BuddyPress groups not displaying properly in Parabola

    How I love Cryout Creations themes! This is my third website using both a Cryout template and BuddyPress: first Nirvana, then Fluida, and now Parabola — but it’s the first time I encounter any problem. It is not a big one, but it’s enough to be annoying: the group pages are not displaying properly. It can be due to plugins, but when previewing with other themes, most of the time the groups are displaying properly. Maybe someone can help with some ideas to fix it?

    See the difference between how it looks on the current website I’m building and another one (with Nirvana):

    Thank you so much for your help, if you can!

    All the best,

    Can you give us a link with the problematic section in Parabola?

    Hi Zed,

    The BuddyPress pages are only accessible to registered users, but I have disabled the restricted access for a short duration so you can have a look. Here’s one group: http://auteurpreneur.net/groupes/merci-de-vous-presenter/

    Thank you! 🙂

    Any particular reason you’re using a top margin here?

    body.single-item.groups #buddypress div#item-header #item-header-cover-image #item-header-content, body.single-item.groups #buddypress div#item-header #item-header-cover-image #item-actions {
        clear: none;
        margin-left: 0;
        margin-top: 225px;
        max-width: 50%;
    }

    Hi Zed,

    I have no idea, I’m a newbie with CSS! If I want to get rid of it, do I only simply delete this part?

    Thank you very much!

    Could you please let me know in which file exactly I can find these lines, so I can modify them? I suppose I need to change the “225px” value to 0.

    Thank you so much for your help!

    Best regards

    It looks like custom CSS (manually added to your site – probably through WordPress’ Additional CSS field or a CSS plugins). If you did not add this to the site then you should ask whoever else has sufficient access to perform this as there could be a reason why it was added.

    I’m the only admin on the website…

    Then you need to remember what the purpose of that custom styling is and correct it or remove it to stop affecting the layout on the site.

    Hi Zed,

    I’m also asking for help on the BuddyPress forums — and I was advised to use a theme child to add CSS modifications (which appeared too complex for me at this stage), then to try amending using Simple custom CSS plugin. This works for modifying the margin, but something strange is happening that makes me doubt it’s really the head margin the culprit.

    With margin-top20px:

    With margin-top0px:

    See how the group description now appears on the group cover. Does it clarify another parameter to modify?

    Thank you and best regards
