Wrap/Column width issues

I'm noticing a couple of width issues, or wrap issues with our install of BlogsMU. We've got the latest versions of BlogsMU, BP, and WPMU

The signup page is totally unusable and obviously the most critical for us to correct. The groups descriptions are wrapping way too short, which is less critical, but is not nice to look at. Finally, the activity stream looks really bunched up - minor aesthetic problem.

Where is the hitch? How can we fix it?

    Hiya PartridgeHillMedia,

    Any chance we can get a link to the site? It's next to impossible to sort this kind of issue without actually getting to take a look at the code.

    Do you have any extra plugins deactivated? Check that as well.

    Shut them all off and turned them each back on, checking the results. The account form seems to be sorted out now. The activity stream is looking good, but the groups listing is still wrapping too short.

    And I've just discovered that the sub header button isn't linked, so I'm off to find out where that is so that I can fix it.

    Any ideas about those groups listings?

    Many thanks!

    Hiya Nissa,

    For the group columns, you'll need to add a little custom CSS. The blogs-mu theme has a file for this information by going to blogs-mu/_inc/css/custom.css.

    In this folder you're going to want to copy/paste something like the following:
    ul.item-list li div.item-desc { width: 95%; }

    Remember that during theme updates you'll need to save this file and copy it back into the plugin directory. Or alternately you could use a child theme.

    That should do the trick for ya. Let us know!
