Defect #33374

The content added via the "view_layouts_base_body_bottom" Hook is generated outside of any wrapper object.
With r18427 the size of the wrapper object is set to 100% of the viewport height.
As "view_layouts_base_body_bottom" places content outside of that wrapper, that content is now displayed outside of the viewport.
A possible fix could be placing the

<%= call_hook :view_layouts_base_body_bottom %>

line within the wrapper object like this
  <div id="footer">

  <%= call_hook :view_layouts_base_body_bottom %>

  • Status changed from New to Confirmed

I have confirmed that a user has to scroll down to see the content inserted with view_layouts_base_body_bottom as reported by Oliver Köhler.

But I am not sure whether moving the position of view_layouts_base_body_bottom is the best solution because the change makes an inconsistency. The inconsistency is that the view_layouts_base_top is currently placed right after the <body>, but the view_layouts_base_bottom will no longer be placed right before the </body> after applying the fix.

Maybe fixing this by somehow updating the CSS is better?
