With the new fancy black top bar, the logo of the site got mutilated. I believe that the following CSS fix would bring it close to the original state, however, I'm not 100% sure and IMHO the old version should be checked.

The red and blue marks should be aligned.

.new-topbar .container #header #hlogo {
    margin-top: 13px;
    margin-bottom: 7px;

.new-topbar .container #header #hlogo a {
    margin-top: 20px;
    margin-bottom: 10px;

Spotted on Firefox 25.0, Fedora 13, GNOME 2.30.2, kernel

EDIT: If you wish to use the above fix through Stylish, you ought to put !important everywhere:

.new-topbar .container #header #hlogo {
    margin-top: 13px !important;
    margin-bottom: 7px !important;

.new-topbar .container #header #hlogo a {
    margin-top: 20px !important;
    margin-bottom: 10px !important;
  • What do you mean by "mutilated"? On my computer, using FF 25.0.1 and Chromium 30.0.1599.114, the logo is shown as before the introduction of the bar.

  • I'm not seeing this problem in Safari or Firefox on a Mac. Is this a platform dependent problem or was this fixed? If it was fixed it would be a good idea to finalise this thread. Commented Jan 5, 2014 at 4:02
  • @GeoffPointer No, it was not fixed, at least not for me. Can you please post a screenshot?

    @GeoffPointer It's not the red and blue things that I see, these serve only as helper lines. The problem is that they should be vertical aligned: The horizontal line is the axis of the {TeX} logo.

  • Okay, I see it now, sorry. Although it obviously didn't look mutilated to me until you pointed it out. Has someone got a pic of what it used to look like? Have you reported it, or is it going to go the way of everything else? Commented Jan 5, 2014 at 13:35

    @GeoffPointer This is the official way to report bugs, by a bug meta post. I couldn't find a screen-shot of the original site design.

  • While dealing with How can I make the top header fixed in my browser? I noticed that the following code, also specific for (meta).tex.sx, should be added (here in my comment as one-liner): .container {background-position: 5px 25px !important;}. The original vertical shift is -9px, the topbar height is 34px, hence the 25px.

Gotta love multiple site designs. :)

This will be fixed in the next build. Keep an eye out for revision 2014.5.19.1614, although I bet you'll notice the change in the logo at the top way before the tiny revision number at the very bottom of the page.

  • The number at the bottom is rev 2014.5.19.1614 but the logo is still in the wrong place …

    It's fixed in the sense of the hrule alignment. However, it's still far from [the original]: the logo used to have higher height to show more of the typeset equations and other stuff on background.

  • @Tobi My bad. I should've said 1615.

  • @tohecz I missed that entirely, sorry 'bout that. Will be fixed in the next build (*double-checks the number*) ... rev 2014.5.20.1617.

    @AnnaLear: Trivia: at each bugfix release of TeX, the version number acquires one more digit, so that it tends to the limit π. :) Commented May 20, 2014 at 22:03
  • Thanks @Anna. The logo used to be more spaced, but I think we'll get used to it.

  • Sorry for the unrelated comment, but could you take a look at meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/3824/…? Commented May 29, 2014 at 20:11
  • @TorbjørnT. I'll take a look. For some reason, there's been historical resistance to changing that (across a number of sites), so I'm gonna have to check with the design team.
