    @uberche

    Just created a child theme for my Buddypress and when I copy the “Members” folder over (I want to style the user profile section) I lose all my Activity stream. If I remove the folder I lose all formatting but the Activity stream comes back again.

    BP: 1.8.1
    WP: 3.6.1

    Thoughts?

    A child theme of bp-default? Make sure you have copied the files and folders over exactly. So for example:

    bp-default/members/single/messages/compose.php

    gets copied to

    your-child-theme/members/single/messages/compose.php

    I just copied the entire members folder exactly as is into my child theme’s base folder.

    /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/members
    to
    /wp-content/themes/Buddy English/members

    All folders and files inside were not changed.

    What happens if you replace the capital letters in your theme name with lowercase and remove the space ( replacing it with a hyphen for instance ) ?

    I don’t think either is allowed…

    If you look in developer tools* you will see that the blank space is replaced…

    *Chrome, Safari or Internet Explorer, or use Firebug with Firefox, or Opera’s Dragonfly

    I always use the files from
    /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-templates/bp-legacy/buddypress

    And would put them in:
    /wp-content/themes/BuddyEnglish/buddypress/

    never ever spaces never ever caps, *nix has never allowed spaces in file names it is only MS Windows/DOS that broke that rule; names in *nix are case sensitive so File.php is different from file.php

    OK, changed it to

    /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/members
    to
    /wp-content/themes/buddyenglish/members

    Still no activity showing up.

    If I put
    /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-templates/bp-legacy/buddypress

    into

    /wp-content/themes/BuddyEnglish/buddypress/

    it doesn’t see any of the files it seems as the layout is the same as if I don’t copy any of the files over.

    I took

    /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-templates/bp-legacy/buddypress/members

    and moved it to

    /wp-content/themes/buddyenglish/members

    and it works now, had to do more work on the layout as it wasn’t setup properly at all but it’s working anyway and looking OK.

    Thanks all.
