When you hover over required tags on meta sites that have said tags styled similarly to the one below, they now lose a pixel from their top and bottom borders:

Hovered required tag

This is because a.post-tag:hover (which defines a one-pixel right and bottom border) is more specific than .required-tag:hover where the two-pixel border is defined. This causes the whole tag list to shift to the left while hovering.

I recently changed the CSS on all the sites to apply the :hover styles to <a> tags only (so they're not applied in the tag editor). Looks like I missed one spot here (and on meta.sf). Fixed, thanks! (next build yaddayadda)

  • Ah, seems that .post-text .required-tag:hover needs this treatment too (example)?

  • Ah yeah, thanks. Different issue, same problem. The tag stylings from pre-Jin-awesomeness days have some selector specificity issues.

  • The solution must be to create more Jin clones. Although then the bacon expense bill would be enormous.
