Making Member Theme Header Match Main Theme

    Hi,

    I’d like the Profile page in the member theme to have the same header and navigation as the rest of my main WPMu navigation (where I don’t use the BP theme). I’m trying to edit header.php in member-themes/buddypress-theme to make this happen, but I’m running into problems. Does anyone have suggestions?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Basically, I think I’m having problems with paths — the buddypress member page isn’t accessing the css/image files for the main theme. For some reason, I’m having trouble getting my head around this.

    Here is the actual error that I’m seeing:

    Warning: include(C:xampplitehtdocs/wp-content/member-themes/buddypress-member/options.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:xampplitehtdocswp-contentmember-themesbuddypress-memberheader.php on line 53

    Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening 'C:xampplitehtdocs/wp-content/member-themes/buddypress-member/options.php' for inclusion (include_path='.;C:xampplitephppear') in C:xampplitehtdocswp-contentmember-themesbuddypress-memberheader.php on line 53

    And here is a screenshot

    I want the header to match the header on this

    WordPress detects the currently enabled theme’s root and css directories via the bloginfo(‘template_directory’) and bloginfo(‘stylesheet_directory’) functions.

    To call the css and images from the home theme in a member theme template you would have to hard code the path references as “/wp-content/themes/buddypress-home/styles.css”.

    Personally, as hard coding is generally a bad idea, I would suggest simply copying the elements you wish to use from the home theme directory to the member theme directory and reference them the usual way.
