Re: Buddypress 1.2.6 adds extra padding-top
You shouldn’t really mod the core files, as they’ll be overwritten if you upgrade. Is there any filter you can hook on to instead as an interim solution?
Certainly though, this should be added to the trac as a potential bug to be looked at.
We have the same problem with child themes in secondary sites – we’ve turned off the admin bar, we don’t have any admin bar css being included in our child theme, but still it pulls in admin bar css code from bp-default and inserts the unwanted padding.
[As an aside: does anyone know where the code is that’s injecting the admin bar css include into the header of child themes? Is it a hook on wp-footer?]
