PerlMonks -- keep the navigation header out of your way

If you use and you find the magically floating navigation header that follows you as you scroll to be annoying, relief is at hand. Grab the CSS patch at and apply it in your browser. Firefox users should install the Stylish extension to enable the functionality; Opera and Greasemonkey users can run it as a userscript instead. IE users lose out as far as I know, but I'd be happy to be corrected :)

How to make resizable too!
by SuicideJunkie (Vicar) on Aug 20, 2009 at 21:04 UTC

    Stylish - - dynamic width pages

    Or, this code can be appended to your userContent.css file (create if necessary). The file should be found/created in your FF profile's chrome directory.

    What it does:

    1. Disables the fixed-width page rules!
    2. Prevents the title bar from jumping down the page at you even without saving a cookie or disabling javascript!
    3. Rearranges the sidebars to take up less room. (The docs are now quite readable even with only a 500px wide window)
    4. Moves the search box to the top left to allow window resizing
    5. Removes graphics which looked bad when resizing

    Note: This is surely ham-fisted CSS work, since I've never really done much CSS before, but it looks good on my FFv3, and does what it was intended to do. (points 1 and 2 above)

      Many, many thanks!

      Best, beth

    Am I the only one to think the new version *completely sucks* compared to the old one (which was very nice, and I'm glad I have a downloaded copy)? I actually get a lot of overwritten text in the menu and side bars (firefox 3.0.4), to the point that it is illegible; I sent JJ a screenshot to let him know "I'm used to stuff like this from hacky looking newsites but kind of figure the perl community should be held to a slightly higher standard".

      No, you're not the only one.

      and I'm glad I have a downloaded copy

      Lucky you. Wish I'd done for 5.10.


      I'm really indifferent to the whole site -- I use or local perldocs by preference. I'm just providing the style to help out Monks :)

    IE users lose out anyway, don't they ? :-D
