Site compatibility with Buddypress

    Hi,

    Apparently our site nasconline.com (live, but still in the finishing stages) is not compatible with BuddyPress and we feel it would be an important asset for our Association.

    Our template, One Source by Cremina and Theme Forest, is currently not compatible per the
    designer of the site, We are using WordPress 3.51 and after reading about the new v1.7 coming out
    very soon we decided to install and try to configure 1.7beta2 but we could not find a way to implement anything.

    I had just come across a thread yesterday on the BuddyPress site about how to edit our header, footer, etc. PHP files so that BuddyPress would work but I couldn’t find it today.

    Could someone please give us some directions on how to do this?

    @nasc generally, that would be the case if you were still on BP 1.6.5 or below. BP 1.7 beta and RC versions should automagically insert BP template files into your theme if your theme adheres to the WP templating system otherwise it won’t work.

    One way to resolve this is to create a file named buddypress.php which you would need to upload your theme’s folder in server. buddypress.php should contain the HTML structure of a page with sidebar or full-width (up to you and the theme author) as well as the_title() and the_content()

    As an aside, if you’re going to have bbPress sitewide/group forums, you would need a bbpress.php file as well. Copy the content of the buddypress.php file into bbpress.php and upload the latter into theme’s folder in server as well.

    @mercime,

    Can you look at my site & tell me what I’m doing wrong. I renamed the three files as BP Compat asked…not sure what I need to do.

    @latenightbeeradvocate first, it looks like you’re using an old version of WP/BP since I can only see jQuery 1.7.1 near the footer as the head area is non-existent on that page. What versions of WP/BP are you on?

    If you’re using old WP/BP version, then you need to install, activate the BP Template Pack plugin then go through Appearance > BP Compatibility process. Then you need to change 17 files from the BP templates transferred to your The Style theme folder in server.

    If you have a new installation (not live site yet), you could already use BP 1.7 RC1.
    First delete the 6 BP folders transferred to your theme folder in server if you ran Appearance > BP Compatibility. Then install and activate BuddyPress 1.7 RC 1 and it will automagically render BP pages in your site. If there’s an issue, it’s possible that your theme author made some changes to the templating system. There’s a way to resolve this though..

    Well, I did that and it definitely looks better, but it’s still a bit messed up. Can you look at this page http://latenightbeeradvocate.com/lnba/activity , you’ll see that the menu still got pushed down on the right on this page. Thoughts?

    @latenightbeeradvocate You have hijacked someone else’s thread here, this is considered bad form on tech forums and confusing as a response is still awaited from the OP.

    In future please don’t hijack threads start your own and describe the issues you are having particular to your site.
