bbPress 2.2.1 and 2.2.2 – list style missing

    I did the foolish thing of changing two variables at the same time and now I’m not sure what I caused.  Recently I upgraded to bbPress 2.2.1 and at the same time moved to Twenty Eleven theme (wanted a responsive bbPress theme).  Had a couple of problems which I googled and resolved:

    1) no side bars showed up on Forum & Topic pages (fixed by installing Twenty Eleven Theme Extensions & Enabling Widgets on single post pages)

    2) Ultimate Tiny MCE was no longer showing up .. this was fixed by John’s helpful advice in:

    http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/no-more-ultimate-tinymce-buttons-in-fancy-editor-after-latest-2-2-update/#post-120641

    And I noticed a third issue, which was for ordered and unordered lists, they longer had bullets/numbers.  I upgraded to bbPress 2.2.2 today hoping that might have fixed the problem but the behaviour is still the same.

    I looked at the element information in Chrome and it shows that the list-style-type is set to “none” by bbpress.css. This is true for both ul and ol type lists.  I can’t be sure whether it is Twenty Eleven or the bbPress updates which caused the formatting to change but the fact bbpress.css was involved pointed me here.

    Being a pretty newbie guy from CSS perspective, I don’t know where and how I show try override the style type.

    Suggestions greatly appreciated.

    regards, Paul

    It’s most likely bbPress’s fault, being too strict on clearing out the CSS for lists.

    Is there a workaround (I hope I’m not asking a boy if he knew anything about CSS, this would be obvious question)?

    Ok , so it’s a bit of physician heal thyself but here’s how I fixed in case other people are having the problem.

    I found this:

    http://codex.bbpress.org/theme-compatibility/

    which shows how to create a custom bbpress.css in 2.0 and later.  Then I changed line 62 to be:

    list-style-type:   inherit /* was ‘none’ */;

    (basically took out the none override for basic list elements).

    Seems like overkill to have a complete copy of bbpress.css just to change one line but I could not find another place to override it.  Tried playing around with trying a skeleton bbpress.css that @import‘ed the default one but didn’t have much success with that.

    Anyways, issue has been resolved, thanks!

    I’m having this same problem. no ordered or unordered list markings. I’m not understanding how you fixed this though…

    ok, i fixed mine in a different way. Since I was using the default bbpress template, there was no folder for it in the directory listed in the bbpress codex page you linked to.

    What i did, was open the CSS editor under theme editor and pasted your line into the pretty much empty box.
