[Resolved] Buddypress causing issue with my site's "submit" buttons
I hope someone can help me with this…
I have a request for you to help me with an issue i’m having on my site, which i can’t seem to figure out. My website (www.featuredish.com) is having a problem with my wordpress theme’s designed “submit” buttons when viewed in Internet Explorer only. I noticed that the submit buttons (search field submit buttons, subscribe submit buttons, comment, etc) are not appearing properly as their designed to do when viewing the site in IE. Instead they are appearing completely white! I went to my theme providers support forum for help, and after discussion we determined that the cause was from the buddypress plugin i downloaded (i went through and activated/deactivated my plugins and the issue was resolved when i deactivated the buddypress). They tried to help me resolve it but couldn’t figure out how to override the white out of the submit button. Again, this seems to only be happening when viewing the site in IE. Otherwise, i’ve checked it out in chrome, safari, and firefox and it all seems fine.
It’s apparently being caused by buddypress. Any advice on what i could do to fix this would be appreciated. THank you!
hi ronnie @jackalo9,
there is probably a css/js conflict somewhere. Update your BP first and see if things goes better.
At this time, you use an old version of BP or at least an old bp-default theme !
Your page source code indicate this:
On BP 1.6.4, you would have this:
Notice also that there is an error in your path to the global.js: double slash between buddypress//bp-themes
Not sure if this issue is an error or normal, when using the template pack plugin.
That said, the problem is not BP, but the template or something you did to fit wp-bold106 with BP 😉
They tried to help me resolve it but couldn’t figure out how to override the white out of the submit button.
@jackalo9 Strange, I would have imagined that the theme author would have been able to help you out. What theme are you using? Site URL? You can override any style coming from bp.css at any point in your own theme’s style.css file.
@Chouf1…as far as i know my buddypress is up to date. It doesn’t say on my plugin page that the version is due for an update. As a matter of fact, on the plugin page, it says the version i have installed is 1.6.4, so i’m confused why it’s saying otherwise.
@mercime…The theme i’m using is wp-bold from http://www.solostream.com. They tried to help me add code to the custom.css to force it to style the submit buttongs by using “important!” but it wouldn’t give. Do you have any suggested code i should add to my custom.css?
Thank you for your responses!
@mercime I took your suggestion for changing out the bp.css file with the alternative one found on that site you linked. It seemed to have helped resolve the white button issue, however it affected the design of the links making them squared instead of rounded corners, as well as affected a few other things.
So, I replaced it with the original code, and went into the alternative version and located just the style settings for the “buttons.” From there i was able to narrow down the cause of the white button problem, swapped out the code from the original file pertaining to the button, and made alterations within the file to adjust the appearance back to the rounded edges.
In the end, your suggestion pointed me in the right direction to resolving this issue. For that, I am very appreciative. Thank you @mercime!
