Oh wow umm,
It looks as though there isn’t a lot of styling going on for your forum.
Where did you get your bbpress.css file from? It looks really short compared the one I got originally.
It’s just the shortcode forum when I post it into a page: http://www.bookkus.com/test-forum/
If I use the other forum it looks like this: http://www.bookkus.com/forums-2/
Does anyone have any ideas?
I tried deactivating plug-ins to no effect. Any other ideas?
I am still thinking your bbpress.css file seems a little short, where did that initially come from?
Hi Bookkus, I have exactly the same problem here.
I’m using a child theme of BP default. bbPress 2.3.2, BP 1.7.3, WP 3.5.2.
The pages generated by bbPress follow my theme styling fine:
However when I use a bbPress shortcode, the styling / font goes wrong:
Have you ever fixed this?
nicoblue: I checked your website and – as far as I can see – you solved the problem. I’ve the same issue now; could you help me with the solution?
Wordpress version: 3.5.1
BBpress version: 2.3.2
Theme: Default Twenty-eleven (from earlier WP) with my own minor modifications
The problem is the same: the bbpress forum style on the full-width pages are working flawless. But when I use the shortcode, the floating elements are broken, for example the pagination is messed up. The styling was okay a year ago, but I updated bbpress not so long ago, after I did not checked the shortcode pages (my bad…), and yesterday I faced with the problem.
I show you the difference:
On full-width page, without shortcode (perfect):
With shortcode, pagination and other styles are broken:
At the bottom of the page, the new topic box (the border) is wrong:
If anyone could give me a hint… 🙂
To moderators: please, remove the blog links and images from my post! My server is under heavy load 🙁
Ok, so my understanding is shortcode-generated content does not follow the style of the page templates.
To fix this, I have defined a global style in my style.css – this applies to all content which is not addressed by page templates.
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, 'sans-serif';
Hope this helps.
