Theme + Amount of Plugins = Broken Menus

    I remember having this issue a couple of years ago and was able to get help fixing it. For the life of me, I don’t remember how. So if anyone can help, it would be more than appreciated.

    So my theme compacts the total space of buddypress. So when viewing my profile, with all of the plugins I’ve added, the menus on the profile page breaks into two lines with links that break outside of the template space.

    I know it all deals with “#buddypress div.item-list-tabs ul li” having all of the default links in one line and the plugin links fill in.

    Is there a way to break up the menu links into two or more lines so that it doesn’t break my theme?

    Apparently the Edit Post link at the bottom here doesn’t work, so I’ll just add more in a new post:

    I know that editing the “float: left;” to “float: none;” in the CSS will put each link on a new line, but that’s really ugly. I’m looking to have like 5 links per line.

    @mercime Is there a way I can PM you the link with a login/password? The problem is only visible when you’re logged into an account and viewing your profile.

    @blinkybill01 recommend that you create a throw-away user account and post it here instead. After issue is resolved, just delete the account.

    Ok, set up a throw-away account.

    URL: http://slamfans.com/wp/members/demouser01/
    Login: demouser01
    Pass: demo123

    On that demouser01 profile page, you should see where the Achievements link is forced to a second line but it’s still following the CSS positioning. If you visit another member page, you don’t see that error. I’m assuming that’s because you don’t see the Notifications link on other members profiles.

    I’m trying to remember how I did it on another Buddypress site where I was able to force all of the plugin links, like Achievements, into a second line so that the first line remains with all of the default links. I did that about 2-3 years ago and that since has since floated away into the aether. So dunno if it’s even possible anymore with recent changes to Buddypress.

    Hope there’s a solution to be had. (But thinking about it, it would be awesome if there was a plugin that could me made for custom WP themes that would allow you to position links in the order and places you’d like.)

    Thanks!

    @blinkybill01 add height to the item-list li around 25px or more, up to you

    #buddypress div.item-list-tabs ul li { 
    height: 25px; 
    }
