    Have you styled your plugins.php files in your theme?

    If the plugins hard include the template files instead of utilizing plugins.php it’s a little more work. You have to edit each plugin.

    Hi – thanks for the replies. Here’s where I’ve gotten so far:

    The BP Resume Page is fine now (I played with its css a bit) . http://wpohio.com/members/ameeker/resume/

    But the BuddyPress Portfolio are still looking and acting completely separate from the theme.
    http://wpohio.com/members/ameeker/portfolio/
    http://wpohio.com/portfolio/

    I just can’t get my head around where to start with it yet. I’m a little bit new to BuddyPress, so I’d like to understand how the BP specific plugins can work in conjunction with the themes and BP. The BP plugin authors have the option to build out their templating and css independent of the theme (of course, that makes sense)? So then if I’m working with one of those (like this BP Portfolio), how do I retain the templating and CSS that is important to the plugin while telling the plugin to use the overarching BuddyPress theming of the theme? It’s not JUST a matter of CSS changes in the plugin, I assume?

    Kind of talking outloud here, I know. Not even sure of the question to ask, to be honest!
