creating custom layout

  • denrocs


    I’m trying to create a custom layout for a theme I’m using which doesn’t ship with BuddyPress theming as standard.

    What I’m trying to achieve is a custom layout in the users profile page, but I cannot seem to find the file to do this.
    The changes I’m making are being overridden by ‘page.php’ in the themes child file which is also responsible for a majority of other pages throughout the site.

    How can I create a bespoke users page for all users i.e. ‘’ which is not affected by other files, please?

    Running WordPress 4.9.1
    BuddyPress 3.1.0
    Kentha Theme – ThemeForest
    Localhost instance

    I’ve tried following the codex online to amend this but I cannot get my head around these issues. I literally want a custom php script with some HTML to make it look like the ‘single-artist’ page from Kentha.

    Any help is appreciated 🙂

    With bp you can overload the user profile pages and replace their code with your own. The templates are located in the plugins/buddypress/bp-templates directory, either bp-legacy or bp-nouveau depending on your config. in that directory you would look in buddypress/members/single and you will see the various profile templates. You overload these by creating alternative files in themes/my-child-theme/buddypress/members/signle/ etc..
