Been troubleshooting an issue for the past week and finally found the problem. It was the above suggested code. DOH!!!
While the above suggested code worked to fix the alignment issues, it completely broke the forum. I didn't realize this because I wasn't doing any testing or posting. However, I tried to post a test reply and got this weird color chart. I first asked for help at the phpBB forum and they thought it was in the header ( you can see the discussion here and a picture of this weird color chart... https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... &t=2176003
). Then, using WP-United plugin, I disconnected the forum from the WordPress blog. Everything worked again so I thought it was something with the WP-United plugin and posted over there but hadn't heard anything back. In the meantime, I tried switching themes and when I switched off of Suffusion it worked! Hmm? So, I went back to Suffusion and it stopped working again. I then decided to try taking out the recommended code above to see what would happen and it worked fine the code removed (but the alignment problems were back). I put the code back in and it stopped working again and I get the same weird color chart like in the picture I attached at the phpBB forum.
I have put it back to the "broken" state to let you guys look at it if you wouldn't mind. Maybe just something in the code above needs "tweaked". I have created a test account for the forum so you can see for yourself...
I have verified that if I go to the forum "page" in WordPress and say no sidebars (with the jquery code above removed, that it DOES work. I may end up going that route (with no sidebars) but thought you might like to take a look at this to see if there is a simple fix as I may like to have the sidebars and this might help somebody else in the future.
