[Resolved] Non-Camptible theme, can't get sidebars to show

    I’m using the latest version of Buddypress (1.8.1) and a theme that has not been made compatible with buddypress. I asked the developer and he said he doesn’t have the time to do this. And actually everything looks fine (header/footer) it’s just the sidebar that is not appearing. The pages that I’ve indicated to use for Activate, Members, etc. are using the theme’s Default template which has a sidebar that has widgets (it’s applied on other pages).

    I’ve looked at the latest articles and I’ve tried to implement the steps but it’s seems like the sidebar is simply not getting recognized.

    Theme Compatibility & Template Files

    Template Hierarchy

    Any help would be hugely appreciated.

    @yoyoma1974 what theme specifically are you trying to make compatible with BP? Hard to guess why you can’t make the changes using CSS or some functions in a child theme, etc.

    We have some new articles with regards to making sidebar appear/disappear at https://codex.buddypress.org/themes/bp-theme-compatibility-and-the-wordpress-default-themes/ like on the Twenty Eleven theme. However, if your specific theme is not using the methods used in articles therein, you might have to follow up with the theme author or hire a developer to help you with the sidebar.

    Keymaster, thanks so much, that’s the exact article I needed. I’ve got it working by adding those 3 files to the child theme and making some CSS adjustments. You saved me a lot of time.

    It’s a themeforest theme so I guess I can’t expect it to be compatible with buddypress. I would think the developer would want it to be but he wasn’t really interested when I brought it to his attention.
