    Please explain what it does to the sidebar, and if possible include a link to a screen capture. Are you running any other plugins? Are you using the default theme?

    I’m having the same issue with my side bar using wordpress 3.0.5 and Platform Pro Theme. You can see an example here http://thebusysingleparent.com/members/admin/album/

    The side bar shouldn’t be lower than the rest.

    This is happening because you are not using BP-Album with the default BuddyPress theme. You will need to edit the plugin’s CSS files so it fits inside your custom theme.

    How do I do this?

    Learn how to use CSS:

    Get a CSS editor:
    http://www.netbeans.org

    Get a CSS debugger:
    http://getfirebug.com/

    Then build a css styles file that overrides the CSS styles for the plugin (which are located in /bp-album/includes/css/general.css) and add it to your include path.

    I would like to add this to one of my clients sites, but you know, with an answer like that … too scared to try :-(

    Well …perhaps for you… but for a developer with just a little bit more experience it is a very helpful answer.

    I visited the user’s website, went through the HTML source code of the broken page, figured out how experienced he was at building templates, and gave him an answer that (in my opinion) would do the most good: the resources he needs to get the job done, and a gentle reminder that we’re not going to build his site for him.

    As for you, I don’t know your experience level yet …but ask any reasonable question and we’ll do our best to get you the answers you need.

    Hey Foxly

    I put it up on my site and it works purrrrfectly. Thanks. But still a bit scared to try it on one of my clients sites, because I did not do the design etc.
