Hand-coding widgets into theme OR is there a plugin that remembers the defaults?
I’m running into a hurdle I’m hoping some of the more seasoned WPMU/BP people can help me with. If you’ve set up a BP community, this will likely be a simple fix, so please bear with me.
My problem is that when a new user sets up a blog on my WPMU install, I will have to go into their BP theme and manually set up the widgets in their respective positions so all my users have the same look & feel. This seems kind of crazy to me.
Now, I’ve seen a few posts here saying the widgets will need to be hand-coded into the default theme in order for the widget setup to be the same for all new blogs created. I’ve typically had no problem doing this for the usual WP themes but am at a total loss with the BP theme.
1) Is hand-coding these widgets into my default theme my only option? And, if so, does anyone have any guides on doing this for a non-php guy like myself? I’m lost as to where to start.
2) Are there any plugins out there that will ‘remember’ my widget positions/setup on my default theme and just copy that for each new blog created? This is preferred obviously.
I’m hoping someone can help me out with this. I would be very thankful. Thank you in advance!
