    @modemlooper

    ok I created a child theme that has a page template for a widgetized home page.

    Download here: http://bit.ly/aBgYo4

    To install:

      Unzip and upload bp-widget folder to your WP themes folder and activate.

      Create a new page called Home choose Buddypress Widget Theme as the page template.

      Then in side bar settings >> reading choose the home page you created as the static front page.

      Go to widgets and add widgets to the columns

    This is the exact default BP 1.2 theme with a custom page and functions to allow a widgetized page.

    report bugs below

    As soon as I get a chance I’ll fix the column issue but you need to give me more info on what browser and version you are using.

    @modemlooper Thanks for answering, the column height issue seems to happen on all modern browsers and OS. Don’t you have this problem ?

    I use latest Firefox under Ubuntu and a friend tested on IE 7 and 8 under Windows XP.

    Sorry to bother @modemlooper, I was just wondering if you had time to have a look at the second column cut problem with Thin Wide Thin template ?

    Thanks :-)

    Yes, waiting on the next BP release and then I’ll update the theme in the WP repo. Right now, child themes are getting rejected becasuse the bp-default theme is not meeting WP theme standards.

    Hi @modemlooper, here comes a new BP release. Is there any good news in it which would help to get our problem fixed ? What about the bp-default theme, any improvements ? Thanks.

    I have noticed some stuff has gone from bp 1.2.7 default theme, I hope it does not make the column issue harder to fix. Thanks @modemlooper for letting us know when you will manage to update themes.

    hello. i am using buddy press widget theme, wordpress 3.2.1. and the latest bp version. Can you please tell me how i can fix my main menu navigation? example: when rolling over the drop-down button”stuff” it looks bad – due to the length of text i think? please help. http://nexneurocare.com
    thanks, paul L.

    Hi modemlooper.
    The link for your widgitised from page has gone, but it is almost. 2 years old.
    I want to have a from page widget area so I can put a video on the front page.
    Any chance you can let me have the document or instructions to do this?
    Many thanks.
