    Is there a simple way to change the template (or a plugin that will allow the “appearance” dashboard show templates? I am trying to simply change the page headings for home page and blog page– now they read “socialnetwork”. Thank you for any help!

  • You mean top left of theme? That’s an image – you’ll find it in /wp-content/bp-themes/buddypress-member/images/logo.gif.

    Just changing the image doesnt seem to work because the image gets clipped. I guess some CSS also has to be changed. Does anyone know what code needs to be tweaked to affect the logo?

    The image is located in two places:

    /wp-content/themes/bphome/images/logo.gif

    /wp-content/bp-themes/bpmember/images/logo.gif

    There shouldn’t be any clipping if you create the new image with the same dimensions as the existing image: 214×29 pixels.

    Thats true, however my new logo image needs to be larger. What would I need to change to avoid clipping the new image? Thanks.

    Kunal17–

    You also have to change the CSS file (base.css) so that it \\\”knows\\\” how large your logo is … I changed mine to be slightly taller than the stock logo for BuddyPress. Here is the code and what I did … this is just below the comment for HEADER:

    #header {

    padding: 25px 20px;

    }

    #header h1 a {

    text-indent: -999em;

    background: url(../images/logo.gif) top left no-repeat;

    overflow: hidden;

    width: 214px;

    height: 55px;

    display: block;

    float: left;

    Try that and see if it works. Good luck!

    Thanks Kitwit, Ill try this out. I guess you have to change this for both the member and home theme?

    Kitwit, that worked thanks. However, I am still confused about where the bpmember theme is used and where the bphome theme is used. Right now, I just changed the base.css files for both themes.

    Hey, Actually I did find it after I posted the last message. Thanks. All this time, I thought the member theme was for individual blogs.

    Hi, I had the same problem, I solved it, but I notice that when I go to the members, group and blogs areas the logo is still cut off. I suppose that I should make the same change somewhere else, but… where?

    Thank you for any help! :-)

    Posting a new request for support in a thread that is marked resolved is not the best way to get help. Why? Because those of us who offer help tend to skip over resolved posts and look for threads that need our attention.

    If you’re still having an issue, then please start a new thread. Here are some support guidelines to get you started: http://buddypress.org/forums/topic.php?id=2676
