    Hello! Just wondering if I could get some help getting started on converting the BuddyPress Template files to match the ones of my theme :)
    I’m not sure if BuddyPress is compatible (or looks good lol) with a full width screen setup so I’ve got both codes.
    Any assistance would be great…Thanks a bunch! :D

    Normal Page:
    <?php

    global $shortname;

    get_header();

    ?>


    post_excerpt ) && get_post_meta( $post->ID, $shortname.’_show_excerpt’, true ) == ‘on’ ) { ?>

    Full Page:
    <?php

    /* Template Name: Full Width */

    global $shortname;

    get_header();

    ?>


    post_excerpt ) && get_post_meta( $post->ID, $shortname.’_show_excerpt’, true ) == ‘on’ ) { ?>

    Download the BP template files transferred to your active WP theme folder in server down to your computer hard drive.

    We start with /activtiy/index.php – open with text editor. At the top of the file, replace
    `

    `

    with
    <?php
    global $shortname;
    get_header();
    ?>


    then at the bottom of the activity/index.php file replace
    `

    `

    with
    `

    2 quick questions…
    Should I assume that full width pages are a no go? :D lol
    and will the changes finally show once all the pages have been edited?

    Full-width page – replace top of activity/index.php (as I noted above) with
    `<?php
    global $shortname;
    get_header();
    ?>


    `

    Replace the bottom of activity/index.php (as noted above) with
    `

    The changes will show up after saving the revisions and uploading to server

    Mercime! Thanks again for the help.
    I currently have the buddypress pages up and running, but have run into a few problems with the formatting of the page (Item lengths, button locations, so on…). Do I have to adjust the width for each item on the page seperate or is there one line in the stylesheet making their width all the way across the page?
    Also, while my sidebar is displayed, it is being pushed under all of the buddypress content as opposed to next to it, any suggestions?
    If you’d like to see the site I’d gladly show, I just don’t want it public until it’s done
    Let me know if there is anything you may be able to help with :)

    oh and uhhh…yea the most annoying issue is my avatars are really small and the cropbox is not fully on the image lol…just a thought

    anyone have any advice on my sidebar being below my buddypress activities and content? It’s only on the buddypress pages
    I’ve been troubleshooting for a good amount of time now and have run out of ideas :)

    @tomcos Double-checked source code of your other regular pages. You need to wrap content with additional `

    `which will pull in width so that the sidebar will go to correct position

    Therefore at the top of the activity/index.php replace
    `

    `

    with
    `


    `

    and replace bottom of the file
    `

    `

    with
    `
