Why isn’t there a radio button to click if you want to use the mobile design?
I want my site to look exactly like it does on my computer.
And you can’t get to the dashboard on your phone anymore.
@zkwc are you using the bp-default theme or a child theme of bp-default theme?
@mercime @zkwc I have the same issue. I am using a child theme of the bp-default theme. Any advice gratefully received.
@zkwc @solarprestige add this to your bp-default child theme’s functions.php file
`remove_theme_support( ‘bp-default-responsive’ );`
@mercime Many thanks for your swift response. I’ll give that a go.
I have put this code into an empty functions.php in my child theme and nothing has happened. Do I need anything else? A hook of some sort? Or does that code sit alone within opening / closing tags?
I have looked around the net and tried a few things but nothing is working. I am a real beginner when it comes to php (and most things really ) so I imagine this is something quite obvious.
Install this plugin https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-extended-settings
Has option to turn off setting.
@mercime just putting remove_theme_support doesn’t work. You have to add it to a certain action.
Thanks, I’ve activated that plugin. The toolbar has reappeared which is great. However the layout on my iphone now has column on the right-hand side (I use a child theme of the default theme) taking up most of the screen with the main body just a thin sliver on the left.
Is there a simple fix to this or does this require editing the css? If any code needs changing, any info on where I should be looking would be extremely helpful.
Thanks in advance for any pointers.
Is your theme a custom them or BP-default? If its BP-default you have to force a width. Fluid widths without responsive layout are a small screen nightmare. Have you considered another responsive theme or BP mobile plugin?
I’m using the BP-default theme. I’ll have a play around and then most likely use the plugin.
Many thanks @modemlooper
@modemlooper – you’re officially awesome. thank you.
@modemlooper – unfortunately it breaks profiles when I use it there. Fatal error: Cannot access empty property in /var/www/vhosts/figuremodels.org/htdocs/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-core/bp-core-template.php on line 823
but how do you tell it to disable the mobile view on phones? didn’t see that part.
If you are using bp-default you can install BP Extended Settings plugin. There is option to turn off responsive css. You will still need to add some css that forces a minimum width so the content doesnt get scrunched up.
