Thanks. I’m looking for a single page people can go to where they can see a calendar of upcoming events.
Nice-looking site. As a fan of profile pages, I’d love to hear how you removed the “you must login to access your account” column.
@stwc: thanks for the useful reply. I’ll investigate the Roles. I keep forgetting BuddyPress is only a plugin sitting on top of WPMU.
I understand how I can view a user’s e-mail address. The point was to allow other members to contact them via e-mail or subscribe to their Twitter account or Facebook page for networking purposes.
I’m running BuddyPress 1.1.1 and WPMU 220.127.116.11. However, the direct method works to view the graphs.
This is a simple question: once installed, where can I find the stats? I looked all throughout the “buddypress” menus and couldn’t find it.
@Bpisimone: do you know which css statements I should search? I know I changed the left-menu and main-column widths, but don’t know in which css files they’re declared. The sidebar appears, but at the bottom of the page after all other content.
I use the following for my logo in header.php:
<img src="<?php echo get_stylesheet_directory_uri() ?>/_inc/images/logo.png" />
Diesel: Nice site. I’m doing something similar, except it is centered on journalists.
As for changing the site title to an image, I copied header.php from the parent theme, commented out the “<h1 id=”logo”>” block and replaced it with this bit of code:
Interesting. Please let us know of your progress. I can certainly see uses for such a component.
I’d love to hear how the Mootools slider might work in the profiles area. I’m looking for a way to present a vertical slider where members can toggle among activity, groups joined and friends.
The main problem is I’ve moved member profile data under left-menu, using inner-tube for activity, groups and friends. I’d need to move the following and probably reformat the field headers.
<?php locate_template( array( 'profile/profile-loop.php' ), true ) ?>
A secondary question would be placement of the if statement. I’m guessing preceding this line in profile-loop.php:
(By the way, codex.buddypress.org is still inaccessible even after multiple screen refreshes.)
I experience the same blank screens using Apple’s Safari.
The next step would be to add some code checking first to see whether there is any data for that field. If true, print the data, if not echo ‘(no data found)’.
How do I echo the field’s data?
The line “echo xprofile_get_field_data( $field_name_or_id [, optional $user_id] );” only displays “echo xprofile_get_field_data( $field_name_or_id [, optional $user_id] );”
Jeff: I use FireBug all the time. The problem is it doesn’t provide a link to where the css is declared, so it can be changed. I’m currently trying to track down how to move the button bar to appear inside the left-menu div rather than the optionsbar, which I’ve removed. How do I change the buttonbar so it appears in the left-menu rather than its original location?
Found: it is declared in ( ../bp-sn-parent/_inc/css/layout/internal-pages/3c-left.css );
Thanks. I probably misspoke; I know profile/index.php includes the vcard statement, but I’m looking for the declaration. I want to change the margin-left item so that the vcard position shifts left. I can’t find the vcard div declared in _inc/css/screen.css or elsewhere.
Once you learn how you will design your theme, I hope you tell the rest of the community – and release the theme to the public.
The header is created out of simple
- statements; check out the header.php for details. You can also read the codes.wordpress.org for examples on how to automatically add categories/pages to your menu.
@designodyssey: I like your idea for a BuddyPress showcase that provides a bit of information, as well as inspiration, for others. Certainly learning how GigaOM hired a team of developers to massage code won’t help the average backyard designer, but I’m sure we’d all benefit from others’ experience. Such a project could collect a book of BP ‘recipes’ covering countless common issues.
The problem with using the default child theme as a base for a new theme is that it is much more work. Rather than fit the thousands of WordPress themes into the default child theme, it seems easier to fit the needed BuddyPress features into the style of the many, many WordPress themes being produced for free or commercially.
Thanks. Now all that’s needed is a public release for all us non-coders out there.
