MU Admin Bar (7 posts)

    I've recently installed MU Admin Bar, and I must say that it's really nice. I've also went ahead and modified all the themes so that the theme is shifted down 28 pixels. (Modifying style.css or modifying the body tag in header.php on some of the stubborn ones.)

    While doing this, I noticed that some of the themes don't show the MU Admin Bar.

    The themes that don't work, that I found so far, are:
    Cordobo Green Park 0.9.2 BETA 11
    Bluebird 1.0
    Borderline Chaos

    Some sample blogs that the MU Admin Bar doesn't show up.

    Please let me know if there is a fix for this. I searched and found information about shifting the designs down, but not so much on this particular problem. thanks.

    check that the themes have the wp_footer call in the footer.php file.

    MrBrian - thanks that was the problem. Fixed those three themes, and I'll be fixing more as I find them. Quite time consuming to shift every theme down by 28 px, but I suppose it's necessary.

    You'll like my suggestion, then, just add a

    body {padding-top: 28px !important;}

    to the admin bar style and you are done.

    dsader - thanks. I wish I had known about this earlier. now that I've fudged most of the theme's css by adding the padding-top tags, it'll shift down the design by 56px.

    I am going to miss those 3 hours of my life. :(

    I updated the plugin with dsader's change.

    I had always used body padding-top of 24px... just seems to work better for me.

    When I finally got around to merging this new version with my customized version it took a little while due to modifications.

    kahless, if you want my modifications, I'd be happy to send my version now so that you can include the parts that you like. I've eliminated the need for dealing with the database directly, for example.

    Just let me know how I can send it to you.
