    Hey guys,

    first: I use buddypress 1.8.1 and WordPress 3.6. So I got two Problems. I created the the buddypress-pages on full width and also changed the template-page in WordPress, but Buddypress is still using the standard-template. Someone knows the Problem?

    The second problem is, that the little loader.gif is not showing when clicking a change button. Can someone help here?

    Have you checked the Codex Documentation ? I suggest you read the guides on theme templates as these will help your understanding and allow you to ask more detailed questions that we can help with.

    I created the the buddypress-pages on full width and also changed the template-page in WordPress, but Buddypress is still using the standard-template. Someone knows the Problem?

    I assume you mean the pages created in the setup routine for BP such as ‘activity’, ‘members’ etc these are placeholders only you can not do anything in them except set the page title.

    ‘<i>changed the template-page in WordPress</i>’
    You need to be clearer on what you mean here!

    ‘<i>standard template</i>’
    Again not sure to what you are referring here, BP in theme compatibility mode uses page.php, unless you provide other named templates but this is all explained in the template compatibility themeing guides written for users to help them out with just this sort of issue.

    As for the loader gif it’s impossible to say, you haven’t told us the theme in use, linked to the site, or shown any code to work from thus it’s a complete guess as to what may be happening.

    As always if there are issues first test is activate known good theme such as twentytwelve and see if things work in that theme then you know it’s a theme issue.

    Hey Hugo,

    yeah – my english isn’t the best one. So step by step.

    You’re right I mean the crated pages like ‘activity’, ‘members’ etc. I have two different page-tempaltes. The standard-template also known as page.php and and wide-page.php. WordPress suppots switching the themes for each crated Site and all BP connected Pages got wide-page.php but still loading page.php

    For the second thing: as provided since BP 1.7 there is no need for a theme migration – so buddypress loads the default theme “bp-legacy”. Also on twentytwelve the problem with the loader.gif exists.

    And yes, I didn’t posted a link because we saved the site with a htaccess at the moment.

    @julianwagner if you want all your BuddyPress pages to be full-width, the simplest and only thing you have to do (save probably some minor CSS tweaks) is to create a new file named buddypress.php

    Then open up your theme full-width template then copy all code within. Paste the code into your buddypress.php file (remove Template: xxxxx) then upload buddypress.php to your theme’s folder in server.

    As would have reading those guides I mentioned, but assuming you did do that, if not please do try to when you have a moment as the reason we write those guides are to attempt to provide answers to these sorts of questions, and help people understand the options they have in dealing with custom themes. :)

    @hnla Hey Hugo, so even now I don’t know where to find the guides, but here we go with the online website: http://www.gameagain.de/aktivitaeten/
