    on line 1467 of style.css change this

    .content-headline {
        float: left;
        margin: 0 0 20px;
        width: 100%;
    }

    to this, or just copy the below code directly to your childthemes css

    .content-headline {
        float: none !important;
        margin: 0 0 20px;
        width: 100%;
    }

    that should make your avatar appear in that area along with your last status update please disregard my first answer i only took a very quick look first time.

    @rapforthemoment Normally where you have that big white space would be your avatar picture and last status update info etc, have you removed them? or is this a problem with your theme? also a quick inspection of your code says you have a line height of 150% in your body that could be causing this, go to your stylesheet and adjust this to say 28px on line 487,

    So go to your child themes style.css and search for line 487 and change the 150% to 28px as a starting point, then save and check your website, this will effect the line height of everything so if your not happy try a different value or reset it back.

    @alice-kaye just searching around and the clash i was getting at the time was similar to this and was caused by the same plugin https://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-causes-permalink-clash im not really sure how helpfull this will be if at all, this is to show you permalink issues caused by plugins crossing wires so to speak can happen, i’m not saying that this is even your problem its just a suggestion based upon what happened to myself in the past. it could be something totally different for you and troubleshooting it on a live site may be difficult.

    @alice-kaye sorry i missed this question while i was typing the above,

    I do have DP Pro Event Calendar (purchased from CodeCanyon.com). Do you know of a way to specifically see all of the slugs on a site to make sure nothing is duplicate? If not, that will take a while to track through all of them to see if that’s maybe the cause…

    tbh it was doing my head in for ages when it happened and i just couldnt pinpoint it for ages then something just clicked one day when i realized that they was both using the same permalink structure, then it was a sort of DOH! slap my head moment lol

    @henrywright mate im not saying that amount should be used without great caution because its not just about running 75 plugins as we know, its also aboutbeing able to update without problems too etc, the configuration i had at that time was 6 months solid work to get them all working together and as fast as i could it meant alot of dequeuing scripts and styles and ALOT! of trial and error to get them combined without breaking lots of things first :)

    @alice-kaye i really would research into making a testing environment and making a mirror of your live site for testing everything.

    @alice-kaye btw i once had a similar issue with permalinks keep messing up and it turned out the permalink structure used in 2 of my plugins was the same causing them to clash, this would happen intermittently just like you are saying although the 2 plugins wasn’t on your list.

    If i remember it was caused by 2 separate plugins that both used events as a permalink.

    Ooofff, as mentioned above, that is a HUGE list of plug-ins.

    Not really that big of a list 26, ive had a site running 75 plugins efficiently, the key is to doing this is of course trial and error and working out what plugins don’t clash with others etc and try to stay away from real heavy plugins, also can be very time consuming figuring out the correct way to concatenate all the javascripts and css from all the plugins efficiently enough to not slow everything down to a crawl and without breaking everything, this is all trial and error yet again, but believe me it can be done!

    @mrgiblets haha you did the exact same as me with picking twenty twelve when i first started using buddypress, i still think its one of the best blank canvas themes to work from apart from the lack of responsiveness it has, although you can make it fully responsive but its a pain to do, i even went to the extent of making it into a 3 column layout etc.

    In regards to what you want to implement no-one can really help you until the ideas of what you want to integrate emerge :)

    @shanebp i think i will defo be trying your premium version of this plugin further down the line pal.

    Re comment syncing: unfortunately, comment syncing is broken in BP 2.2.1 for custom post types.

    So what your saying is that because your plugin uses cpt,s that a comment made on the event wont show within the activity stream or vice versa?

    That’s a real shame if this is the case, although ive managed to show cpt,s in the activity stream in the past (without comments) and without even trying the new way of doing it id of thought that this would really need to be implemented at some point though?

    Do you think this could be resolved further down the line as like i said i would be defo interested in this plugin if the commenting could somehow be synced.

    @mrgiblets HI, I was the same as you when i first came to these forums nearly 2 years back, although i had website developing experience i found buddypress just as confusing, the best way to learn is to get stuck into it in my opinion, there are quite alot of good reads regarding things you may need to achieve in these forums, you should also read through these pages here https://codex.buddypress.org/

    When typing a message using “@” the dropdown list that pops up as soon as your start typing should only show names of the current users friends. What happens if you have 10,000+ users on your site? That’s going to get annoying for the users really fast. At very least there should be an option in the backend to activate this functionality.

    I tend to agree with this 100 percent, i have mentioned (ironic lol) this before in these forums, you should really have an option to either have @mentions for either sitewide or friends only.

    LIKE button. I wasn’t that surprised that something like this wasn’t installed as standard, but as this is an integral part of social interaction these days I was shocked after spending days trying to find a plug-in that works with the current version and have only managed to find one that works but is shaky at best. There are lots of “no longer available” plug-ins and bits of code and hacks out there but again – removed or deleted when you try to view them. From what I gather this seems to be something that developers have had real problems implementing. I can’t even find a single premium LIKE button plug-in out there! Surely it’s time to have this feature as standard?

    I believe from what ive read from the dev’s talking about this but i cannot remember the link to give you, that they are working on this via the already built in favorites button, they are trying to adapt it to a kind of liking system but their main concern seemed to be scalability and are working on a way to reduce the queries and database hits this could potentially have an effect with.

    A clean current install of BP doesn’t include a BP theme. I have read that you have removed this and tried to implement it with any standard WP theme but that doesn’t help new users when trying to figure out what BP is capable of. Despite formatting issues many of the things it can do simply aren’t that obvious with a default WP theme. Surely it should at least give you the option to install a standard BP theme from theme manager?

    They decided to stop support for the default theme and i would advise you to really search for a newer theme anyhows seeing as buddypress integrates with most themes flawlessly now.

    @gnasralla tbh i havent come across this issue myself and it shouldn’t really be happening so as dan stated id first troubleshoot if its a plugin or theme issue by first turning off all other plugins apart from buddypress and then if the issue is still there swap to any one of the default themes as a starting point.

    @gnasralla sounds like you are referring to when an admin has sent a site-wide notice to all users? and a problem where you cannot close it after sending it? @danbp lol ya nutter.

    @henrywright YOU MY FRIEND ARE A STAR! :) This is exactly what i was looking for and can confirm its working for me, i have now got the mentions split out with the number of mentions displayed and working correctly, thankyou very much henry!!!! also thankyou very much @danbp for your help. This is resolved! cheers.

    Oh one last thing henry it turns out i didnt need to use the echo $count; at the end because it was causing it to echo 4 times on the page, but removing it seemed to fix the problem and the count is still showing.

    So the final code i used was

    $query_vars = array(
    	'user_id' => get_current_user_id(),
    	'component_action' => 'new_at_mention',
    	'is_new' => true
    );
    $count = BP_Notifications_Notification::get_total_count( $query_vars )

    ty once again henry.

    scrap that! no i haven’t , it is just a link that takes me to my profile and shows all my mentions using it like that haha, like i said im learning and having a good play around, i suppose like you said @henrywright there is no point trying to do something there isnt a function for, but playing around helps me learn (slowly), everything else works good though so i might scrap trying to pull the mentions in separately.

    @henrywright using this bp_activity_format_notifications( $user_id = 0 ); i have got the mentions to show in the dropdown but without the username of who mentioned you until you hover over it, there is no count though.
