    Hi. I have this weird problem. After tweaking the custom CSS as the support team said so I can get the bbpress search box showing properly my icons started appearing as rectangles. See image: Rectangular icons

    This is on Chrome version 32. I have tested it on Mozilla Firefox, on Chrome on my phone and on Chrome on another computer and it works fine. The weird thing is that I even reinstalled my Windows (including Chrome) and the icons still show as rectangles on a brand new install. This seems to be only on my computer, though I can’t be sure and I would like to fix it if there is a way. Thanks in advance.

    P.S. I’ve just noticed the problem only seems to be on the home page and the search icon in the menu. The icons on the other pages seem okay.

    Hi n4n1!

    Can you post the link to your website so we can test it?

    Best regards,

    Please try to remove the custom.css code and check if the icons start to work again. If yes, please post the css code and I’ll check it. If not please try to update the theme to the latest version (2.4.5) – maybe a theme file is corrupt.

    Best regards,


    Hi, here is the custom CSS code:

    #bbpress-forums div.bbp-search-form { width: 100%; }
    #bbpress-forums #bbp-search-form #bbp_search { width: 75%; }

    I tried removing it and nothing changed. It was meant to fix the way the search box for the bbpress forums looked and it did. When I removed it only the search box for the forums went to its previous state.

    Could this have something to do with the fonts? Do you have the same problem when viewing the website in Chrome? Maybe it’s just me for some reason. I will try updating the theme, I hope nothing crashes.


    The update did it. It’s all fixed now! Thank you very much for the great support and for the awesome theme!
