How to divided a page into several parts for easy edit?

  • Still is me. This is my third post today. Please forgive me I am a novice.
    I use wordpress 3.0.1 with buddypress
    I want diy my homepage.
    I see wp admin dashboard – appearance – editor can edit every bp theme page.
    Is homepage name call: main index templete?
    Whether it allow to be divided into several parts, that I can also edit every small part in the wp admin dashboard – appearance – editor.

    Do not edit the theme files from the folder bp-default. you need to create a child theme first. This way you won’t mess up your installation and can upgrade.

    Theoretically it’s possible, but I would really discourage it at this point. You’re basically contemplating taking some 100+ files (I’m guestimating that number, it might actually be closer to 200) from a BuddyPress compatible theme and making them all accessible in the WordPress theme editor. It would be an absolute nightmare.

    Yes, I copy the theme for a new to edit.
    Is the homepage’s name called: main index templete?

    and can I move the index.php into a new folder under the theme parent folder?
    If can, which files should be edited?
    In any case, I still want to try to divide a page into several parts… If there has some codes support…
    Thanks again.
