#16877 closed Bug (fixed)

documentation code blocks cropped on mobile browsers

Reported by: dardub@… Owned by: nobody
Component: * Version: 1.3
Severity: Normal Keywords:
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


I tried to follow along with the tutorials using my nook color browser. The code blocks are cut off at the end of the line. They do not have a horizontal scroll like on my computer's browser. I'm guessing this also affects some of the other android tablets. I was using the default nook browser.

This has been a long standing problem for mobile browsers, and I assumed it was already in trac - but can not find anything that would justify this being marked as duplicate.

For a rough, old, and inadequate solution - see an old blog post of mine:

Since this would probably need to be solved in the specific serving context of - I'm changing the component.

I confirm this problem happens on Android (but not iOS).

Is this still an issue? I can see on my Android device that the code blocks may run long but I have the option to scroll horizontally. Android 4.3 Galaxy S3

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

I tried to reproduce on several mobile devices/browsers, but it looks like the issue is fixed now, maybe because of how modern mobile browsers matured.
