Admin bar not working properly on secondary blogs and dashboard

  • mmcomber



    I’m merging BuddyPress 1.1.3 into an existing wordpress theme on a WPMU 2.8.6 install.

    I’m working off a child of my premium theme (Newsport from WooThemes). I copied all of the folders from bp-sn-partent intpo the child them folder, plus the adminbar, userbar and plugin-template php files.

    I’ve got thing mostly working well inside the them on the main blog (, including the adminbar. However, the admin bar doesn’t display properly on secondary blogs (ie or in the dashboard on the mainblog.

    An admin bar is loaded on the sites, but doesn’t pull the css. Also the admin bar doesn’t show me as logged in on the secondary blogs (even when I’m logged in as admin).

    I’ve tried adding the adminbar file to the other themes on those blogs, no luck.

    Any ideas on what is wrong and how to fix this?

    Is merging the buddypress functions into a child theme part of the problem?

    Many thanks for your help.

    Okay, update. I actually cut and pasted the adminbar css into the secondary blog theme’s style.css. So the bar is displaying properly now.

    However, on the secondary blog, I’m still shown as logged out (even though logged in as admin on the main site). When I click the log in link on the secondary blog, it takes me back to the main site.

    That’s not how it worked under the old two theme system. Any help?



    Further update. I discovered the adminbar.css that is in the bp-sn-partent/_inc/css file lacks most of the !important comands that is found in the adminbar.css in bp-default/_inc/css file. So I included replaced the file in the child theme and also added an @import url(“../childtheme/_inc/css/adminbar.css”) in the style.css of the themes for secondary blogs.

    Admin bar now displays properly on all blogs and dashboards.

    Still haven’t figured out the problem with “log in” in the adminbar on secondary blog sending me to the mainblog homepage. So any help with that is appreciated.
