Home Theme and Member Theme troubleshooting

    Using Buddypress 1.0.2 on WPMU 2.7.1.

    I am using and editing the default BP home theme and member theme. However, I am having a hec of a time trying to get the header for both to match up. I was able to customize the header of my home theme to what I want, but can’t get it to look the same on the member side.

    I feel like I’m missing something very simple and am hoping somebody can point me in the right direction. I really have tried to figure it out, including searching this board and google for answers — I’ve been at it for a couple of days and am finally posting to this forum for help.

    Help?

    Are you sure you’ve cross-checked your BP home header.php with your BP member header.php?

    With the exception of a couple of customizations and function calls, they should be almost identical.

    I’m pretty sure it’s simply a CSS problem but I’m killing myself trying to figure out how to fix it! I took the advice of the FAQ and have been using Firebug (which is great!) but I’m still at a loss. Here are some shots of the good header (this includes the nav area):

    Good Header

    and bad header:

    Bad Header

    Any CSS pros out there willing to help a newbie?

    Which one is the bad header? The home theme or the member theme?

    Looks simple enough… the container holding the bad header needs a background CSS attribute. That’s what my guess would be.

    I can’t do anything from here without a link though!

    Hi Ray,

    Here’s the LINK. It’s on the member theme. I appreciate any help you offer!

    Arghh… your server hates me! Way too slow!

    This will work… in your bp-themes/bpmember/style.css, add this:

    #header {height:112px;}

    Adjust the height to your liking… don’t ask me why I have to define the height… it’s what works the quickest at this time without me going into your CSS and debugging! ;)

    Thank R-A-Y! It works! I went ahead and also added that line to the style.css in the bphome theme.

    Again, thanks so much!

    btw, good luck with your conference in November :)

    Oh and be sure to green light this thread… set the thread to “resolved” at the top!
