Header image on network site
I have WP 3.0.1 installed with multisite enabled. I also have buddypress with multisite support turned on. However, when I go to example.com/site1, it displays the header image of example.com
You would have to be more specific. BP version? Where is BP installed – main site or secondary blog? You’re using bp-default theme on main site and subsite?
sorry….buddypress version 1.2.6 installed on the main site i’m using the edublogs theme on the main site and buddypress theme on subsite
The BuddyPress Default theme is not meant to be used network-wide.
If you want to use the same theme across your blogs, you need to create a child theme of the BuddyPress Default theme.
Then you can modify the header (header.php) to use the main site’s header image.
thanks i’ll give it a try
I am having the same issue as AWeathers: I have WP 3.01 & BP 1.2.6 – I have various sites running successfully as subdirectories from my main site, but when I try to have BP default theme activated on a new subdirectory site, while it works seemingly perfectly the header image displays the main site title instead of the community site I am trying to create. If I add: define ( ‘BP_ROOT_BLOG’, 3 ); to wp-config.php it fixes it up but then places my main site as a “secondary” site to the community site and “sees” it as just another blog. (edit: the other sites continue working fine though)
Ray you point out the default is not meant as a network wide theme, but if you create a child theme of the default you can have the same theme across all blogs – I do not want this, only on the community site alone, with all my other sites having their unique themes. Is this at all possible?
tried this last night as well and i run into the same issue as bazonline when i use the child theme, then all of the sites get the same child theme
@bazonline – You shouldn’t have much trouble then. Just activate bp-default on the community blog only and not on all the blogs. If you’re just having problem with the page `
`, go into your community blog’s general settings and change the blog title:
@aweathers – Like I said, you need to modify the header.php file in your child theme to call the main site’s header image. Calling the main site’s header image requires a little bit of PHP coding. Or if you know you’re never going to change the header image, just hardcode the image URL into header.php.
ok…i gave this a try…
example.com – primary site – enabled edublogs theme – expected edublogs theme to work – functioned as expected
example.com/site1 – activated buddypress default theme on site – worked as expected
example.com/site2 – activated buddypress child theme on site – worked as expected
now, i wanted to customize the header on example.com/site2. i logged in with the admin for example.com/site2 but was unable to customize header, so i logged into example.com with superadmin and went to example.com/site2 backend. I updated the header to a customized image, but it doesn’t show up anywhere!
@r-a-y Thanks for the input. I have solved the title page issue as per your link provided thanks!
Still battling with my main site being seen as a secondary site on the bp-default install (running on a sub-directory) I have only activated bp-default on the subdirectory as suggested. Both sites run well, but under the blogs tab in bp-default theme all my other sites are showing on the community site as well that shouldnt be there. Is this just a basic setting I am getting wrong here or am I trying to do something thats not possible!
