Bug Report

User Story

As an admin, I want to show proper title without cutting it if there is a scroll area so that admin will know that for which short-code they are adding the parameters.

Current Behavior

Currently, I am not able to see the proper title while adding a Give shortcode in pages.

Expected Behavior

I expect to see the proper title while adding a Give short-code into pages.

Bug Type

  • This bug describes functionality that once worked as expected in version X.X.X.
  • This bug describes functionality that never worked as expected.
  • I am not sure whether this functionality ever worked as expected.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Add/edit any pages.
  2. Add Give shortcode that has drop-downs fields in it.
  3. You see if there is a scrollbar then the title is not proper as scroll area is at the bottom side.


Possible Solution

If there is a scroll then the scroll area should remain at the top.

Acceptance Criteria

  • Make sure that if there is scroll bar then it displays the title properly.
  • Make sure admin can read the title while adding a short-code into a page with multiple drop-downs.
  • Make sure if there is no scroll area then also admin should be able to read the title properly.

I've noticed this only happens when there is not enough vertical height for the controls to fit on screen. If you select a shortcode with fewer options, it does not occur. I investigated this for some time in a past release and was not able to prevent it.

As an improvement I think we can at least allow the modal to use the entire screen height so the controls will be more likely to fit on screen without scrolling. Assigning this one to me.
