Changing HTML in current theme – WP Church Theme
I’m not very familiar with HTML but enough to access it and change it. But I can not seem to figure out what the instructions are telling me to do. When I look at the index.php file I’m confused. Does anyone know a place that has more extensive documentation on how to make buddypress work in a third party theme? Or someone I could hire to just fix it for me? Thank you.

If BuddyPress pages are not aligned correctly, then you may need to modify some of the templates to match your theme’s HTML structure. The best way to do this is to access your theme’s files, via FTP, at:
Open up the page.php file (if this does not exist, use index.php). Make note of the HTML template structure of the file, specifically thetags that surround the content and sidebar.
You will need to change the HTML structure in the BuddyPress templates that you copied into your theme to match the structure in your page.php or index.php file.
There are two methods for making the necessary template changes.
The first method is to locate tho following templates (leave out any folders that you didn’t copy over in Step Two):
Alternatively, you may find it easier to make copies of your theme’s header.php, sidebar.php and footer.php and rename them to header-buddypress.php, sidebar-buddypress.php, and footer-buddypress.php.
Then you can alter the structure of these new template files (header-buddypress.php, sidebar-buddypress.php, and footer-buddypress.php) to resemble your theme’s page.php (or index.php).
