As the title says, a mod undeleting a comment adds a second top bar, adds a random second copy of the logo and top buttons in the middle of the page, pushes the comments to the bottom of the page, and adds some other graphical issues.

This occurs on both scifi and outdoors.

A picture says a thousand words:

Top of messed-up page

    Just tried it on Arqade, and I see the same thing. (Chrome on Windows) – Ash Oct 18 '17 at 2:39

    ---Let me test this.--- Oh yeah. That's weird. – Jon Ericson Oct 18 '17 at 2:52

    Wow. That's... amazing. A set of extensive page layout (in the ASP.NET Razor sense) changes went out a couple days back. My money's on that off-hand over the top bar redesign, but I'll ask around either way. :) – Adam Lear Oct 18 '17 at 2:55
  • I reproduce similar breakage when undeleting a comment on Stack Overflow. I did not see it yesterday, so I doubt the changes @Adam is thinking of are related if those "went out a couple days back". – Cody Gray Oct 18 '17 at 4:55
  • @CodyGray I misremembered - the change set I was thinking of went in on Friday, but it was only built to production late Monday UTC. I guess my memory just split the difference and settled on "a couple of days". – Adam Lear Oct 18 '17 at 5:33
  • I could swear the same thing happened on SU some time back. I run a unsupported browser though... ;p – Journeyman Geek Oct 18 '17 at 6:56
  • @JourneymanGeek nah, such break isn't any browser fault, it's the server sending whole document instead of just HTML chunk in some AJAX response. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Oct 18 '17 at 10:01
  • This happened to me yesterday on Mi Yodeya – Double AA Oct 18 '17 at 12:54

The fix is live now. My late-night theory was right - a spot got missed during Layout refactoring. :)
