Almost all of this text comes from this previously closed and deleted bug report. That bug was fixed, but now it’s come back!

Looking at a question, I noticed that the “Ask Question” button by the title has been pushed up a long way:

“Ask Question” in the wrong place

How it used to look, for comparison:

“Ask Question” in the right place

This seems to be caused by an overcorrection with a fix to Weird, squished spacing with "Ask Question" on questions with responsive mobile.

This is by design. With the right question title the columns side by side is preferred. But! There are many question titles that don't look great, especially at 320px, a breakpoint we support. This doesn't look that bad, but can be improved.


Of the following possibilities, we went with C.

    The old design worked well, except for with the newly-moved stats. Could it go back to that, putting the stats right under the title, maybe? Thanks for the fast response! Aug 31, 2019 at 0:48
  • why not use float:right for the button and no float for the title? The text would wrap around the button.

  • Yep, that’s another solution. We’ve got a templating issue that prevents us from doing it easily, but I’d like to try this as well. Sep 2, 2019 at 1:04
