[Resolved] BuddyPress on other Themes – ifeature 4 pro

  • I really like buddypress better than Mingle. However I am using ifeature 4 pro and having an issue getting the pages to display correctly. Any help would be great. I contacted ifeature 4 and they do not have an answer for me either at this point. My pages are showing up as full pages instead of matching my current theme. I have went though step by step (I think) for updating your theme manually like if I was using Twenty Eleven and still no luck. Thanks in advance. The site is http://IndyOwls.com. I have deactivated BP at this time but will be activating it over night if someone wants to take a look at it and help. Thanks

    @indyowls closed your other thread about same issue. Surprised that the theme devs are not providing support for their custom theme, at least to tell you if they don’t know how to do it.

    Let’s see how hard/easy it’ll be to fix alignment of BP pages for ifeature pro. Open up your ifeature theme’s header.php, copy all, and paste into pastebin.com, click submit, and post the generated URL here. Do the same for your theme’s page.php, index.php, sidebar.php and footer.php.

    http://pastebin.com/ScQF2gj1 – header.php

    http://pastebin.com/M8T5s9jE – page.php

    http://pastebin.com/u8sDyisZ – index.php

    http://pastebin.com/dimsDAUY – sidebar.php

    http://pastebin.com/imeRGNxk – footer.php

    not sure if you needed these as well – Thanks so much for your help

    @indyowls I would need pastebin of some other files as well. But if you’re using the ifeatures free theme here http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/ifeature then you won’t need to add any more pastes.

    No I am using the Paid Pro version. Let me know what files you need and I will send them over ASAP
    Thanks for all your hard work.

    If you have the following files (based on the free ifeature theme) open up ifeature theme’s /core/actions/page-actions.php and post code in pastebin.com and do the same with theme’s core/actions/index-actions.php

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

    If you’ve previously changed any of the BP template files in your theme folder, replace all of them for a clean slate by deleting the 6 BP folders in server – /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: http://pastebin.com/h0RCY8rX
    Updated 050812 — Simplified with right sidebar
    `

    <div class="post" id="post-“>

    `

    Save files.

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

    `

    with the following (except for registration/register.php): http://pastebin.com/yqnMPAQD
    Updated: 050812 — Simplified with right sidebar
    `

    `

    with the following for registration/register.php: http://pastebin.com/q7te52hk
    Updated 050812 — Simplified with right sidebar
    `

    `

    Save files.

    C. Upload the 6 BP folders containing the 16 files you revised up to your server wp-content/themes/ifeature/

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

    Ok – I must have done something wrong somewhere so I am going to go though this step by step so you can tell me what I did wrong. Pages are coming up blank. I did this on my other site http://IndyGrapevine.com with a clean install of WP then added the BuddyPress plug in and went though the steps to activate.

    I downloaded to my hard drive the 6 files that you stated above
    wp-content/themes/ifeaturepro/activity, /blogs, /forums, /groups, /members, and /registration

    Then I changed each of the 16 files with the codes that you supplied.
    Then I uploaded those files back to wp-content/themes/ifeaturepro
    went to dashboard and finished with the installation.
    This is a link of one of the new files that I created per your instructions so you can see what I did
    http://pastebin.com/pKDwGDq2

    http://indygrapevine.com is up and running so that you can see that none of the pages except the home page works. Thanks for all your help with this I owe you.

    What I can see from the source code of your BP Pages online – Activity, Members, etc. – is that the old BP template files were not replaced by your revised template files.

    What you can do is to manually delete the 6 BP folders which are currently in server wp-content/themes/ifeaturepro folder then upload the 6 folders with the revised template files to your server wp-content/themes/ifeaturepro/ again

    Ok pages are up and I know that you said I had to and adjust the css file – but the instructions say the childs theme css and I can not find that file. Thanks

    You could add the styles at the bottom of your theme’s style.css file which is located within wp-content/themes/ifeaturepro/css/ – back up your ifreaturepro theme folder to computer hard drive before if/when you upgrade your ifeature pro theme in server.

    Btw, I still see the original BP template files rendering in your site.

    Hi

    I was (still am, but now also frustrated) thrilled to find this walk through of how to set up buddypress on ifeaturepro’s theme.

    I have follow these steps twice, with the same result – some fatal error.

    You can see the result here http://teamrampage.dk/grupper-pa-team-rampage/
    and the code here http://pastebin.com/3nyACcj9

    Could you shed some light on what the issue is here?

    Thx in advance

    Just noticed that I posted an extra period (.) just before ``, please remove it.

    line 127 in your pastebin shows “ have you tried removing that?

    Hi

    Yeah, I tried different combinations of those lines. I then made everything as the tutorial stated when I posted yes-today. Now it looks like this.
    http://pastebin.com/dtEyTY84
    which produces this error

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/t/e/ftp_teamrampagedk/wp-content/themes/ifeaturepro/groups/index.php on line 131

    Hi Mercime and other php gurus :-)

    I figure this is only a small tweak of the code, but I’m unable to fix it as I’m a NooB to wordpress and .php in particular. Do you have any idea about how to fix this issue?
    Sorry to be pushy, I am just really anxious to lauch this buddypress feature to the site I’m building to my son and his like minded friends :-)

    Regards and thx in advance.

    @vus no problem. What I did was to simplify the code to the basics i.e., content with right sidebar. Updated code in this post.

    Thanks Mercime

    That totally did the trick :-D
