Forums not scrolling down properly

    Hey,

    What’s happening is that when people are responding in my forums, I can see about half of their message before it’s chopped off on the page and has ‘Quick Reply’ box and footer. No way to scroll down and see the rest of the messages.

    I’m running WordPress 3.4.1 on the main domain, with Buddy Press 1.5.6 and bbPress 2.1 and I’m being hosted by Hostgator. I also have Wishlist Member running on the site (it’s a paid membership site, also need some help figuring out how to make the forums and community pages private); it’s all fairly new and this is the first of me noticing a problem.

    I’ve been in touch with the theme’s technical support (Custom Community version 1.8.9.1) however they haven’t heard of anything similar happening before. I’m inclined to believe its a theme issue because they had some problems with the footer being a static height as well, but I wanted to check I’m not doing something silly from the Buddypress side!

    Any help appreciated. Thanks!

    To see if it is a theme issue have you tried or can you try the default theme and see what it does? I know in an active community this may not always be possible but it would be an indication once and for all if theme related.

    Aside from that it could very well be a theme versus plugin issue and some scripting clashes. To determine / start looking at that though would it be possible to have a link to the site?

    Thanks! It’s over at http://www.writercomposeyourself.com; at the moment because I haven’t been able to fix the permissions you should be able to get into the forums through the footer links.

    It would be really helpful if you could take a look (I’m really not a coder), but if it does give you trouble getting in let me know and I’ll make you a free account.

    The issues appear to be CSS such as this:

    `div.reply {
    height: 32px;
    }`

    I’d recommend not fixing things to height where you don’t know how much text would be in them.

    Ahh ok, I can go fix that. Thanks!

    Think it was a theme thing but I know enough to be able to change those around.

    Hey!

    Been doing a little more digging, and I’ve found the part you mentioned in Firebug (shows as inline, with no file name) but it doesn’t appear in my theme css or functions, or within buddy press as far as I can see.

    Any idea how I would go about locating it / is there an easy way to find out what file Firebug is on about?

    Thanks again.
