    == I am aware that I should copy and rename the former 3 pages in header-buddypress.php etc and match these with the following two theme pages: ==

    @blixus Initial scan of the codes posted does support creating only two files to align structure rather than revising 16 files for your theme. What’s the name of your theme? Did you check if it was already “template-packed” per list near the bottom of this page? -> http://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/wordpress-to-buddypress-theme/

    Thanks for your response. The theme is celebritypress, which is not mentioned in the list you refer to. My site is chicks.nl; I can give you access if needed. Thanks for your help, much appreciated.

    @blixus let’s work on the alignment first. Open up your theme’s header.php file, copy all code, paste into pastebin.com, click submit and post the generated URI here. Do the same for your theme’s page.php, index.php, sidebar.php and footer.php

    @blixus Confirmed that based on the HTML structure of your theme, you will be only need to create two new files, header-buddypress.php and sidebar-buddypress.php to make the BP templates compatible with your theme.

    If you’ve revised any of the BP template files transferred to your celebritypress theme folder in server during the BP Compatibility process, please delete the 6 BP folders transferred to your celebritypress theme folder in server – /activity, /blogs, /forums, /members, /groups, /register – then re-run Appearance > BP Compatibility again to make sure that you have clean template files.

    A. COPY your theme’s header.php and Save As > header-buddypress.php

    Open up header-buddypress.php and at the BOTTOM of the file, below other code contained within, add this:
    `

    `

    Save file.

    B. COPY your theme’s sidebar-single.php file (that’s the file called from your page.php file) and Save As > sidebar-buddypress.php

    Open up the blank sidebar-buddypress.php file and at the very TOP of the file, above all code add this:
    `

    `

    Save file.

    C. Upload header-buddypress.php and sidebar-buddypress.php to your theme folder in server wp-content/themes/celebritypress/ in the same directory where your regular header.php and sidebar.php files are

    D. Final note: Copy the style modifications for some BP elements http://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/theme-dev-bp-template-pack-walkthrough-twenty-ten-bp-1-5/3/ and paste those at the bottom of your theme’s stylesheet, then adjust to taste.

    HI, thanks for this, it looks like I’m almost there, check at http://chicks.nl/bpscreenshot.jpg . As you can see, I seem to have an issue still with the avatars, which have a white edge, any idea how to solve that? I wasn’t able to figure that out through the style template as referred to by you. Thanks very much again.

    @blixus the styling is not coming from BuddyPress. Download Firebug, a Firefox add-on to identify the styles associated with the Avatar i.e., img.avatar in your stylesheet and make revisions as needed.
