dropdown usermenu overflow issue

Reported by: Aerilius Owned by: rails-dev@…
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: website Version:
Keywords: Cc:


After creating an account on, the dropdown usermenu shows a long urlencoded path string so that the button covers almost the whole browser width. This is probably because a new user does not yet have a profile image.

Expected behavior: The path string would not be visible, no profile image or a default avatar would be displayed.

Browser: Firefox 26.0

Operating System: Ubuntu 13.10

What I reported above is with what a new user was greeted without going through the available settings. I just found that disabling Gravatar works around the issue (which was preselected). Apart from that it could be thought whether to use Gravatar only without the user's consent.

This shouldn't happen because gravatar should redirect back to the osm URL that we pass as the default, which will then display the default image.

If you look at the image you posted you'll see there is a d= parameter in the link text, which is the URL it should have redirected back to, and testing here seems to show it working for me...

I've pushed 67dbde0/rails to stop the long URL displaying if something goes wrong.
