Help with Step 3 – ClearVideo theme – BP Template Pack

    Just looking for some honest help here. I don’t understand Step 3 of the BuddyPress Template Pack installation.

    I’m using a template from Solostream.com. It’s called WP-ClearVideo. I’ve done a lot of things to the template so far on my own. Once I got into the BuddyPress install, I realized its alignment within my site was off. I downloaded the BuddyPress Template Pack plugin, and as I said, stalled at Step 3. The instructions make no sense. I know where to go to find some of the things mentioned, but the explanations of what to do, etc., are poor.

    Does anyone have any ideas or directions they can offer? I’ve searched Youtube, this site…you name it, for tutorials and how to’s.

    Thanks,

    Eddie

    @floridabeautiesinhd Open up your clearvideo theme’s header.php file; copy all code; paste to pastebin.com; click submit; and post the generated URI here. Do the same for your theme’s index.php, page.php, sidebar.php and footer.php files.

    Based on the HTML structure of your theme, you need to use the first option, i.e., change 16 template files within the 6 BP folders transferred to your wp-clearvideo theme folder in server during the compatibility process.

    If you’ve previously changed any of the BP template files in your theme folder in server, replace all of them for a clean slate by deleting the 6 BP folders – /activity, /blogs, /forums, /groups, /members, and /registration – then re-run Appearance > BP Compatibility.

    Download the 6 clean BP folders to your computer hard drive.

    A. At the top of each of those 16 template files I linked to above, replace
    `

    `

    with the following:
    `
    <?php
    global $wp_query;
    $postid = $wp_query->post->ID;
    if ( get_post_meta( $postid, ‘post_featpages’, true ) == “Yes” ) { ?>

    <?php if ( function_exists('yoast_breadcrumb') ) { yoast_breadcrumb('

    ‘); } ?>

    <div class="post clearfix" id="post-main-“>

    `

    Then, in each of 16 files, you’d like to change the BP Templates’ page title’s header tag from `

    ` or `

    ..

    ` to `

    // Titles Of Respective BP Page Templates //

    `, just watch out when you do this in the /activity/index.php page.

    Save files.

    B. At the bottom of the same 16 files, replace:
    `

    `

    with the following (except for registration/register.php):
    `

    `

    with the following for registration/register.php:
    `

    jQuery(document).ready( function() {
    if ( jQuery(‘div#blog-details’).length && !jQuery(‘div#blog-details’).hasClass(‘show’) )
    jQuery(‘div#blog-details’).toggle();
    jQuery( ‘input#signup_with_blog’ ).click( function() {
    jQuery(‘div#blog-details’).fadeOut().toggle();
    });
    });

    `

    Save files.

    C. Upload the 6 BP folders containing the 16 files you’ve just revised to your server wp-content/themes/wp-clearvideo/

    D. Copy the style modifications made in BP Twenty Ten at http://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/theme-dev-bp-template-pack-walkthrough-twenty-ten-bp-1-5/3/ and paste to your theme’s stylesheet. Adjust to taste.

    Wow! This is Chinese arithmetic to me! I need a while to digest this and understand it.

    Thank you so much for doing this. I’ll get back to you asap.

    Sorry for getting back to you so late. Because of other obligations, I was only able to get back to this project this weekend.

    Your instructions were great! Thank you. I took my time and read through everything to make sure I understood it properly. My BuddyPress profile, activity, messages, etc., are all lining up correctly.

    Registration isn’t appearing, though. In my BuddyPress Pages setup area, whatever I designate for “Register” simply takes me to my home page. I followed your directions closely…specifically for the “registration/register.php.

    I was confused about these instructions. “Then, in each of 16 files, you’d like to change the BP Templates’ page title’s header tag from

    or

    ..

    to

    // Titles Of Respective BP Page Templates //

    , just watch out when you do this in the /activity/index.php page.” Does this have anything to do with my Registration problem?

    @floridabeautiesinhd didn’t know you had a follow-up question. You will be redirected to the home page if you go to your site’s register page when you’re still logged in. So log out first to check out the register page.

    Hi, I have the exact same problem. I have installed the pinboard theme and bp-template-pack. But, I’m having problem understanding step 3 in bp-template-pack? I don’t know how to modify the 16 files in the 6 folders that’re being copied to the theme. Please help. Beforehand Thanks!

    @buddies I presume you’re referring to the Pinboard theme from WP Theme Repo? Please start a new topic for that theme.
