein Dec 26 '11 at 18:52
The problem still exists on Bicycles and SFF. – Neil Fein Jan 4 '12 at 19:00
CLearly this is not a priority. If SE wants its community blogs to do well, they need to be aware that serious usability problems like this will hamper participation. Anyone there? Hello? – Neil Fein Jan 16 '12 at 1:59

This appears to have been caused by the Wordpress 3.3.0 update. I have updated the network to 3.3.1 and we are no longer seeing this issue.
