Safari and Chrome CSS

  • DarwinsDream


    I have an intergrated version of buddypress on my wordpress site using the default theme at . I’ve been editing it for weeks but for some reason in Safari and Chrome the CSS shifts the content and the user name to the right about 80px or there is no CSS being read whatsoever. Does anyone have any clue whats going on here? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I think it maybe an HTML5 issue but definitely a CSS issue

    Here is a good exaple of whats going on:


    open in firefox or ie, then open in safari or chrome the difference is clear.

  • Easiest thing to do would be to set a width for (instead of relying on auto)

    #content td.bbp-topic-author



    thanks jaredatch,

    i did this…

    ” Easiest thing to do would be to set a width for (instead of relying on auto)

    #content td.bbp-topic-author “

    it did nothing across platforms, but thank you very much for a quick reply.

    here is the code i used and is still in place on the live site.

    #content td.bbp-topic-author,

    #content td.bbp-reply-author {

    padding: 15px;

    text-align: center;

    vertical-align: top;

    width: 100px;

    I also tried width values of % and pt

    I also attacked the column next to it, but i think the issue is in the author column…. Any other ideas?

    #content tbody .bbp-topic-content,

    #content tbody .bbp-reply-content {

    vertical-align: top;

    padding: 5px 10px 0px 0px;

    overflow: auto;

    I see what you mean. I’m not sure, I played around with the CSS but couldn’t get it to work either.

    It’s worth noting that bbPress 2.1 actually has switched to a tableless layout :)



    I got it…. woah… Topic Resolved

    in bbpress.css (Line 109)

    #content th.bbp-topic-author,

    #content th.bbp-reply-author {

    text-align: center;

    width: 110px;


    Sets the size of the container holding all the author info. Which the forum content aligns to. Mine was set too small it works now. With a little tweaks back and forth to adjust for cross browser continuity. hmmm

    Do you know what effects the update to 2.1 will have?

    btw you rock as a moderator !!! thanks

    and how the hell do i change my avatar on ? haha

    The 2.1 upgrade should be smooth, however yo should certainly make backups before you update.

    Avatars are through :)



    Always do thanks :)
