My theme has this in it’s style sheet

That means it’s a child of bp right?
Right I’m aware. I’ve tried every combination including what you’ve mentioned Mercime as my first try. I’ve also copy pasted the members file along with all it’s children and cousins to my custom theme folder. The only thing that makes any changes what so ever is placing home.php in the main custom-theme folder, which will change the home page but not the user profile.
I’ve created my custom theme by modifying a copy of twenty ten, completely customizing each relevant file but maintaining the same function names. Could this be having some thing to do with my troubles since the other themes allow me to access a working user profile.
I’ve moved the home.php file to my theme folder which is what I think you meant Ray. This changes the look of my wp home page but does nothing to my user profile. Am I missing some thing or is this the correct path?
Thank you for your time Ray. Your recommendation for blog post worked as stated. I’m finally making some head way.
The user profile is another matter. when it comes to the user profile, I feel like a three-legged cat trying to bury a turd on a frozen pond. I’ve copied the single folder out of the buddypress default theme folder and placed it in my active wordpress theme. I’ve gone through and edited each file in the folder trying to get some kind of change to happen to my profile page, but nothing. Have I understood you correctly? The home.php file is the file that dictates the relationship of the others? Am I to transfer the single file to my wp theme and then edit the original or the one I’ve copied? I’ve done both with no result, then deleted both with no result.
Any Ideas would be cherished! Thanks for your time again.
I’m sorry for not being specific. The user profile page is missing the main main content col which contains the written content on the main page, as well as the side bars and footer so it’s getting the header from the theme but not taking any thing else except background image from the style sheet.
`User profile is yourtheme/members/single`
I assume you mean buddypress theme? I’ve played around in the single folder going through each file, deleting it’s contents , reloading the profile page to see any effect before restoring the file’s contents but, have been unable to find any pinchlin file to theme the profile page with. Am I missing some thing?
My theme is heavily based upon twentyten which doesn’t use such a file to my knowledge. Is the post file some thing I could create my self? If so where, in my wp theme folder?
Thank you for your time Virtuali very, very much.
I didn’t like the the plugin solution since it wasn’t quite what I wanted so I created my own. I wanted to be able to put a link to a user profile where ever I want by displaying the users name. You could hard code this if you know the users name but what if you want it to be dynamic and work for any user? I came up with this simple solution which is easy even if you don’t know php.
In the functions.php file add the following to the bottom.
/* Return authors profile link*/
echo( ‘‘); echo get_the_author(); echo(‘‘);
Then simply include the following php line of code any where in loop-index.php where you’d like the current posts users name displayed as a link linking to their profile. It knows what post it’s referring to based on each one it’s printed in as it goes through the loop. I’m using it in the following code in loop-index.php
<div id="post-” >
<a href="” title=”” rel=”bookmark”>
Live long and prosper.
