Re: BuddyPress / Thesis Custom Template Integration



When you integrated this with Thesis what version of BuddyPress were you using? Were you using WordPress MU or regular WordPress?

I’ve been playing around with this today. I am running regular WordPress 2.9.2 with Thesis 1.6 (need to try 1.7 but he really changed things there).

I installed the BuddyPress Template Pack plugin and went to work.

I don’t think you do the thing with the bp-custom.php file anymore, right?

I followed the instructions and copied all of the templates to my /wp-content/themes/thesis_16/ folder.

Then I started digging into how Thesis outputs its content and started updating all of those templates with different HTML markup and calls to Thesis functions to get headers, footers, and sidebars, etc.

So I got the pages like Members, Groups, Activity, etc. looking OK, but not pretty. There is going to be a TON of CSS development needed to make this look as pretty as it all does here.

The thing I’m not yet clear on is how to get it all to flow under one tab like it does here with the Community tab?

And I have LOTS of other questions….and work to do to make it fully functional and tightly integrated into the navigation and flow of the site.

Is it even worth it I’m wondering? ;-D

Just thought I’d share. I’d love to find out someone has already done ALL of this and can provide instructions, or files…would be worth something I think!
