[BUG] xampp index page lacks scrollbar

Postby matteosistisette » 06. February 2012 15:36

This is actually not a windows-specific issue but there's no general section in the forum.

The html index page that is shown by default when you connect to localhost/xampp has a broken layout. If the left panel with all the links exceeds the window's height, no scroll bar is shown either on the whole page nor on the div itself. This make the links on the bottom inaccessible on low resolution screens (even not so low).

This is actually not a bug, but a design issue.
XAMPP is not optimized for all screen sizes and resolutions.

But you can fix it very easy by yourself:
  • open \xampp\htdocs\xampp\index.php
  • find in lines 17 and 18
    Code: Select all
        <frameset cols="150,*" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0" border="0" borderwidth="0">
        <frame name="navi" src="navi.php" scrolling=no>
  • replace the lines with
    Code: Select all
        <frameset cols="165,*" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0" border="0" borderwidth="0">
        <frame name="navi" src="navi.php">
  • save the file

best wishes,

Yeah, well, the difference between a bug and a design issue is just the magnitude of the oversight. When something is not the way it should be (and there's no margin for questionability) I call it a bug.

Thanks for the quick fix code; I know I can fix it by editing the html, my intention was to report it.

thanks
