My theme is ignoring/overriding Buddypress default css

    I followed the steps here: http://codex.buddypress.org/theme-compatibility/ but for some odd reason my theme (Avenue) seems to be ignoring or overriding the buddypress css files. (I hit refresh a bagillion times, just to make sure it wasn’t a caching issue).

    I’d actually like the reverse to happen where within the content area Avenue’s theme’s css gets thrown out in favor of buddypress’.

    Any ideas on why the steps in the theme-compatibility aren’t working?

    And just double checked and the buddypress css is being loaded: <link rel=’stylesheet’ id=’bp-child-css-css’ href=’http://www.mydomain.com/wp-content/themes/Avenue/css/buddypress.css?ver=1.7.1′ type=’text/css’ media=’screen’ />

    And it’s being loaded after the main Avenue style, but for some odd reason the main css is overriding all the overlapping styles in the buddypress css. Any ideas on how to get around this problem?

    Are all styles overloading or just some? If just some it could be forcing styles through.
    Are you also using BuddyPress 1.7.2 (or 1.7.x)?

    However, if it’s all then can you check if the theme has this line in it:

    add_theme_support( 'buddypress' );

    If no, then can you try with another theme just to see if it’s Avenue that’s being grumpy? Maybe something like the default WordPress Twenty-Twelve would be a nice test theme.
