Theme Issue

    BuddyPress is working great. Only problem I am having is that it is forcing my sidebar to the bottom of any Buddypress content. (See here: http://pgnew.com/groups/litigation-paralegals/). There is an option with this theme to remove the sidebar however you have to have a page created to select the same. Is there anyway to remove the sidebar or make the Buddypress content wrap?

    Much thanks! :)

    1. Which version of WP/MU are you running? (WP 2.9.1)

    2. Did you install WP/MU as a directory or subdomain install? (N/A)

    3. If a directory install, is it in root or in a subdirectory? (N/A)

    4. Did you upgraded from a previous version of WP/MU? If so, from which version? (N/A)

    5. Was WP/MU functioning properly before installing/upgrading BuddyPress (BP)? e.g. permalinks, creating a new post, commenting. (Yes)

    6. Which version of BP are you running? (1.2)

    7. Did you upgraded from a previous version of BP? If so, from which version? (No)

    8. Do you have any plugins other than BuddyPress installed and activated? (Yes)

    11. Do you have any custom functions in bp-custom.php? (No)

    12. If running bbPress, which version? Or did your BuddyPress install come with a copy of bbPress built-in? (Forum integration was done but have not yet added bbPress)

    Try adding this to your stylesheet.

    #container { width: 630px; float: left; }

    There’s no width declared for the container in your stylesheet so it’s taking the full width of the page.

    Of the main template or Buddypress? (Sorry I’m a bit slow)

    EDIT: this is for the default BP theme not a custom WP to BP conversion

    plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/_inc/css/default.css

    but if you upgrade BP stuff you add to the default css will get removed.

    It is better to create a child theme that has a blank css file and then put overrides there.

    She can just add that to her existing WP theme, actually.

    Having worked with that theme before, you’ll also have to modify the html in the buddypress templates that were added to your theme folder.

    For thsoe who didn’t go look, she’s added BP to an exisiting WP install and is adapting her current template.

    Thank you Andrea. What will I need to modify in the HTML in the BP Template?

    No need to edit html. Needs a float added

    http://pgnew.com/wp-content/themes/wp-clear-basic/style.css

    line 95

    #content {

    float:left;

    margin:0;

    padding:0;

    width:630px;

    }

    I added #container { width: 630px; float: left; } to the default style.css and that did the trick. Thank you all for your help! You rock!
