No sidebars?

    Hi,
    i’m trying to install Buddypress for a friend. We were both under the impression that BP now works with all themes and it does look OK but there’s no sidebars.

    The theme has it’s own unlimited sidebar options which we were hoping to use but we’re just getting full width pages throughout.

    Is this common, is there an easy way to fix it?

    thanks alot

    Isn’t it up to the theme author to decide if they want to include a sidebar?

    No the theme has sidebars a plenty with unlimited custom sidebar creation too. Buddpyress pages are full width with no way of adding sidebars for some reason.

    I thought BP was supposed to work out of the box with themes now?

    @fpats BP works with nearly all WordPress themes. It doesn’t work perfectly in themes with proprietary templating systems but there’s a solution for that.

    You can ask the theme author for a buddypress.php file which has the WP with the_title and the_content among the theme’s template tags for that specific theme. Upload that buddypress.php to the root of your theme folder in server and all BuddyPress components will use that file to autogenerate content.
