Some minor changes (e.g. Groups = Projects)

    Hey everyone!

    I was wondering if there is an easy way to make some minor changes like

    • Groups = Projects
    • Page titles (e.g. Sitewide Activity = Activity)

    because I couldn’t find one.

    Is it possible to create BP child templates and if so where do I store them?
    Because I tried that!

    ? what does that mean? tried what!? You need to be a little more forthcoming with detail otherwise help is hard to give. As per the other thread both I and modemlooper did point you to the BP codex documentation, while not perfect it does have information / guides on working with child themes and how to work with BP theme compatibility templates, have you read those? If so what did you try that failed?

    With BP template approach using ‘pages’ you can change the page titles by simply re-naming the ‘page’ in the WP backend and ensuring you select that page in the BP settings for ‘pages’.

    First of all, thanks for quick responding.
    As I told you before, I’m still a newbie in coding, so please don’t be to harsh with me. ;-)
    If I’d know what in particular I have to do or what I have to look for, I wouldn’t ask.

    Ok…copy, edit, and rename the page.php to buddypress.php so it would be the template for all buddypress pages, got that. It works. But unfortunately that’s not helping me with my problems.

    Let me be more specific:

    I don’t want people to create groups, I want them to create projects.
    So it’s not only the page title I have to change, it’s everything that is group related.
    I guess it’s not that simple, is it? Or can I set a filter in bp-custom.php to achieve that goal. A code snippet would be great. :-)

    About the aria roles: BP (I think) takes these roles from my theme automatically. Just creating a buddypress.php and making some changes doesn’t work. I can’t just change these roles because that would mean I have to change my theme div roles. So it’s not that simple. How can I set a filter to get rid of the aria roles in bp divs?

    <div id=”item-header” role=”complementary”>
    <div id=”subnav” class=”item-list-tabs no-ajax” role=”navigation”>
    <div id=”item-body” role=”main”>

    What if I want to change a specific bp-file?
    So far I found some files I like to change but I still have no clou where I have to contain them after editing. Do I put them also in the plugin folder like bp-custom.php?

    Still learning ;-)
