Custom Buddybar Width

    @teorourke

    Hi, currently the buddybar (not wp bar) takes up the entire width of the browser window. How would I go about customizing the size of it to match the width of the site (about 1000px)?

    I’ve combed through the css in google chrome using the dev options but couldn’t find anything. I came close though! Any suggestions?

  • Try this in your child themes style.css:

    div#wp-admin-bar {
    width: 1000px !important;
    }

    Ah perfect @shawn38! Except how do I get it centered now?

    add this:
    div#wp-admin-bar {
    left:100px !important;
    width: 1000px !important;
    }
    You may have to adjust the left: value; in pixels to nudge it where you need it.

    I tried that, all that does is indent it. Then when you resize the browser window it doesn’t budge but the rest of the page does. So then it’s no longer centered anymore.

    I also tried this and it didn’t do anything either. Any other ideas?

    div#wp-admin-bar {
    width: 1000px;
    margin-left:auto;
    margin-right:auto; !important;
    }

    I use the following in a child of bp default – all the other settings ( including for
    `#wp-admin-bar` ) I can see with firebug are default
    `
    #wp-admin-bar .padder {
    background-attachment: scroll;
    background-clip: border-box;
    background-color: #000000;
    background-image: none;
    background-origin: padding-box;
    background-position: 0 0;
    background-repeat: repeat;
    background-size: auto auto;
    height: 25px;
    width: 1000px !important;
    }
    `

    Do not create a new topic from dropdown link in adminbar.
    Go to http://buddypress.org/community/groups/how-to-and-troubleshooting/forum/
    Click on “New Topic” link above list of topics.
