I figured it out. Thanks for pointing me there.
Ok, I think I finally figured out how to do the bp-custom.php and get that where it needs to go. It only took me 2 and a half weeks, great huh?
Now, on to the child theme: The codex says, “The bp-default theme is located in the BuddyPress plugin folder at /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/ so it can be updated along with the plugin. WordPress knows where it is, even though your own child theme folder is in /wp-content/themes/.”
I don’t see a themes folder under wp-content, am I supposed to create one and then go on with the rest of the steps?
Thanks so much for taking the time to help me learn all of this, I really appreciate it. I’m checking those links out right now.
Thanks for your advice about the appearance > theme editor. You’re already helping me with the other issue is also an another thread I made. I’m curious if you know of any video tutorials or anything like that because there are so many basics discussed on this forum that I don’t understand. For example, I don’t know how to make a bp-custom.php, I don’t know how to make a child theme, etc. When I google them, all I get is buddypress.org. Yet, while I’m here, I have people tell me to do these things, but I simply don’t know how. Any advice on how to learn the basics?
Thanks for your response,
I have WP 3.3.1/BP 1.5.4
I’m logging in from a mac, so I believe it’s OS X? I’m using Safari. Does that answer your question appropriately?
I have the default BP theme
I have installed s2member, akismet, bbpress, bp, bp pending activations, invite anyone, jetpack, mail from, page tagger, skt nurcaptcha, wiziapp, and wp show id’s
For permalinks, it’s set to post name. When I tried it as default, it gives a 404 error message when someone tries to get on the site.
I installed the plugin ‘redirect to profile’ but that one didn’t seem to work. However, I found one called ‘profile as homepage’ and it seems to work when someone has left my site without logging out and then goes back to the site. But it still doesn’t do the trick when a person logs in. I still get the same ‘page not found’ message.
