Support » Plugin: MP6 » MP6 taking on too many styles of theme

  • I love the plugin, but I’ve noticed it has some pretty vague style selectors that get over written by the theme. I had to throw an ID in front of the span so they wouldn’t take my theme’s styles.
    I just upgraded to 2.0 and now the bas sometimes doesn’t show while viewing website frontend. And when it does, the admin bar
    <li> items are at different vertical heights and the <a> tags are taking on my site’s anchor stylings.
    I feel like the #wpadminbar styles should all be exclusive, or more specific, so they remain intact? Not sure if I should try to style over this or if it will be resolved in an update?

    How does the admin-bar look when you turn off MP6?

    I recently rewrote some of the toolbar styles to be less scatter-shot, that’s probably the cause of this. I will take your suggestion and make most of the toolbar styles more specific, which should be the best of both worlds.

    Per your suggestion, I’ve rewritten some of the admin-bar CSS code to hopefully prevent the CSS bleed you were seeing, especially with regards to fonts, line-heights and colors. It’s in MP6 trunk, if you’d like to test it. (

    The biggest thing I see regarding this right now is that there is no line-height set by MP6 for the <li> items in the admin bar. Themes easily change the line height simply by having li { line-height: 20px; }.

    Great, thanks guys. When I deactivate MP6 the admin bar looks good, so it’s definitely from the MP6 styling. However, I can no longer look at the default dashboard so I switched right back.
    Adding line height does help, but it needs more styling to completely reset. It’s not that big of a deal so Ill probably wait for an update.
