    I am just learning my way around WordPress and came across this plugin and it sounds like you may have had the same issue I have. The grey bar at the top of buddypress goes in front of the sliding panel. I can't seem to find the header.php file to follow your steps.

    Can you help me please?

    Tynion, instead of hunting through the files to make the adjustment to remove the default admin bar, you could try installing a plugin that does this. Just search in the plugins directory for "remove bar" and you should see one of them toward the beginning of the list. Install it and it should get rid of the default bar.

    I've disabled admin bar and also I add that code to header, but when I try active the plugin, it gives me a blank page and nothing works anymore until I delete it.

    I'm using WordPress 3.0.4.

    With WP 3.1.2 and BP 1.2.8 the plugin did not work with either BuddyBass theme or the standard BuddyPress Theme. I added the code as Trivikrama suggested (good move) :

    52         <body <?php body_class() ?> id="bp-default">
    53           <?php if(function_exists(updateHeader)) updateHeader(); ?>
    54
    55                 <?php do_action( 'bp_before_header' ) ?>

    But neither the tab nor any sliding window appears. I am running in multi-site, multi-user mode if that makes a difference.

    Hey I just updated the 1.2 files ... it was missing the images and javascript folders. I hope that helps! You shouldn't need the added part in the header at all.

    Sarah!
    Brilliant! The included sub-folders made all the difference.
    I looked at the css and I thought something was missing .......
    Now I have a new issue -- the pop down login is appearing behind the main menu in the theme. Is there a Z-index I should set? I notice that#iRToppanel{ position:absolute;top:0;left:0; width:100%;z-index:999;
    and yet this is what it looks like.
    Thanks for this majorly cool plugin. Absolutely double-plus cool.

    Yeah there will be some theme adjustments some people have to make because of themes - play around with the z-index - maybe bump it up a few numbers. Looks like a z-index issue for sure.

    SUSSED!
    changing z-index to 1001 in style.css did the trick.
    Double-plus chuffed!

    Thanks Sarah, this is a real UI help for teaching faculty.
    All I have to do now is to figure out how to disable the 'Sign Up now' and change 'Forgot your password' since we're using LDAP authentication.

    Glad you've got it working! All changes can be made in the update-content.php file. Scroll down to the middle where you see the comment: // Else if user is not logged in, show login and register forms

    and then you can remove any items that you don't need, replace with an image or text or whatever or leave it blank.

    Brilliant. Thanks.
    I would add a link to my site but it's still in development and behind an asbestos firewall :-)

    Sounds like an issue with your theme. Adjust the z-index on your header and you should be fine. Or get in touch with me on my site for professional support.

    Got the overlay issue... there were 2 zindex points on the plugin style sheet... i had to override the Wootheme stylesheet z values that were set to 9999.... the two lines i changed on the plugin style.css were line 5 and 26... from 999 to 99999... just to be sure.. now it seems to be working..
    Line 5: #iRToppanel{ position:absolute;top:0;left:0; width:100%;z-index:99999;text-align:center; margin-left:auto; margin-right:auto; font-size:14px;}
    Line 26: .tab{ background:url(images/tab_b.png) repeat-x 0 0;height:42px;position:relative; top:-7px; z-index:99999}
    thanks!

    Still not working for me.
    Download the latest version of the plugin, I disabled the panel bar, but even so the plugin does not work for me: /
    I added this code after the body:
    <php if (function_exists (updateHeader)) updateHeader ();>
    But still not working.

    Also utilize the i3Theme theme, and made modifications to the theme.

    I await answers ..

    maninhox - you should start a new thread, instead of jumping on this one. You should not need to add that code after the body tag. The plugin already does that now so there's no need for the old code. Try it with the default theme and see if it works. If it does, then you have a conflict with your theme.

    Just tried it in firefox on http://tradr.com
    Put your mouse on the bottom of the 'TRA' image it is a hand...
    slowly scroll up so it is horizontally level to the stowed away bp sliding login bar and the hand disappears. That means you cant click my logo and go home.
    This is not a big issue on my home page.
    Try to go to my network site
    http://kettlebell.tradr.com.au
    You will not be able to click "sell a kettlebell"
    Tested in Chrome and Firefox no good. I don't want to corrupt my mac by putting IE on it sorry!
    Thanks for testing
    Johnny
