Re: Regular wp theme to a buddypress theme?



Did you get to step 3 of the plugin?

It gives explicit instructions on how to modify the template to match your WordPress theme.

If BuddyPress pages are not aligned correctly then you will need to modify some of the templates to match your theme’s HTML structure.

Then open up the page.php file (if this does not exist use index.php). Make note of the HTML template structure of the file, specifically the [div] tags that surround the content and sidebar.

You will need to change the HTML structure in the BuddyPress templates that you copied into your theme to match the structure in your page.php or index.php file. The files that you need to edit are as follows (leave out any folders you have not copied over in step two):

* /activity/index.php
* /blogs/index.php
* /forums/index.php
* /groups/index.php
* /groups/create.php
* /groups/single/home.php
* /groups/single/plugins.php
* /members/index.php
* /members/single/home.php
* /members/single/plugins.php
* /registration/register.php

Once you are done matching up the HTML structure of your theme in these template files, please take another look through your site. You should find that BuddyPress pages now fit inside the content structure of your theme.

If you can’t get this to work, just use a pre-made BuddyPress theme.
