Re: My 2 Cents

1. If you don’t want the nav bar, you can suppress it with the following line in your wp-config.php file:
`define( ‘BP_DISABLE_ADMIN_BAR’, true );`
or you can manually unhook it with the following lines in your theme’s functions.php:
`remove_action( ‘wp_footer’, ‘bp_core_admin_bar’, 8 );
remove_action( ‘admin_footer’, ‘bp_core_admin_bar’ );`
No need to hack anything.

2. A vanilla installation of BP, using the default theme, loads one stylesheet: style.css. That stylesheet includes two others: _inc/css/default.css and _inc/css/adminbar.css. There is also a stylesheet for the Dashboard view. If you are using the template pack and are finding too many stylesheets, it’s possible that your WP theme is to blame. In this respect, BP is being fairly austere in the number of CSS files it’s loading. If you want to override things, there’s no reason to “hack” – just put your own overriding styles after the import commands in style.css.

3. This is a great idea, I think. Perhaps you could file a formal enhancement request at (same username/pw as this site)

4. The way that the default theme handles profile, activity, friends etc separately, provides a large amount of straightforward customization in child themes. If bp-default had them consolidated, child theme authors would have to rebuild the pages to make them separate. We are erring on the side of enhanceability. You are welcome to build a child theme that incorporates these parts of the profile into a single page – I bet a fair number of people would be interested in such a thing.
