      Description

      Taking part in a Chat discussion group for Learn Moodle with Helen Foster and Mary Cooch, a user commented that the chat imput area was hidden by her computer's task bar. I found that this was true for of my Laptop computer screen.

      On testing and trying to discover the cause I found that the new class="p-y-l" in Boost theme, was the problem as it adds a 1rem padding to the top of every instance of that CSS selector within Moodle, which includes the chat-imput-area span.

      The fix for this is easy:
      #chat-input-area.box.p-y-1

      { padding-top: 0 !important; }
