Layout problems with Genesis Themes
I have a sandbox site at rdugeeks.com
I’m running WordPress 3.8, fresh install, just the initial content you get after an install.
I’m running Genesi 2.02 with the Eleven Forty Pro child theme.
I installed Buddy Press 1.9.1 and bbPress 2.5.3.
When BuddyPress installed it created 3 pages Activty, Members, and Groups, just like it is supposed to. And when I navigate to those pages, the actually BuddyPress content displays just fine. There are some wonky formatting issues. But I’m not concerned with those right now.
What I’m writing about is that on the pages associated with BuddyPress, there is a “By ” line at the top of the page just under the Title of the page. Also at the bottom of the page there is a “Filed Under” line. They look like Meta/Post Info from a blog post, but there’s no data in them. You can see an example at: http://rdugeeks.com/activity/ If I go to a non BuddyPress page, for example, http://rdugeeks.com/sample-page/ I do not see this extraneous info.
Furthermore, If I go into BuddyPress settings and change the page associated to the Activity Stream to be the /sample-page, the extraneous info appears on the Sample page but not on the /activity page. So it seems to be something introduced by BuddyPress or some weird interaction between BuddyPress and Genesis. (For the record, I’ve tried 2 or 3 of the Genesis 2.0 “Pro” themes and have seen it on them as well.)
When I tried the default Wordress themes (like Twenty Thirteen) I do not see the problem.
So it seems to be specific to the interaction between BuddyPress and Genesis.
When I compared the HTML between a BP page and the Sample Page, they seem identicle until you get to the article element in the main content wrapper:
Here’s the HTML for the article element of the Sample Page:
<article class="post-2 page type-page status-publish entry" itemscope="itemscope" itemtype="http://schema.org/CreativeWork"> <header class="entry-header"> <h1 class="entry-title" itemprop="headline">Sample Page</h1> </header> <div class="entry-content" itemprop="text">
Here’s the article HTML for the BP activity page:
<article class="post-0 bp_activity type-bp_activity status-publish entry" itemscope="itemscope" itemtype="http://schema.org/CreativeWork"> <header class="entry-header"> <h1 class="entry-title" itemprop="headline">Sitewide Activity</h1> <p class="entry-meta"> <time class="entry-time" itemprop="datePublished"></time> By <span class="entry-author" itemprop="author" itemscope="itemscope" itemtype="http://schema.org/Person"><a href="http://rdugeeks.com/author/" class="entry-author-link" itemprop="url" rel="author"><span class="entry-author-name" itemprop="name"></span></a></span> </p></header> <div class="entry-content" itemprop="text"> etc. etc.
