HTML problems after 1.1 upgrade

  • Kieran


    Hi there, after upgrading to 1.1 I have a couple of html errors showing in both IE and Firefox:

    1. In all forum posts which were made before the upgrade, the paragraph tags <p> </p> are showing.

    2. In the Forums Index page, the “Forum Topics Tags” widget does not display well, the first six tags are so over-sized they overlap each other and cannot be read.

    Has anyone else come across these problems? I’ve tried searching for similar threads but could not find any?

    Does anyone have a clue how to fix these 2 issues

    I’m on BP 1.1 and WPMU 2.8.1

    I’m not sure about a solution to #1. If you don’t have a lot of forum topics, just edit them in bbPress or edit them in the BP Groups forums thanks to the new edit capabilities for site admins.

    But for #2, you could use CSS to override the inline style – I added the following to my custom.css file just as a temporary solution.

    #forums-directory-tags a:nth-child(-n+4)[style]{
    font-size: 24px !important;

    This CSS3 solution keeps my first four tags a standard size and keeps them from overlapping. This won’t work for browsers that don’t support CSS3 but you could simplify the solution above by removing “:nth-child(-n+4)” and still over-ride the inline style to have a standard font-size that would work on just about any browser but IE6.

    #forums-directory-tags a[style]{
    font-size: 18px !important;

    Or, if you must, check out the bp_forums_tag_heat_map function around line 967 in bp-forums-templatetags.php.



    thanks a lot David!
