Am looking to hire someone to help with short customization of bb-press forum

    Hi,

    I have been struggling for days to fix a customization problem in my bbpress forum: I want to extend the header to the end of the page but when I do that, it knocks out the sidebar to the bottom of the page.

    It seems like a simple customization but I can’t do it!

    My page is polina-such.freehostia.com/bbpress. You will see that the header does not go all the way across.

    If you can help, please contact me at rlebowitz AT yahoo.com. I think it should be short customization.

    Thank you!!!

    Robert

    Hi Robert,

    I’m guessing really but i’d suggest:

    in style.css

    Line 31:

    #header, #posts {

    width:760px;

    }

    should read:

    #header, #posts {

    width:[input new width];

    }

    in style.css

    Line 45:

    #header h1 {

    background:url(“images/jillijheader4.jpg”) no-repeat scroll center top #999999;

    border-bottom:1px solid #999999;

    font-size:2em;

    height:182px;

    line-height:80px;

    width:760px;

    }

    should read:

    #header h1 {

    background:url(“images/jillijheader4.jpg”) no-repeat scroll center top #999999;

    border-bottom:1px solid #999999;

    font-size:2em;

    height:182px;

    line-height:80px;

    width:[input new width];

    }

    replace [input new width] with either a fixed width (1000px) or a percentage (100%).

    Good luck :)

    Its good to have people like Kevin here. :)

    People don’t need to shell out money for small fixes.

    P.S. - I am going home tomorrow (for a small vacation) or else I would have left my email ID here :P

    Hi Kevin,

    Thank you for your reply. The problem is, when I do what you suggest to widen the header, the sidebar gets pushed away to the bottom of the screen.

    To explain better what I mean, here are two screenshots.

    My header is only 75% of the way across:

    What happens when I extend the header:

    Again, I would be willing to hire someone to make the fix in the css.

    Thank you!

    Robert

    Robert,

    If you look around line 242 you’ll see the following

    #sidebar {

    float: left;

    width: 180px;

    margin: 0 0 0 0px !important; /* fixes 3-pixel bug */

    position: relative;

    top: 10px;

    }

    I think if you delete the following lines it will solve your problem:

    position: relative;

    top: 10px;

    Hope this helps

    Colin

    Hi Colin,

    Thanks, but no, the sidebar still jumped to the bottom.

    I ended up hiring someone and I think it did the trick…now I have to figure out what he did!

    Thanks anyway though,

    Robert
