Missing sidebar and layout issues with BuddyPress 1.8.1 and my WordPress theme
Thank you for your continued hard work on such an amazing system like BuddyPress. I just created a brand new website with the latest versions of WordPress and BuddyPress (WordPress 3.6.1 and BuddyPress 1.8.1). I purchased a popular theme from ThemeForest (over 10,000 purchases) and installed the BuddyPress 1.8.1 plugin. However, there are two major formatting issues that I am hoping someone can assist me with.
First, the sidebar (left, right, or both depending on the setting I choose in the Theme Options) does not appear on any of the BuddyPress pages, such as the Member page. The sidebar displays fine on all other non-BuddyPress pages. On the BuddyPress Members page, it looks like page is full width, even though I specified the BuddyPress pages to have a right or left sidebar. So it seems the BuddyPress Members page is ignoring the theme’s setting to make that page have a sidebar. And second, the search and sorting elements on the Member Directory page is laid out very messy.
I read pages and pages of documentation on this site explaining how this can be fixed with theme compatible packs when BuddyPress was in version 1.7.1. But now that Buddy Press is in 1.8.1, the documentation said I should not follow the steps discussed to get the theme working with BuddyPress 1.7.1. Now that BuddyPress is in version 1.8.1, and I am still having problems with the BuddyPress Members page styling and having a missing sidebar on the BuddyPress Members page, I do not know what to do. I cannot find any documentation that explains how to fix this. I really want to use BuddyPress, but if I cannot have a sidebar on the Members page, then I cannot use BuddyPress.
I would rather not provide a link on a public forum because the website is for a client and is in a testing URL, unless you absolutely need to see it.
Any help, advice, or suggestions would be very much appreciated.
