Different background image for bp components

  • Hello

    how can I get different background image for each bp component?
    e.g I want to have a red background image for the forum. The index should be yellow and so on…

    Globally? You’d probably need to allow divs in your theme, then define styles for them

    yeah thanks but how can I get the word “forums” when someone is browsing the forum section

    this would be a possibility

    ยด<body id="bgimage-forums"`



    Through the body class yes, but you can use what’s automatically generated instead. Use Firebug, FF add-on or view source code to see what class is being used. And then add image/s via CSS
    ` {
    background: #000066 url(images/blueblue.jpg);
    body.groups {
    background: #000000 url(images/blackblack.jpg);

    If you’re using BP 1.5, and the default theme, it has support for assigning page backgrounds to specific component pages now, in the standard WordPress way.

    thanks mercime !

    @djpaul where can I get the old Default theme of BP. Can I use it for the new version of BP too?



    @linick, why is the default theme that comes with BP 1.5 (in beta) not sufficient? It’s probably the highest quality Buddypress theme out there. Have you found a gap in features/functionality in the old vs new or vice versa?

    the old one was tiny…with the 3 columns
