Changing Buddpress' width? A few pixels getting clipped.

    I’ve modified the template pack to remove the sidebar, but I still need to modify the width of the buddypress content. Here’s what it looks like: http://d.pr/i/9fMW

    Here’s the site: http://ao.thriveym.com/forums/

    Thanks for the help, I have a very basic knowledge of css, but usually have trouble tracking down the elements that I need to modify, even with Firebug’s help.

    As a side question, I’m wanting to simplify the forum layout, removing the create new topic button, and several other bits like that. Where would be good place to start to learn the specifics of how to do that the “right way” within BuddyPress?

    firstly, you should never have two elements with the same id http://imgur.com/vytJvgI

    div id=content is duplicated.

    div.item-list-tabs ul {
    width: 98%;
    }

    @modernlooper Thanks for the reply. When I’m looking at the forum/index.php, I’m not seeing a duplicate content area: https://gist.github.com/4669889 Is there something I’m missing there?

    And in reference to the CSS additions, what’s the proper location for adding in custom bits?

    Thanks again for your patience!

    You’re not using the default theme.

    Thanks for the reply. I’m using the Blox theme from Themezilla. I walked through some items in the codex, but wasn’t able to resolve the issues.

    What’s the best step to resolving the double content area problem?

    And should I create a new .css file to add the custom changes too? Or should I append those changes to my themes .css?

    The file you pasted into gist is the default theme not Blox. How did you get BuddyPress support into theme? On the theme’s store page it doesn’t say it supports BP

    I was under the impression that the template pack allowed BP to function with other themes, it just took some customization. So far, everything has been working fine other than these two issues.

    Here’s the page.php from the theme: https://gist.github.com/4671127

    Thanks again for the feedback.

    Ok, when editing the template files during the template pack install you added an extra div with id content. I would fix that first. Remove extra div from all bp template files.
