I am building a fresh BuddyPress site and am still at the testing phase. I have the luxury of blowing it out and starting all over. I have tried probably 20+ combinations of BuddyPress 1.5.6, BuddyPress 1.6 RC-1, “BuddyPress Ready” themes, standard themes + template pack, bbPress lite set up via BP install as group forums, bbPress 2.1 set up as sitewide forums during the BuddyPress install, and bbPress 2.1 set up as BP group forums but not through the BP setup.. Whew… This makes my head hurt
My current, and I hope final combination:
BuddyPress 1.6 RC-1
Genesis Framework + BuddyPress Theme Pack *
bbPress 2.1 Installed after the BuddyPress Install and set up to support BP group forums
*(I tried their GenesisConnect plugin, but get closer to right by using the BuddyPress Theme Pack
All is well except I need the group forums to go full width (no sidebar). If I could tweak some code and make the sidebar for group forums go away I would be a happy camper.
