    Hi, wondering if someone could help me please?

    Currently in my sidebar on my BuddyPress website I have the members widget active. If possible could someone explain to me how I can format this differently or even point me to the file that controls the Members widget?

    I have an ok knowledge of XHTML and CSS however I’m new to WordPress MU and Buddypress so a little out of my comfort zone. I have bought the BuddyPress for Idiots book but it doesn’t mention how to do this.

    I have included an image on this site to show you how I would like it to look. http://bit.ly/cLtLcc

    Many Thanks :)

    Do you want the “Recently Active Members Widget” instead? It has the layout you’re looking for.

    I dont want the Recently Active Members Widget on the website. I was hoping there was a way i could make the Members and also the Groups widget to look like the Recently Active Members Widget. I you know what i mean :)

    Sure. So you can do two things:

    1. Use CSS to style the members widget to look like the recent active widget (just copy/update the existing CSS)
    2. Clone the recent active widget into your child theme’s functions.php file and change the call it make to be like the members widget

    Changing the CSS is probably the easiest, just set anything you don’t want displayed to display:none and it will disappear.

    Cloning is the cleanest and can be easily shared back to the community for other people trying to do the same thing. ;)
