Support » Plugin: BuddyPress Courseware » The reason why themes suffer from styling issues.

  • I was having an issue with the Salutation theme displaying my blog posts correctly. The styling was all wrong because it was clashing with the courseware stylesheet.

    I asked the themes developer about it and he was a great help and managed to come up with some css to fix it.

    However, in his reply, he wrote this

    The BuddyPress Courseware plugin appears to have a bug in its static/css/courseware.css stylesheet. If you open that stylesheet you will see the following style set on line 33:

    #lectures-tree-container ul, ol { margin: 0 1.5em 1.5em 0; padding-left: 1.5em; }

    The consequence of this style is that all ordered lists will have their margins and padding changed.

    Now I’m not sure what the plugin developers’ intention is here, but if this is deliberate then I think it’s a really dumb thing to do. You should contact the developers and ask them about it.

    I think this is why so many themes have styling problems when using Courseware?

    It certainly caused havoc with three of my themes.

    Just thought I’d point this out so people can get it fixed 🙂

    Other than that, this courseware plugin is AMAZING and it has made my teaching Korean site very unique, so I owe you guys the biggest thanks for inventing such a great plugin!
