css is completely broken by something when viewing bp group forums page in RC-1. Forums user brought it up. is broke. My dev server and linux server too. Only visiting the forums page in IE7. Firefox and Safari are OK.

Nothing else seems affected. Just any group's forum pages.

This happens only on the forums index page. Drill down into a topic and all is fine. What's the diff? Looking.

#2 @burtadsit

While I was in there looking around I noticed this in /buddypress-member/groups/forum/topic.php line 68

<?php do_action( 'groups_forum_new_topic_after' ) ?>

Should be:

<?php do_action( 'groups_forum_new_reply_after' ) ?>

It's this:

<p><span class="activity"><?php echo sprintf( ( 'updated %s ago', 'buddypress' ), bp_the_topic_time_since_last_post( false ) ) ?><span></p>

It blows the rest of the page in IE. Testing a fix.

Same <p><span> sequence in the group home for active forum topics doesn't get trashed. Why?

#5 @burtadsit

Well the fix is: "Remove the <p><span> activity line". Works for me. It's late and I have to get up early. I'll revisit the IE nightmare tomorrow.

Or Andy could take pity on me and wave his magic IE knowledge wand and make it all go away by morning. One can always hope.

I assigned this to me because I started working on it. However, anybody who comes up with the solution is more than welcome to take the credit. I gotta run til later this afternoon.

#7 @burtadsit

Fixed. <span> needed to be closed. Three hours of ignoring the html validation error messages that the span tag wasn't closed finally led me to the inescapable and astounding conclusion that the span tag wasn't closed.
