So I'm a novice, and everything I've learnt has been in the past week or two by setting up my own site.
I began with WordPress, using the Erratic theme by VPS Hosting, then integrated the wp-ecommerce plugin, now I want a forum on my site, so I went for Buddypress as it seemed to have the best functionality.
I used the Buddypress Template Pack to integrate it into my theme, and now I have two problems:
1. The Buddypress Admin Bar is fine on all my WordPress pages, but once I go into a Buddypress page, the admin bar disappears and leaves an unsightly empty space at the top of my pages.
2. My theme is fine on all my WordPress pages, but when I go to a Buddypress page the bottom half doesn't align correctly. The sidebar and widgets are fine, the Buddypress content is laid out just how it should be, but the bottom half of the padding and the footer are aligned way over to the right.
As I say, these issues only appear on the Buddypress pages, not on the WordPress pages. I was at it all day yesterday and all last night searching through Google and all my theme files trying to figure out what is up, but I'm just too new at this.
Oh, and I do apologise for posting this up on here but I tried the Buddypress.org and for some reason the type fields didn't show up so I couldn't type up a new topic =( So many issues!
I was tempted to just go for another plugin, but after seeing the Buddypress admin bar all over my website, I grew very accustomed to it and want to keep it there now... Any suggestions or help that anyone can offer on fixing these two problems for me would be so greatly appreciated!
