    @kooba

    Hi, I’m currently working on website that uses Basic Theme from Elegant Themes.
    I need to fix Buddypress into it, which I partially managed to do, but when I get to
    buddypress pages, layout of my site gets screwed up.

    Site is in Polish, so please click the upper menu button saying “Znajdz fachowca”
    and for example pick “Aktywuj” from dropdown.

    Websites URL: http://fachowabudowa.pl/

    As you can see it crashes websites layout.

    Any idea how I can fix it??

    Will be very grateful for your help.

    THANK YOU

    @kooba initial scan looks like you only need to create two files to fix alignment of BP template files with your WP theme. Open up your theme’s header.php, copy all code, paste code in pastebin.com, click submit, and post the generated URI here. Do the same for your theme’s page.php, index.php, sidebar.php and footer.php files.

    @kooba Confirmed that based on the HTML structure of your theme, you will be only need to create two new files, header-buddypress.php and sidebar-buddypress.php to make the BP templates compatible with your theme.

    If you’ve revised any of the BP template files transferred to your basic theme folder in server during the BP Compatibility process, please delete the 6 BP folders transferred to your basic theme folder in server – /activity, /blogs, /forums, /members, /groups, /register – then re-run Appearance > BP Compatibility again to make sure that you have clean template files.

    @mercime: It’s all much better now, but there’re still some elements of bp sites that are not in right place:

    @kooba and you should be proud of yourself for doing a good job :-)

    == maybe suggest some changes, i’d appreciate it…. I’m sure You could make it even nicer ==

    Flattery will get you everywhere :-) Kidding aside, you should copy over the style changes I mentioned in (D) above to fix the alignment of the other elements as well as remove the list background in the BP template files.

    @kooba ==remove the list background in the BP template files== ?? How to do it??

    I mean removing the small circular images with arrows within, the default style of your theme’s unordered lists. In link D above, copy the styles and then paste it at the bottom of your theme’s style.css file.

    The default BuddyPress theme there is a folder called buddypress/_inc/

    This folder includes a file called global.js. That file controls the appearance of the post submission button. I checked and it doesn’t appear that your theme has that js file. I haven’t done much work with the template pack so can’t say whether or not it has this, but the missing js is why it isn’t loading.

    You could get around this by adding the following to the bottom of your theme’s CSS:
    `#whats-new-options { height: 40px; }`

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks for reply James, I’m using Basic Theme from Elegant Themes, I added buddypress by BP Template Pack.

    Unfortunately the code You’ve given above didn’t help. Any other Ideas??
