While I was translating the forum, I found that the calendar selection does not properly fit when the week days are not in english:

The strings are exactly the same length:
$txt['days_short'] = array('Нед', 'Пон', 'Вто', 'Сря', 'Чет', 'Пет', 'Съб');
$txt['days_short'] = array('Sun', 'Mon', 'Tue', 'Wed', 'Thu', 'Fri', 'Sat');



They're not the same length though. The Cyrillic letters on average are wider, similar to how w is wider than i in most sans-serif fonts, and the CSS just fits a fixed width in it.


Hm, you're right, I didn't know that - it depends on the font - I checked what is used (Arial), pasted the translations in Word and format them into Arial, so here is the result - slightly longer string:

Is the misfit of the calendar considered as a bug?


I believe it's definitely something that's worth fixing. After all, SMF is available in many languages, and it should be prepared for these cases..

Yup, I'd call that a bug. Minor one, but a bug none the less.

This has been tracked as #7401
