karmatosed replied to the topic My theme is ignoring/overriding Buddypress default css in the forum How-to & Troubleshooting 1 day, 18 hours ago
Are all styles overloading or just some? If just some it could be forcing styles through.
Are you also using BuddyPress 1.7.2 (or 1.7.x)?
However, if it’s all then can you check if the theme has this line in it:
add_theme_support( 'buddypress' );
If no, then can you try with another theme just to see if it’s Avenue that’s being grumpy? Maybe…[Read more]
karmatosed replied to the topic Too many buddypress menu item, how to style the menu? in the forum How-to & Troubleshooting 1 day, 18 hours ago
Hi, unfortunately as each theme is different could you either provide a link or a screenshot (going to be less useful than link) along with what theme you are using?
Menus can be styled but it all depends on what you have to start off what recommendation is made.
If you only want urls you can use profile fields then pull each through to show where you want on the profile.
Once you’ve set up the profile fields in your admin dashboard you can then output like this:
<?php bp_profile_field_data( array('user_id'=>$user_id,'field'=>'twitter' )); ?>
This assumes a profile field called Twitter. You may have to…[Read more]
Lets focus on your site first as each site is different and css / html validation is just a guide due to html5 and css3.
Ultimately the best way is to either save/ print the list and work through each.
You are going to run into some issues where the validator thinks something isn’t valid and it’s a CSS3 technique it doesn’t…[Read more]
karmatosed replied to the topic Group invitations doesn't work (and some other problem) in the forum How-to & Troubleshooting 1 week, 6 days ago
That’s potentially quite a few things maybe going on. So, I’m going to try and strip back to each issue. If you use the default theme with no translation do you get the notification email and status bar?
@Sorensen84 can you confirm you are using the default templates – I think you are from what you say. I’m thinking you are saying that here:
I use the buddypress default template. I got to problems, I hope you can help me solve.
If this is the case then it’s not a custom theme unfortunately @Chouf1.
The next candidate for an issue would be on…[Read more]
karmatosed replied to the topic Custom Slugs Not Working in either wp-config.php or bp-custom.php in the forum How-to & Troubleshooting 1 week, 6 days ago
@praisehim : That sounds a tricky issue. Have you tried removing all plugins if you are able? I ask this as sometimes other plugins can interfere so stripping back to the basic install can be a great starting place.
If that doesn’t work the link that Chouf1 explains how to give us more information. However, it may work and you can find if another…[Read more]
Since BuddyPress 1.7 you don’t only have to use a BuddyPress theme so you can use any theme from http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/search.php?q=buddypress and also http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/. I’d always say ideally you use a theme that’s designed for a community but either option gets you up and running.
Also worth looks…[Read more]
karmatosed replied to the topic SHOWCASE Citizen journalism website with Buddypress back-end in the forum Your BuddyPress 2 weeks, 1 day ago
Cool site, really like to see a magazine format being used like this with BuddyPress. I like how the stories are the feature and it’s a really effective entry point home page.
Sounds to me like some scripting issue. Are you either able to provide a link to see this live or using an inspector in a browser see if there are any scripting errors when you click?
karmatosed replied to the topic How to use BBP&BP functionalities more than once in my site? in the forum How-to & Troubleshooting 2 weeks, 1 day ago
I’m not aware you can use it twice but perhaps you don’t have to. What about having types of groups?
You can do a custom field to indicate type using maybe: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-groups-extras/
Then you can check for type and load a different template, style differently, change language and name.
I’m not sure about…[Read more]
A few questions if that’s ok to try and work out what is going on.
1. Did your theme work for BuddyPress before you updated BuddyPress? If so it could be your theme is causing the issues.
2. What template is being used for the site rendering – is it single.php or page.php or another page?
Admin’s can edit under the WordPress admin panel > Activity.
Aside from that there was this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-edit-activity-stream/ – not sure if that works on current versions though. May be worth trying out on a safe test site (not your live site) to see.
My first suggestion would be to do some user research. If you work there you can probably brain storm what you’d want from the site as a starting point. If you don’t then select 3-4 user types from the range of users that use them. A type can be gender, age, role, capability – something that makes them unique from other types. A simple format…[Read more]
What seems to have happened is you’ve closed a div twice or something similar. That column is now outside the main div which is why it’s dropped below. If you use an inspector (safari/chrome) you can see and I’d suggest going back in and checking what happened div wise.
Are you showing activity on the front or do you use a theme that outputs the activity? Either way – you can remove tabs by editing the template. Which one depends on what you are doing on your site.
For example using the default buddypress/activity/index.php layout:
Comment out / delete until the 2nd:
<!-- .item-list-tabs -->
But, that of…[Read more]

You can use bp-custom.php and change the default sizes there:
define ( 'BP_AVATAR_THUMB_WIDTH', 100 );
define ( 'BP_AVATAR_THUMB_HEIGHT', 100 );
define ( 'BP_AVATAR_FULL_WIDTH', 150 );
define ( 'BP_AVATAR_FULL_HEIGHT', 150 );
This would do global changes though. Should you only want them to be in certain places you can edit templates for…[Read more]
