[Resolved] Integrating Buddypress into On Demand WordPress
I am currently using wordpress On Demand video theme. In order to get what I want out of my website integrating buddypress would be perfect. I was wondering if anyone knows how to go about all of this. I have been looking at some walkthroughs, but I have not been able to complete process. Any help would be awesome.
By walkthrough, you mean this one? http://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/bp-template-pack-walkthrough-level-easy-2/
The last time I checked out an On Demand theme was almost a year ago, but I remember it has a page.php file where you can see the HTML structure you should impose over the BP template files transferred when you went through the compatibility process with BP Template Pack.
@mikeytrooper let’s take it here, better than in my profile update page
== I just have one more question I am looking at the on demand html and I don’t see the style.css I was wondering if you knew if it may be under a different name. ==
Not quite sure what you mean. Go to On Demand theme folder and open page.php with text editor and check HTML structure as I noted in the walkthrough. Your style.css file should also be in that theme folder. Like I mentioned above, last time I tweaked On Demand was a year ago. Though there must have been some major revisions to the template files since then, surely there’s a page.php and style.css file in the folder.
If you want me to check out the structure, copy contents of your theme’s page.php file and paste in http://pastebin.com/ and save. Post the generated URL here.
Hey Mercime again thanks for responding so quickly and helping out. Out my deal….. I fixed the last issue but of course I am confused again!
I am currently trying to finish the add bp component Navigation Links in the Final Steps of the website you sent me. http://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/bp-template-pack-walkthrough-level-easy-2/
If you could check this out you would be saving my life and my computers life because you will prevent me from tossing it out my window.
I am going to paste my header.php in the pastebin.com
My name on the site is Mikeytrooper and the name of the of the post is “On Demand Header”.
Again thanks your the man!
== I am going to paste my header.php in the pastebin.com ==
You’re welcome. But why header.php? The structure you’ll be imposing on the BP template files transferred to your active theme will be coming from page.php
I believe that is what the instructions told me to do. Like I said I really have no idea hahaha I am just going by the step by step instructions I may be totally off.
== that is what the instructions told me to do ==
@mikeytrooper I wrote the walkthrough and it specifically states page.php or index.php, and content of page.php is what I asked you to paste in last paragraph http://buddypress.org/community/groups/how-to-and-troubleshooting/forum/topic/integrating-buddypress-into-on-demand-wordpress/#post-95018
HAHAHAHA! Well there you go. Ugh embarrassing. OK I am going to post the page right now. Thanks again this is probably like working with a hamster.
There is an index.php and the page.php
No worries @mikeytrooper, we’ve all been there before. Post the page.php first and let’s work from there.
EDIT – My bad, now MY face is red. I missed the reason why you wanted to post the header.php — for the navigation links. I can help you there as well.
HAHA no worries at all I should have both the header and page on pastebin.com.
I believe I have it simply under on demand heading and on demand page.
FOR THE TEMPLATE FILES
Open up activity/index.php (one of 13 files transfered by the template pack process to your on demand theme folder)
At top, replace
Right under that, replace heading h3 with h2
At the bottom of the page, replace
Then you do this for the next 12 template files.
Your theme’s block of code for main navigation is from line 94 to 113 in http://pastebin.com/w0cGZvji
If you are using wp_nav_menu feature, you can easily add links to your BP Component pages in Appearances > Menu area.
OK amazing. I have one last question. Everything seems to be working fine except except I am not sure how to make registration enabled. After this everything should be up to go.
For the hundredths time thanks!
Single WP: Settings > General > Membership – check anyone can register
WP Multisite: Network Admin > Settings > Settings > Allow user registration OR Allow user account and blog creation (can’t remember exact words )
Everything is perfect. If I make bank off of this idea you are totally getting a check!
