    Hello all! I looked to see if this topic existed and couldn’t find it so here it goes. I am trying to use the plugin “BP profile search” and it says I need to insert a line into my BP members directory… I do not have one however. Never had. Did I miss something in the installation process? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanx in advance!

    It says in instruction:
    … open index.php in the buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/members folder, locate this line (line 14) …

    If you’re currently using bp-default theme, then you need to
    - create a child theme of bp-default theme http://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/building-a-buddypress-child-theme/
    - copy the index.php at buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/members/index.php
    - paste that index.php into yourchildthemefolder/members/ folder
    - open up the index.php in members folder and follow installation instructions http://buddypress.org/community/groups/bp-profile-search/
    - upload child theme folder to server and activate

    Thank you for your reply, I believe that’s only if I’m using the buddypress default theme though; I am not. It goes on to say “If you are not using the BuddyPress default theme, you have to insert the BP Profile Search form somewhere in your theme Members page”. I have no such page. I have tried just creating a page and inserting the code ”. This didn’t work of course. Any thoughts?

    The logical question would be, “what theme are you using?”

    I figured it out! It turns out I had to first create a members directory. I used a plugin to that effect. Once it was up and running the BP profile search attached itself to it and Roberts your fathers brother (Bobs your uncle) it all worked like a charm! Thank you for your thoughts mercime!
