Changing BuddyPress Page Templates

  • Hi everyone,

    My site uses a theme with a fairly small content area, so I designed a full width page to use for any pages that are for buddy press. I’ve got buddy press set up but I need to know how to designate the page-full.php template for all BP pages.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! =)

    Thats not the right way to do it. You will need to use some of these files.

    Plugin here that guides you through it

    When you say “Thats not the right way to do it” do you mean that there is a way that is “The only way” or that the way I am describing isn’t cohesive to my goals?



    Try and override things like width via CSS first.

    If you can’t do that, use a child theme and copy over the BP template files you need to override to add CSS classes and then try styling them in CSS to achieve what you want.



    You could do it other ways but if you just want the BP components placed inside your current theme the plugin is a easy way to do that. However, you still may need to adjust CSS.

    you don’t apply a page template to the BP areas. You have to take the BP template files added to your theme folder, and adjust the divs listed in there to match the ones in your page-full.php template.
