    What file lays out the Member Directory Page?

    I’ve been able to figure out that the buddypress-member directory files create all the various profile pages. In retrospect that makes sense.

    When I load the Member Directory or the Member Groups Page, it’s pulling the various bp-core and groups files from the mu-plugins directories. But it’s putting all that content on a page. How does BP know how to build that page?

    I ask this because I’m using a 3rd party theme. I’ve recreated that 3rd party theme for the member pages by duplicating and placing the right bits of that theme in the appropriate buddypress-member subfolders. They’ll now display their information plus the site wide header, footer and sidebar.

    The Member Directory and Member Groups pages pulled the header and footer from the theme folder on its own. But as I’m trying to get them to also display a particular sidebar, I can’t figure out what to tweak to get the sidebar included.

    Firebug shows that the Directory routines pick up a div id and div class assignment along the way, but I still haven’t tracked those down. It’s quite puzzling.

    This is where the member theme gets tricky and throws a curve ball…

    Check out /mu-plugins/bp-groups/directories/bp-groups-directory-groups.php

    Those files technically aren’t part of the member theme, because they’re not really displaying any specific member or group info; they’re part of the BuddyPress Groups Directory page, and they are meant to be styled site wide using the home themes header and footer files, not the member themes.

    Tricky eh? ;)

    Wow. This took me awhile to find and thanks to this thread, I finally found how to edit the sidebar.

    Question however: I’m having a noob issue trying to get the right sidebar directly to the right of the member list. Right now it’s pushing it below the memberlist. What should I be looking into?
