    Hi,

    I am currently trying to adjust Buddypress to the theme I use, and have copy- pasted the page.php lines to header-buddypress.php, sidebar-buddypress.php & footer-buddypress.php.

    The occuring problem is that the buddypress content appears under my footer and sidebar,
    what should I change?

    site: http://www.dailyblog.nl
    (I´m using the latest wordpress, buddypress and elist theme (Elegant Themes) )

    Thanks!

    @Dailyblog It could very well be just one or two missing, extra or misplaced closing div/s. http://validator.w3.org/ usually can help you ID extra/missing divs.

    If you need further assistance, it would help if you open up your WP theme’s header.php,copy source code, go to pastebin.com, post code there, click submit and post the generated pastebin URL here. Do the same for elitist theme’s footer.php, index.php and page.php.

    Hi Mercime,

    Thanks for the advice. I´ve checked the validator but could not find anything in regards to divs.

    Here are my Theme´s (Elist) header.php, footer.php, sidebar.php & page.php:

    Header.php:
    Footer.php:
    Sidebar:

    Page.php:

    I´ve copy-pates the page.php html to create header-buddypress.php, footer.php & sidebar.php.
    Maybe that´s whats wrong? Hope you can help :-)

    Starting from scratch:

    1. Open up your theme’s header.php with text editor and Save As > header-buddypress.php. Open up header-buddypress.php and at the very bottom of the file below all code, add:
    `

    `
    Save file.

    2. Open up your theme’s sidebar.php and Save As > sidebar-buddypress.php. Open up sidebar-buddypress.php and make the following revisions:
    a) at the very top of the file before all other code, add:
    `

    `
    b) at the very bottom of the file below all other code, add:
    `

    `
    Save file.

    3. You do not need a footer-buddypress.php for this theme compatibility.

    4. Check out the styling “corrections” done in child theme of Twenty Ten to rein in some styles added in the compatibility process http://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/theme-dev-bp-template-pack-walkthrough-twenty-ten-bp-1-5/3/.
