Re: Buddypress CSS Validation Error Reporting

Hugo Ashmore


No you’re not the only one I raised a ticket on the matter.

Problem is that for the moment you shouldn’t use that hide adminbar unless you make some changes. The issue is that there is a function that checks to see if disable adminbar is true and if so it generates a style tag with a ruleset to hide the adminbar with display:none, this function then adds an action with places this style tag erroneously in the wp_footer hook resulting in a style tag sitting in the document body, a major validation issue as it’s obviously illegal to place this tag at this point in a document.

As in reality this style tag is not actually required due to the adminbar being removed anyway the function ought to have been removed, but for some unknown reason it was deemed to be ok to leave until bp 1.3 branch is released.

To fix in the meanwhile as there may be a wait for 1.3 you will have to add a remove_action or edit the core file holding the function (not first choice)

In a child functions.php file you can try adding this line:

remove_action(‘wp_footer’, ‘bp_core_override_adminbar_css’);

That should prevent the action from running, tested and works for me on WP 3.0 BP 1.2..4.1, but there may possibly be better approaches?
