News app has a lot of empty space at the bottom of the page

Nextcloud version: 20.0.4
News version: 15.1.0
Operating system and version: Raspbian Buster
Apache or nginx version: Apache/2.4.38 (Raspbian)
PHP version: PHP 7.3.19-1~deb10u1

The issue you are facing:

The news app page has roughly twice as much space as needed (see the screenshot, scrollbar on right side is roughly at 1/2 of the page, while content has ended, more entries I have in the window, more empty space is appearing on the page, see second screenshot). This happens both in compact and normal view, both in latest Firefox and Chromium on linux.

If anyone has any idea what additional debug info may be helpful don’t hesitate to ask.

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): N. This issue for me was since nextcloud 16 I think, just managed to find some time to ask.

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Open news app in web browser, see way more scrolling space then needed

Quoting the developer of the app:

Yes, it’s by design so you could scroll until the last item title is at the top. It gets a bit out of hand as soon as there are a lot of items (50+) in the list, because then the space at the bottom is too much.

Well, thanks for the info.
