How to style profile tabs

  • Hello!

    I’ve just installed Buddypress on my WordPress website (currently in maintenance mode as I’m working on it).

    1. Which version of WP/MU are you running? WP 2.9.2

    2. Did you install WP/MU as a directory or subdomain install? directory

    3. If a directory install, is it in root or in a subdirectory? root

    6. Which version of BP are you running? last one

    8. Do you have any plugins other than BuddyPress installed and activated? yes

    9. Are you using the standard BuddyPress themes or customized themes? tryi to customized mine

    10. Have you modified the core files in any way? no

    11. Do you have any custom functions in bp-custom.php? hum no

    So I moved the BP templates files in my current theme folder, I changed them to match my theme, actually, it’s just a question of having the sidebar on the right. No problem. But I’m a bit lost about CSS files. How do I customize the profile tabs? It seems that no css sheet is applied because profile informations are really basic text. What the best thing to do to customize BP css?

    Thank you very much for your help

    You have to learn how to use a web developer toolbar.

    Using Firefox with the Firebug plugin can help find the specific CSS element. Once you’ve found the element, start applying some CSS rules in your child theme’s style.css.

    I’m using Firebug heavily actually but I was wondering if I have to add the bp default css in my theme’s style.css or use an external css, Firebug finds css from wp-content/plugins/bp-template-pack/bp.css?ver=2.9.2

    Add the CSS in your own theme, you should be able to override those styles.

    Thank you Andy! It seems to work :)

    I wonder somthing about the default css. I have to Disable BP Template Pack CSS, isn’t it in the plugin settings? In which file is called the default css “bp-template-pack/bp.css?ver=2.9.2”?
