need help with css matching between BP and Home theme

    I’m trying to put the wraps on a basic site design, which I basically cobbled together. I’m stumped by several problems that are no doubt really minor, but the solution to which has been escaping me for the last 2 days.

    Problem #1:

    If one of you would be so kind as to take a look at:

    http://customcult.net/groups

    and note the alignment of the title and subtitle of the site, partnered with the navigation lozenges. Obviously this is pulling from the bp-themes folder. I want to duplicate the exact layout on the home theme, but somehow can’t figure out how to make it match! You can see the current state of the title/subtitle/nav at customcult.net.

    Problem #2:

    take a look at http://customcult.net and scroll all the way down. Call me a neophyte (I am), but I’m totally at a loss on how to move the Archive heading up to be in line with the About and Links sections, without upsetting the whole applecart.

    ANY guidance would be most welcome!!!

    My suggestion would be to take the working CSS from your base.css file inside your member theme, and put it in your hometheme’s site-wide.css file.

    That way it will always apply itself to the entire site regardless of theme.

    Honestly, at this point I can’t even tell what that actual piece of working CSS is…

    try adding this in your site-wide.css file right after #footer{} stuff and mess around with the width…

    #footer-column{

    width: 39%;

    }

    Use firefox and install firebug. You’ll be able to see which CSS in what files is styling which elements much better that way.

    both excellent pieces of advice!

    Mike, the addition of the width qualifier definitely provided some guiding light on the alignment issues. It’s not perfect yet, but at least it feels like I’m getting closer to ‘aligned’.

    I’ve installed firebug as well, which is equally elucidating. I’ll play around a bit more with base.css in the member theme, and will try to whip this thing into shape!

    Yeah, that was more of dirty quick fix ;) You’d probably want to have a container for those three bottom cells, but that’d require you to mess with your footer.php file, too. Glad to hear you like Firebug. That’s probably my fav add-on for FF =)
