Getting Buddypress to look right on my theme

  • I use Sansation theme and have Buddypress installed and running, but it looks bad and is improperly formatted. I think I’m stuck on the part pasted below. If anyone has more coding knowledge than I do, how difficult are these instructions? How long should it take a programmer to do this?

    If BuddyPress pages are not aligned correctly then you will need to modify some of the templates to match your theme’s HTML structure. The best way to do this is to FTP to your theme’s files at:

    /home/content/m/g/e/mgelblum/html/wp-content/themes/Sansation/

    Then 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 the

    tags 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. The files that you need to edit are as follows (leave out any folders you have not copied over in step two):

    /activity/index.php
    /blogs/index.php
    /forums/index.php
    /groups/index.php
    /groups/create.php
    /groups/single/home.php
    /groups/single/plugins.php
    /members/index.php
    /members/single/home.php
    /members/single/plugins.php
    /registration/register.php
    Once you are done matching up the HTML structure of your theme in these template files, please take another look through your site. You should find that BuddyPress pages now fit inside the content structure of your theme.
