Missing the Obvious With Themes

    Okay, this is driving me just a wee bit batty.

    I’m tweaking BP to work within a 3rd party theme I bought. It automatically is tweaking the groups page and the members page to use the color scheme of the install:

    http://doorqtech.com/groups

    http://doorqtech.com/members

    But now, how do I get it to do the same for say a profile?

    Consider: http://doorqtech.com/members/jodyw1 which is using the default BP theme.

    How do I get the member profiles to pull colors and formatting the same way as the member directory pages? I haven’t figured out how and where it’s pulling stuff. I’m sure it’s both obvious and not quite as easy as I’m thinking, but except when it isn’t, it’s fun figuring this out.

    you should adapt the default member theme in your one,

    editing css and if needed the code

    If I modify “Custom.CSS” so that it includes the color scheme from the rest of the site, is that going to work?

    if you put a css file called site-wide.css in your home theme in the folder css, it will load across themes.

    For example: /wp-content/themes/my-theme/css/site-wide.css

    This will basically let you apply styles to both your regular home blog theme and the member theme currently active.

    Wow no way? Crap I just spent two days modifying all of the CSS from every little plugin and file! Arg haha!

    Does site-wide.css get loaded last in order, so that it can over-ride any of the previous stylings?

    Andy, I found if I drop that into “wp-content/member-themes/buddypress-member/css/custom-components/” it loads as you say.

    It’s changed things somewhat … http://doorqtech.com/members/jodyw1/… but I still have to figure out how to get to look like this: http://doorqtech.com/groups
