Getting the activity feeds “view” link template file correct for custom themes

  • Mark


    I’m running worpdress 3.01 and bp and I have a custom theme. I have the acitivty feed running as the home page and when you click on view of someone who registered it takes you to the correct url but it doesn’t display the css correctly. I’m not a dveloper and I was wondering if its an issue with a template file? Any feedback where to start would be helpful

  • the activity permalink for the member’s activity is a little different. a few topics have been mentioned on here about it but you can modify a child theme file for members/single/activity/permalink.php

    Broadly speaking? It’s an odd file that permalink.php one :)

    You will probably need to compare it to the markup for a file such as members/index.php or some similar main template file for your theme. permalink.php has very little markup apart from calling the get_header() and get_footer() in between that you simply have a ul construct and activity/entry.php call so it’s never likely to work well in customised themes without some work.

    No doubt :) Depending on how one has customised things though adding the markup your theme uses may trigger descendent selector rulesets.

    Dimly recall chat about dumping the file altogether which sounds like best course of action.

    Yep, there are a few threads about how to remove the view link altogether



    Thanks everyone, I’ll send this thread along to my programmer and get his thoughts.
