    Can someone please tell me why buddypress, using the standard theme, making just simple adjustments, is so difficult in dealing with MSIE and Safari? In Firefox and Chrome everything is great. In MSIE everything is skewed. In Safari everything is upside down.. seriously…. Header is below content, content is on top of the header area, it is a mess and a pain. Is there something absurdly missing from setting it up, or was it just not cross checked well?

    Welcome to the world of front-end web design. It sucks.

    There’s no such thing as a simple adjustment in CSS. A 1px change can ‘blow up’ a layout very easily. Nothing wrong with the code provided in the default themes. It’s actually really solid.



    Well I’m really glad to hear that. I know how css works. What I do not know is why in the world Safari is such a disaster. (MSIE can be hacked to work). How in the world can Safari get the order of things out of whack? What good is software that has this kind of problem? I’m really hoping to use this software for a very large site (and I mean huge) but…. if its this much ridiculous trade off back and forth of styles what good is it? Seriously. I’ve had great luck with WP products for years and now buddypress and this just makes me shake my head.

    The default BP theme works perfectly fine for me in Safari, FireFox and Chrome. Make sure you are using the most up-to-date version of Safari. Also, if you don’t use FireBug, I recommend that you do.

    Well… without knowing what you’re trying to do or what changes you’re making… I can’t really comment. I modified the default theme… including layout changes… and I never had any problem with Safari / Chrome. I almost never have any problems with Safari / Chrome. It’s almost unheard of that I come across a rendering bug in Webkit.
