Activity Stream Being Cut Off at Top - Links do not work.

Hello,
The activity stream site wide and on profiles is being being truncated at the top. I've disabled multiple plugins that work within the activity stream to see what might be causing an issue, however, none have an effect. I've disabled BP Moderation, BP Better Pagination, BP Activity Stream Bump to Top and BP Activity Stream Hashtags only. After that I disabled all plugins except for buddypress itself and still had the error. Any suggestions?
Regards,
Evan

    As you can see by my attached screenshot with latest BuddyPress and latest Scholar I can't replicate so I'd suggest you try that combination, clearing your cache, closing browser. Also please tell me what browser that would help in case. Providing a link is always far more helpful too than screenshots as we can only nod and go 'that's nice with screenshots' but we can really 'see' in the true sense on a live site.

    Hello Tammie,
    Thanks for the quick follow up. I didn't have any issues as well until I had created enough content so that the activity stream went to more than one page. Is there a way to PM message you the domain? The site isn't live.

    Browsers - same issue on all three.
    Firefox 3.6.1.2
    Chrome 7.0.517.41
    IE 8

    I'm running some portions of the latest Scholar theme. I've modified some aspects thus cannot perform a full and complete upgrade. I've had to load specific files in order to get the Classifieds plugin working as well. Do you know which theme files were modified for making the theme compatible with BP 1.2.6 as this might be the issue?

    Thanks again,
    Evan

    Almost every file it's why I advise you use the child and parent themes. That's the only way I'd ever suggest you run a theme there is no reason to not do that.

    Hello Tammie,
    I just read a couple of good articles on parent/child theme and why they are beneficial in my case. I've heard the term multiple times so I appreciate the nudging to get me to move in that direction :-). So I do have a couple of questions.

    1. What can and can't be controlled by the child theme. For example, I added code to introduce a Google MAP API based on the Address field of a users profile in member-header.php. I also added the existing "sidebar-members-directory.php" to the activity feed so I could deliver ads in the left column. Can these changes be introduced by using a parent/child theme? I ask, because everything I've seen thus far just address's CSS changes in the child theme.

    If yes, is it just a matter of creating the same directory structure in the child folder and moving these modified files to this folder?

    Lastly, once that is done, is it just a matter of updating the theme to see if this corrects the problem?

    I appreciate your patience!

    Regards,
    Evan

    Also forgot to add...

    1.) Can you recreate the condition of pagination in your test site to see if you can duplicate the error I'm having?

    2.) Just sent an email to you with link to my site. Once you register I'll approve so you can get to BP pages.

    I think this tutorial may help you understand them a bit more and explain a lot of your questions.

    I will note please do not send me links privately I did not ask for them and that's not what is required here :) Just watch the tutorial and follow that you'll be set.

    We will ask if ever need you to contact and tell you the email to use.

    Thanks. I only sent a direct email so that I do not broadcast my project through the forums. IMO it's no other "members" business to know what I'm working on, its a little different if you are in partnership with WPMUdev.org like yourself. You asked for a link to the website and I could not find a method to send you a private message through WPMUdev so I had no other alternative.

    Tammie

    Ok I understand now just mention next time and we'll be clear but in future use the contact form on this site and put for my attention. It was rather puzzling as you'd said you weren't going to send a link then did to my private email address :)
