Q&A Plugin does not work with Optimizepress 2.0 theme

I am using optimizepress 2.0 as my Wordpress theme which is not your standard type of WP theme. When I display the questions/ask pages it appears as though all of the theme css has been stripped away. The header, sidebar, foot, navigation all display as non formatted html. I guess i could install a new copy of Wordpress in a subfolder and use one of the basic WP themes but this results in me maintaining two sites. Please advise. My site is pwd protected at the moment but i can send you a screenshot
