    Hi, and thank you very much for the code, it works very well. Can I, in an easy way ad the blog page to the code, or should I just copy the code and change ‘members’ with ‘blog’?

    I wonder why this code is not part of the build in security in WP and BP, so anyone just can ad a /members /blogs and so on, and see content for logged in users only. i guess you can’t do that in Facebook.

    Generally, that is the problem with BuddyPress – top functionality, but the design sucks, and options for customization is very nerdy.

    Yes, not least because the dimension of the image is important for better results, according to the guideline:
    “For better results, make sure to upload an image that is larger than 720px wide, and 225px tall.”

    The users are not nerds, why not help them by showing a cropping tool, so they can choose which part of the image they want displayed within this dimension?

    Hi Henry, thanks for answering, I have added a child theme with a style.css document. But even changes to the original code, just for testing, no changes are taken place.

    Hi David, the problem is you can’t select which part of the larger image is displayed when you can not crop it yourself.

    Disabling cover images leaves a gray box where the image has been, this is not what you want.

    Regards

    The cover image is very distorted on mobile devices

    Yes, it is the “Name” field I am referring to, which also is the basis for search options, that is why I am surprised it is not unique.

    Just to be sure we are talking about the same username. It is the BP name under “Profile Details”, not the WP user name under “Account details”?

    I am able to register the same name twice here.

    Hi there, thanks for your respond. The reason why I want to see my profile, is more a matter of having BP components like messages and notifications visible at all times, without adding them to the theme menu.

    Another strange ting is BP’s redirection to the activity page, when activity component is active. Why does BP not allow users decide which page should be the landing page, when viewing own, and others profile?
    And why do I need to install a third part plugin to have my profile as landing page after login?

    I got a little further on this topic myself and found out that some apache modules in the httpd.conf file should be enabled.

    Here’s a description:
    1. Open apache’s configuration file using your favorite text editor. The configuration file generally locates at:{apache_dir}/conf/httpd.conf
    2. If you are using XAMPP or WAMP package then you will find the file at:{xampp_dir}/apache/conf/httpd.conf
    {wamp_dir}/apache/conf/httpd.conf
    Search for the following string:#LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so and uncomment it (remove the ‘#’ sign).
    3. Now search for another string AllowOverride None and replace it by AllowOverride All
    4. Finally save the changes, close your text editor and restart your apache server.

    But this is not so straight forward in the new XAMPP 7.1.12-0-vm for Mac, because the apache httpd.conf file does not contain the #LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite strings as described above.

    I realize that this is a WordPress issue so I will direct my question to the WP community

    Hi Boone, thank you very much for clarifying about avatars.
    Here are the lightboxes I have tried so far:

    jQuery Colorbox
    WP Colorbox
    WP Lightbox 2
    ARI Fancy Lightbox
    Responsive Lightbox
    Simple Lightbox
    Wp Lightbox Bank Standard Edition

    Generally, an option for choosing avatar sizes in BuddyPress would be much appreciated!

    Regards
    Carsten

    First I tried Textwrangler, it diden’t work, then I managed to delete the folder with FileZilla

    Hmmm, probably an browser error

    copying the buddypress folder containing the members-loop.php to my child theme leaves my page blank.
    And now the folder can’t be deleted from the child theme…

    “buddypress” could not be deleted, because an error (22126) occurred.

    @carsten-lund

    Thanks, now I think I understand…


    Carsten Lund

    @carsten-lund

    I mean, the buddypress folder in bp-templates/bp-legacy


    Carsten Lund

    @carsten-lund

    Copy, and at the same time leave the original buddypress folder under plugins?

    Thanks, I have read the page about Template Hierarchy, can see this is very complex, at least to me.

    I looked to the buddypress directory which looks different:

    wp-content > plugins < buddypress > bp-members > ?

    members_loop.php does not exist, is this aam I in the wrong directory?

    I have tried to ad a buddypress.php file to both my theme and child theme directory, but this will prevent my site from loading?

    I am looking at the thread “Adding profile fields to members directory”
    https://buddypress.org/support/topic/adding-profile-fields-to-members-directory/

    You wrote:

    There’s 2 ways of doing this.

    1. You could modify the members-loop template (see the BuddyPress Template Hierarchy for details on how that’s done). See here. You would just add bp_member_profile_data( ‘field=the field name here’ ); to the template.

    2. Add this to your theme’s functions.php file:

    function add_info_to_members_loop() {
    echo bp_get_member_profile_data( ‘field=the field name here’ );
    }
    add_action( ‘bp_directory_members_item’, ‘add_info_to_members_loop’ );

    Which template are you referring to in 1.?
    can both code snippets be placed either in functions.php or bp-custom.php?

    Thanks.
    So there are no search function in BuddyPress as stand alone plug in?

    Thanks for your reply, it doesn’t say, but it is probably the case.
