[resolved] [Plugin: BuddyPress Album+] CSS issue (alignment) (5 posts)

    Hi, I have a little issue with the way my layout is aligned on the Album section (as well as the page to upload and edit pictures). When I go to the Album page under someone's profile, it's all aligned to the left and there's also a border around it. I am using the bp-default theme (just modified a little). Screenshots: http://i42.tinypic.com/mkzyph.png (How it looks on Album page) | http://i40.tinypic.com/2ypj0d4.png (Normal look)

    Which plugin file should I edit so this gets fixed? Thanks in advance.

    The problem is probably being caused by the modifications you made to the default theme, and is likely inside the CSS stylesheet "default.css".

    BP Album+ cannot change the layout of your site. It sends the web browser a bunch of data wrapped in CSS styling tags. The web browser then takes your template's CSS stylesheet, and uses the styling rules inside it to arrange the data on the screen.

    Fully explaining how to debug your website's CSS file would take hours to write, so unfortunately I can't do that here ...but I can point you to some tools that will make your job much easier:

    Use Firebug + FireFox to analyze your CSS

    Use a proper CSS editor that finds mistakes

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for the response. It wasn't my CSS, it was another plugin interfering with it somehow. I deactivated it cause I didn't need it anymore and now the page is aligned properly and everything. :)

    Glad to hear you got it working!

    The other plugin was probably hooking into the main template and adding a couple of extra <div>'s somewhere, and then that probably caused the main template to expand and give that gap.

    Yes, debugging BP installations is fun ...lol
