Buddypress 1.2 Child Theme Problem

    I’m making a new custom theme from the default 1.2 theme and I have run up against a display problem on the groups directory page. I have some odd “bullet points” that seem to be throwing off the design. Everything is getting pushed to the right. You can see the page here:

    You can see a screenshot with arrows here:

    Can anybody tell me what the problem is here?

    I am working with WordPress MU 2.9.1.1 and the display error is showing up in IE8 and Firefox 5.0. I tried checking the elements with Firebug and I could not find anything wrong.

  • Change in your CSS File bestbuddy-1.css the following definition:

    ul.item-list {width: 94%;}

    Karto, do you mean change it to 94%? It’s at 100% now. And do you have any idea what is causing the bullet points or dots?

    Yes. Change it from 100 to 94%. With the bullets i am not sure, but i think there is a definition named list-style-type which has to be set to none in connection with the html-code ul or/and li .

    Karto, thank you X3.

    The % change worked for the group page.

    I found the devil in the details here. On the buddypress tutorial page it does not mention that you need to copy and upload the reset.css file into your child theme. Once I did that it fixed the spacing and the bullet point errors in IE8 and in Firefox.

    Where did you copy the reset.css file from? I’m not seeing it in plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default

    Is it somewhere else?

    Thnks!
