    Hello all,

    It’s been a while since I’ve used bbPress. I’m attempting to use v2.1 on a WordPress site with a custom template. However, when using bbp-theme-compat, the forum appears BELOW the sidebars. If I switch to twentyten, it appears ABOVE the sidebars.

    Is this just a simple CSS tweak or do I need to try something else? Thanks!

    Keith

    I had a look and I don’t really get how your main site pages are able to have the #content appear in between the sidebars.

    It doesn’t make sense!

    So the sidebars are floated left and then floated right.
    Then the #content section has no float on them at all and is not positioned absolutely so I just don’t see how it is managing to sit between the sidebars on your normal pages.

    On the forum link it makes sense to me that the forum does not sit in between the sidebars as it is not floated or is it not positioned absolutely.

    I hope this helps you track down what is going on, good luck!

    Thanks for taking a look, Lynq. I’m no HTML/CSS expert… but this layout follows a lot of three column tutorials that you’ll see online.

    Unless I’m missing something, neither of these float the conent section. Floats are only left and right, correct?

    Yes that is correct, that is why I am struggling with the CSS.

    How I would nearly do a layout is just float:left all the columns then clear below them.
    I have seen layouts like this, but they usually have some kind of absolute position or float, maybe because I rarely do layouts like this it is something simple I am over looking.

    Sorry I couldn’t be more help!

    You should be good to go by removing ‘clear: both;’ on line 15 of the bbPress CSS file

    @netweb, Thank you! Too bad it’s a little “hacky” but I think this will be temporary anyway. We’re looking at a site redesign soon, but at least we’ll have the forum working.

    @netweb and there it was, the simple thing I couldn’t see for the life of me!
