    @thesurfinstitute We’re all volunteers here living in different time zones and it just happened that your post got overlooked. A polite bump is acceptable.

    You need to fix the alignment of the BP template files with that of your WP theme http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/sliding-door

    Let me take a look and I’ll get back to you on solution.

    @thesurfinstitute Following is the simplest way to make your theme compatible:

    If you’ve 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. (make sure Sliding Door Child theme is activated before you run this)

    A. Copy your theme’s header.php and Save As > header-buddypress.php

    Open up header-buddypress.php and at the bottom of the file, below all other code, add this:
    `

    `

    Save file.

    B. Create a BLANK sidebar-buddypress.php and add this line only

    `

    `

    Save file.

    C. Upload header-buddypress.php and sidebar-buddypress.php to wp-content/themes/sliding-door-child/

    D. Style modifications for BP templates – you might want to use some or all of styles listed in this page http://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/theme-dev-bp-template-pack-walkthrough-twenty-ten-bp-1-5/3/

    I totally understand and was hoping it just got overlooked, as it did… No worries!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! My schedule recently got very busy… Hoping I can spend some time on this in the next few days. I will let you know how I do &/or if I need any further assistance.

    Again, THANKS!!

    @thesurfinstitute you’re welcome. You’re lucky that the HTML structure of the Sliding Doors theme made it compatible with the 2nd method for BP compatibility :-)
    Marking this as resolved.
