Fix overlapping lists and floating content

Applies to:
All MindTouch Versions
Role required:

This article enables authors to fix this overlap by adding a CSS class to their list. When you have an image or other content floated on a page, it can overlap list item bullets or numbers. As a site administrator, you will need to setup a site-wide override.

Site Administrator Steps

  1. Open the Site Tools > Control Panel menu
  2. Select the Custom Site CSS option
  3. Add the following CSS code to the end of your All Roles CSS on its own new line:
    .mt-overflow-auto {
        overflow: auto;
  4. Click the Save Changes.

Content Author Steps

Apply a new CSS class to your list

  1. Go to an article in your MindTouch site and click Edit
  2. In the editor, select View > Source (editing HTML)
  3. Add the following text in the list tag (<ol> or <ul>): class="mt-overflow-auto"
  4. The list should look similar to the following:
    <ul class="mt-overflow-auto">
        <li>Item 01</li>
        <li>Item 02</li>
        <li>Item 03</li>
  5. Save the page
