Support » Plugin: bbp style pack » Widget display problems

    Hello,
    I am noticing in the last few days and that is even prior to upgrading to wordpress 5.3 the bbpreply widget which lists the recent replies does not list the replies CLEARLY as it used to.

    After the listing there is line now added next to all new replies that says”<span class=”dashicons dashicons-visibility wvrbbp-fav-sub” style=”font-size:80%;vertical-align:middle;”></span>”.

    This added line obviously is taking away the clean clear quality of the webpage making it look ugly like a coded page. Please advise. Thank you.

    I don’t see that in widget id=”bbp-replies-widget-2″ (with added class “widget_display_replies”). If exists that can easily take off with CSS just setting for unwanted element display:none.

    I looked the source code of widget.php of this plugin and bbPress. Those don’t have any line, which has this content.

    I use bbPress 2.6.0.

    According to my experience updating to WordPress 5.2 and bbPress 2.6.0 doesn’t change the behavior of last replies widget (many other changes was, but not relating this issue).

    This is I suspect a bbpress version 2.6 issue – can you confirm what version of bbpress you are using ?

    Hello Robin, the bbpress version is 2.6.1. Thanks

    Hello @tapiohuuhaa

    I am using wordpress 5.3 and bbpress 2.6.1. If you think it can be taken away by CSS will you be kind enough to provide that code and where to install it? Thanks

    For example span.dashicons-visibility{display:none} to

    1. Custom CSS of the theme
      • Custom CSS of the bbp style pack plugin
      • Custom CSS added with Code Snippet
      • Custom CSS added to the CSS-file or the child theme

    So the code is “span.dashicons-visibility{display:none}” without the quotes?

    @tapiohuuhaa

    i tired the code both at the custom CSS of the theme itself as it gives me the option of doing it as well at the stylee CSS of the child theme. It isn’t working.

    When i added the entire code span.dashicons-visibility{display:none} at the styleCSS page of the child theme it first gave me an error message to take off “span” and said the code is “overqualified”. I tried both ways, first kept the “span” and then removed it but still not working.

    Robin i should mention as admin i am not seeing this problem but users are.

    If some plugin adds CSS, overriding existing CSS may need to add !important to the end.

    .dashicons-visibility{display:none!important}

    Using span.someting or just .something is commonly irrelevant. Adding element name makes CSS at leat more readable. Another possibility is to add more specific selector.

    body.bbpress .place-where-widget-exists .dashicons-visibility{….}

    Thank you for trying to help but in future if you really want to help someone please make sure your codes are legit and come with clear instructions on how to use. I just spent 2 hours trying to fix the problems that code created (deleted all theme settings) and finally had to do a website restore which included restoring several replies.

    Apparently it hided too much. The problem is that I didn’t figure, where something should hide. Apparently your theme use the class “dashicons-visibility” in several places. It would be important to know, what is the so-called parent element (element around the span tag) and maybe also needed information about so-called ancestor elements. Without necessary information it is impossible to give correct code.

    It would be in general good idea to take a screen capture from source code, where the problem exists. Then it would be possible to give exact proposal.
