Any php I add to functions.php in my theme breaks the page. Has anyone added custom functions as above?
BP ignores other default files (like header.php) when you add a custom one to a theme, but apparently not the same for functions.php.
What then is the best way to add php functions (like shortcode) to a child theme?
You can upload a custom header image right from the admin UI. In the Appearance section there is a Custom Header option.
To move the search try adding this to your CSS:
You can also hide the ‘Visit’ menu item with the following CSS:
That didn’t work for me either but your syntax correction helped. This is what I finally got to work.
<?php __( previous_post_link( ‘« %link’), ‘buddypress’ ) ?>
<?php __( next_post_link( ‘%link »’ ), ‘buddypress’ ) ?>
Using ‘_post_link’ instead of ‘_posts_link’. Also ‘%link’ displays the prev/next post name hyperlinked to the post.
You can see an example here: http://nashvillesharepoint.com/blog/2009/11/11/community-dev-testing-bp-plugins/
@Jeff, you are right, the previous_post_link( ) and next_post_link( ) function calls were removed from single.php on the testbp.org site and they are in the stock download. Seems like they don’t return anything, though.
Are you saying they work in the stock download? They don’t work for me using the default theme.
These are the two calls in that div:
<?php next_posts_link( __( ‘« Previous Entries’, ‘buddypress’ ) ) ?>
<?php previous_posts_link( __( ‘Next Entries »’, ‘buddypress’ ) ) ?>
What is the proper syntax for the previous_post_link( ) and next_post_link( ) function calls?
Do I have this correct?

I think you mean weddingwire.com
This is functionality I am looking for too.
Thanks – We actually had other issues due to the fact we are using IIS7 on windows server 2008. This article has info: http://mu.wordpress.org/forums/topic/12659
Thanks DJPaul. How do I select a theme for the user blogs?
Manual user approval (BPv1.1)
Found the problem… Editor added a path to the php menu links during a ‘save as’.
I have my CSS working by adding it to custom.css but it is only working for Home and Blog… I thought v1.1 was going to allow me to use only one theme for home/member/forums.
Here is where the location of CSS for thsee two areas:
What am I doing wrong?
What I did wrong was to not delete (or rename) the wp-content/bp-themes/ folder. Now using same custom CSS for both.
The problem is where you are placing the theme folders. Can you just try this?
The home theme here: /wp-content/themes/bphome
The member theme here: /wp-content/bp-themes/bpmember
Like DJPaul said, just use the stock themes until you can get the site to display properly. v.1.1 is still just a release candidate though and not recommended for production.
Just move bpmember to /wp-content/bp-themes/bpmember.
bphome stays in the themes folder.
From the screenshot it looks as though you have renamed “bp-themes” to “-bp-themes” so you will need to fix that.
There are two sets of files you need to work with… One for the home page and main blog and another for the member/group/admin pages.
The home theme is found here: /wordpress-mu/wp-content/themes/bphome
The member theme is here: /wordpress-mu/wp-content/bp-themes/bpmember
If you don’t have a member theme in the above location, upload it there. The bpmember base.css is similar and you will have to make most of your CSS tweaks to both. v1.1 uses only one theme for both. More info:http://buddypress.org/blog/news/the-new-buddypress-theme-architecture/
Look at Community Blogs for BuddyPress (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bp-community-blogs). You can turn a normal blog into a Community Blog or a Group Blog.
