Can Groups, Blogs, Members home page use Member Theme?
I just started integrating our formerly non MU wordpress single install theme into MU / Buddypress…. the goal is to have our content and blog maintain the look and feel of our theme( http://tinyurl.com/cl4f62 ) with it’s own specific headers and footers (different than those used by buddpress-home and buddypress-members) while having the community / member pages maintain the classic BP look and feel including the headers and footers usedâ€¦. We are going to place the standard BP home page in a directory such as example.com/community â€¦..
I have modified the buddypress-members theme to match our colors used by our main site theme ( http://tinyurl.com/d968ow ) which was easy enough….. butâ€¦.
The issue I’m having is that while example.com/members/tom uses the buddypress-member theme, the BuddyPress parent categories such as groups, blogs, members, etc. (example.com/members/) do not. These pages try to use our home theme â€¦. ( http://tinyurl.com/ajh7w7 ) ….
Is there any way to force /groups, /members, /blogs, etc. to use the buddypress-members theme as opposed to using whatever theme the main site / index uses?
The reason why I ask is because if you use an existing theme that you are converting to work with BP, this requires dropping in plugin-template.php and all other related BP files……… these then try to pull header.php / footer.php, etc…. which then pulls the main / home theme’s headers and footers not the standard headers / footers used by the buddypress-home theme or buddpress-members theme…
In my case, my home / main theme is a corporate theme and the header is different than the standard BP header we are using in the “community” part of the site or on member, group, blog, etc. pages……..
I can import the headers I DO want to use from buddypress-home and then rename them to header2.php and then change the header / footer calls in the BP specific componentsâ€¦. But am wondering if all of that is necessaryâ€¦. Especially if I have to upgrade code in the future as BP evolvesâ€¦..
Any feedback appreciatedâ€¦..!
