Removing the adminbar padder in child theme

  • I am making a child theme based on default BP, and getting frustrated with my inability to get rid of the padder on adminbar so it will stretch the full page width.

    Any help?

    #wp-admin-bar .padder{
    width: 100% !important;

    that should make it look like the admin bar above

    You’re probably being foxed by this naughty little ruleset in default.css
    line 60
    #wp-admin-bar .padder {
    width:90% !important;

    I’ve changed that to 100% as the first thing i tried, no dice. It makes it wider, but not full page width

    try, rather than using !important, removing/ changing the offending ruleset in default. If you have copied default over to your child theme you are better of removing / adjusting styles in it than overriding. If you drop back to using default theme it will pick up the original styles.

    Then have you adjusted the min/max widths in adminbar.css?

    I have copied the entire default.css into the style.css in my custom theme and reworked it pretty heavily.

    I have also made a mirror of _inc/css/adminbar.css in my theme folder and set all the width attributes to 100% in this, no change.

    here is a screenshot (site is in maintenance mode, so link is no help :p)

    Are you sure your @import paths are correct, are you actually calling the right adminbar.css? There are only a few rulesets that will govern these dimensions, Firebug is a extension for Firefox that will allow you to observe which rulesets are applied to an element when you hover the element in the viewport.

    ../../plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/_inc/css/adminbar.css is my @import url

    id doesn’t seem like the adminbar.css in my theme folder is overriding the default tho

    You’re pulling in the original one, if you made changes in a copy then they won’t be applied.

    path is :

    if you copied the default structure to a child theme.

    ah, I expected it would do like default.css and just override with my changes.

    Fixed now, many thanks
