Q&A Plugin Style Issues in Single Question/Answer Area

Hi

I have found and corrected most of the style issues that come with using Q&A out of the box with Genesis child themes but this one is still outstanding. In the single question and answer page area the QA User Box floats right and down to the bottom of the container. I've managed to extend it by adding a width element, but that won't fix the placement issue. See attached screenshot...

    Hiya,

    I'll ask a couple of the theme devs if they can chip in and provide some guidance here for ya!

    It'd be good if we could also see the CSS you've used so far and even better a link to the site where we could see this in action.

    Cheers!
    Phil

    Hiya guys,

    The reason for this difference is that the Question has an extra div tag for the question content and the date stamp. This leads to the User Box being moved down a bit.

    The content in the answer doesn't have a div, paragraph tag, or date stamp so the User Box appears in-line with the content.

    I've already asked the plugin developer to have a look and see if we can handle this better in an update. We'll report back soon :)

    Thanks!

    @scribu any word on this one? I saw mention of an alpha release with another issue and wondered if this issue might also be addressed?

    @scotmacdonald re user boxes: you have some weird CSS rules there, which are not part of the original stylesheet that comes with the plugin.

    Anyway, I've attached an alpha version that makes use of $content_width, if it's defined by your theme.

    @Avi: This alpha also contains a fix for the user box positioning problem you mentioned.

    @scribu, thanks for making the updated version available. Unfortunatly I still seem to still be having the issue.

    Here is a link if you want to see how it is displaying.

    Guys

    Can we envision a solution to this issue soon, or should we move on to a dedicated Q&A theme because it can't be used on a live site with this problem.

    @scotmacdonald and @Avi:

    That's the expected behaviour: the user box is floated to the right, at the same height as the links on the left.

    How can you say this is the expected behaviour when your own demo shows the user box atop the post and extending the full width of the content area as per the attachment?

    Well then once again a plugin that does not perform as advertised on this site.

    Great plugin, but poor execution, and hardly worthy of your other fine work.
