    Dear Sir
    Thank you for your plugin Wp-Biographia and making it free. I need assistance regarding a very minor problem. Social networking links are showing vertically rather than horizontally. Kindly help in this regard

    It looks like there's another set of CSS definitions, either from your theme, or from another plugin, which is bleeding into the CSS that WP Biographia defines, probably overriding one or more components of ul.wp-biographia-list-text.li (see /wp-content/plugins/wp-biographia/css/wp-biographia.css at around line 66).

    I'd look at your site in the web inspector tool in Chrome or Firebug in Firefox (or another browser's equivalent) to see if you can spot anything immediately obvious.

    If nothing is immediately apparent, then I'd suggest reverting to a stock WordPress supported theme (such as TwentyTen) to see whether the problem goes away. If it does, then it's probably some CSS in your theme.

    If it doesn't, then it's more likely to be one of your plugins that isn't playing well with WP Biographia. In this case, going through each plugin and disabling it and re-checking whether the problem goes away should help to pinpoint the source.

    This isn't an uncommon problem. There's so many possible permutations of themes and plugins, that it's almost impossible to check for theme/plugin incompatibilities.

    Let me know what you find and how you get on and we can see how next to proceed.

    Dear Sir
    Thanks for time and response to my query...I reinstalled everything including theme and plugins. This time every thing was looking nice until
    1. I inserted two shortcodes (Separate for Editor and Authors)
    2. I Inserted a big image size (120x120)
    After above two changes above problem re-emerged as Social Networking

    Icons are showing vertically again...I switched the image size back to 100X100 but to no avail...

    Kindly help

    Reinstalling was a bit drastic and probably not needed but ...

    My advice remains the same as in my previous post, so ...

    Disable the plugins you've installed (I'm making the assumption that this is where your shortcodes are coming from)

    Remove the big image (you don't mention where you inserting this)

    ... does the problem go away?

    If not, let me know.

    If it does, re-enable your plugins, one by one, reloading a page or post that has the layout problem. Hopefully you'll find what's causing the problem.

    Without doing this, it's very difficult, indeed almost impossible, for me to work out what's going on and how to help you.

    Dear Sir
    I disabled all plugins...but no change in my social links...they all remained vertical. I have Biographia plugin installed on this page as well. This is same in terms of WordPress Theme and Plugins...

    I once again reiterate that change of image size changed icons from horizontal to vertical. In fact I changed Image size from default 100px to 120px. O immediately reverted image size back to 100px but to no avail...
    Plugin reset to default settings dis not help either.

    Kindly help....

    Have you tried reverting to a stock WordPress theme? Does this solve the problem (albeit temporarily)?

    What image is it that you're changing the size of and where are you configuring this?

    I can see that both your sites are running the same City Desk theme but as this is a premium theme I can't provide support for that. Also, there has to be something different in the plugins or any modifications you've made to the theme between the two sites otherwise both sites would behave identically.

    If the plugin runs fine on a stock WordPress theme then this points very strongly to it being a CSS clash with your theme. As I mentioned, I can't support your theme. Not because I won't, but because it's both a premium theme which I'd need to spend money on just to test and also because you should be able to get support from the theme provider. See http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Commercial_Products

    I think the avatar image size is not really related to this; I've just tried upping the size to 120px and whilst it messes up the layout of the Biography Box somewhat on my test install, which I sort of expected it to, it doesn't affect the layout of the social media links.

    Much as I don't like this, I'm not sure what else to suggest.

    Haven't heard back in over a week on this so I'm assuming you've sorted the problem and I'm marking this thread as resolved; feel free to reopen it if that's not the case.
