I have noticed a problem with articles that have both images aligned to the left and images/infoboxes aligned to the right. If the left aligned image is not positioned above all other right-aligned elements then it will be forced to position directly across from a right-aligned element.

I guess this description is vague. For an example, see this page: http://bioshock.wikia.com/index.php?title=Sander_Cohen&oldid=83138

You should notice that the first left aligned image (File:Sander Cohen Portrait.png) is forced to align with the Enemybox template despite the fact that it should show at the top of the article. This in itself is not a very big problem, but it is annoying. The same problem happens with the current version of the page and the File:BioShock2 2010-02-27 17-38-29-84.png - it should display just below the "BioShock" heading, but it is forced to align with the Enemybox. (This may only be visible for people with wide screens.)

My questions are...

  • Has anyone noticed this before?
  • Is this a glitch or is it something intentional on Wikia's part?
  • Is there a code/workaround for this?

I think it's only for people with widescreens. Because it fits perfectly for me. Let me check my mac, it has a much wider screen. HaloTalk 04:45, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
So I stuck it on my mac, and I can confirm this is only a problem for people with really wide screens. As to how to fix it...I'm probably not the best person to ask *sorry* =( HaloTalk 04:54, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
That is a strange issue all right. It could be a scaling problem with the margin or padding around the image. You can see the problem with any sized window, if you zoom out enough (at least on Firefox). -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 10:52 PM PST 12 Jul 2010
