Theres gotta be another way to fix the problem.. (i cant change the PHP) on my VPS any work arounds?
I was also concerned about compatibility with themes and plugins i install in the future.
@rogercoathup (hat tip)!
Documentation seems indicate that this is a recommend practice. Though, Im always fearful in making changes like these..
I was wondering if there was a different method.
Couldnt you use the existing user roles… built in to wordpress?
Can anyone recommend a technique or a plugin so that i can customize the wp-login.php” screen
too bad its ruby and not php (kids!)
*Hat Tip*! @rogercoathup thanks for the input!
I dont think the folks I CC’d have such tender sensibilities that they would be offended to CC’ them. besides.. its a community thing.
just frustrated with it all.. heh…
You know..I just realized that the writing a plugin or making changes to any files is a terrible way of addressing this. It should be a default User Experience behaviour of Buddypress… thats its purpose. I dont under stand why a “reply” button cant be default and if they arent a member or not logged in it should ask them to log in or start an account. its just really basic.
But.. Shouldnt this basic user experience be built into buddypress? (btw Thanks @nuprn1 )
I’ve been taught not to mess with those files because when update day comes im screwed.
So, I can just copy the CSS and mangle that to taste and not copy the “template files”
So… do i just make a “child theme” of “BP-Default”? meaning “copy the content of that” into a new folder “myChildTheme” and make that the “child” of “bp-default”
though, im not a fan of the “must fill” (required) stuff when logging on via twitter. but still very cool.
oh, and the site seems a little sluggish..
nevertheless – very cool!
Oh boy, I love this.. it was exactly what I was searching for. searched “Share” and this was the first hit!
creating a whole new “child theme” vs.. ONE LINE of httaccess
seems like an easier choice to just add that one line of httaccess
You can try by adding “DirectoryIndex” by way of modifying the HTACCESS file.
The way I did it was I added the line:
this tells your webserver to use that file as the main “index” instead of the “index.php”
it seems to work well as “maintenance page” while keeping all of the functionality of buddypress intact (blogs, members, sign ins, etc) still seem to function.
nicely done! nicely done! would you release a copy of your theme or some variation of it… pretty please… well done !
gotcha! let me fiddle with it!
any ideas from anyone? searching the docs hasnt yielded anything!
