Forcing incompatible theme to work with Buddypress
Hello! I would like to force my incompatible theme to work with Buddypress even though the theme author has said it won’t.
Here’s the extra info required first before explaining further:
WP-directory or subdomain install? Not sure…
WP-root or in a subdirectory? Root.
Upgrade from a previous version of WP? If so, from which? Yes, the one directly previous to 3.8 however buddypress was just installed a day before upgrading.
WordPress functioning properly? Yes.
Version of BP are you running? 1.9.1
Upgrade from a previous version of BP? No
8. Do you have any plugins other than BuddyPress installed and activated?Yes – Advanced custom fields, askimet, author image, better wordpress recent comments, dashboard notepad, exclude pages from navigation, fancier author box, go – responsive pricing & compare tables, google analytics for wordpress, jetpack, nrelate related content, roster slider (and slidervilla taxonomies addon), rumbletalk chat, s2 member framework (and pro addon), User bookmarks, visual form builder (and magic addon), W3 total cache, widget logic, widgets on pages, wp google fonts, WP Show IDs.
Standard BuddyPress themes or customized themes? Standard – have not selected a theme, could not find anywhere to select any kind of theme at all.
Modified the core files in any way? No
Have any custom functions in bp-custom.php? No
No bbPress, but will add in future.
List of any errors in your server’s log files. No errors.
Hosting? Self hosted on husband’s server.
Is your server running? Linux
Basic Trouble Shooting:
I already know that the theme will not work with buddypress – they’ve advised someone of this in their comments section.
I have reverted to standard WP theme, and after doing so, buddypress profile pages etc. will appear, but using the Solitudo theme, it shows “archive” as the title.
Saw this post: http://buddypress.org/support/topic/page-title-all-say-archive/ and my husband will look into that the wp_title() function
Have also contacted theme author to find out where we can get started to modify the theme to accept buddypress, waiting to hear back.
In the mean time, any tips, tricks, advice you can provide my husband as far as forcing my theme to work with buddypress? Or are any of the additional plugins I have installed potentially causing a problem? I can deactivate all plugins and then reactivate, but I’m new to WP and not sure if doing so would re-set all of the settings for each plugin.
Activating a different theme and then reactivating my solitudo child theme, for instance, caused some settings to disappear that I have to re-do now so I’d rather avoid that if you know for sure one of the listed plugins causes an issue.
Thanks for any advice you can give! Warm regards!
