Theme conflict – EE 4.4.8.p and Suffusion 4.4.7

In two places the formatting of my home page went wrong when EE was activated. The problem appeared at these two lines:

<div class="suf-mag-excerpts-header left">Featured articles</div>

<h2 class="suf-mag-excerpt-title left">...</h2>

This related to EE’s espresso_default.css:

.float-left {
float: left;

Anyway, the simple workaround was to edit the Suffusion settings so that it uses “center” rather than “left”.

There may be a problem with Suffusion which I don’t understand (as it’s not been updated for a while) but I’m happy with this workaround. I hope that it assists others.

Hi Jonathan,

This is kind of an interesting little case of why it’s not a good idea to use a super generic class name. Unfortunately a lot of frameworks (like bootstrap) do this which leads to other people thinking it’s a good idea.

I looked at Suffusion’s stylesheet and it’s sometimes using the .left class for aligning text to the left, moving a margin to the left, or other times for floating to the left. Whereas Event Espresso 4 uses the .left class for floating to the left.

You can work around this conflict by adding something like this to your custom stylesheet:

.suf-mag-excerpt-title.left {
  float: none;

I’ve incorporated this but haven’t tested it (as I’m happy with using ‘center’ instead for now). It looks fine. Thank you very much again.
