[Resolved] Adjusting BP width – apologies for dumb question

    @pataphor

    I realize this is such a basic and lame question.

    I installed the BuddyPress Template Pack and followed the BP Compatibility process, but:

    a) Every time I edit the PHP files as directed (e.g. activity/index.php), I don’t see any changes in the actual live pages, after after a cache clear and refresh (completely baffling to me)
    b) When looking at my theme’s Page.PHP file, I don’t see a width designation as a pixel or percent to copy over anyway?

    Everything looks great; all I’m really trying to do is make the widths match?

    Sample of my pain and misery:

    @pataphor open up your theme’s header.php with a text editor, copy all code, paste code in pastebin.com, click submit and post the generated URL here. Do the same for your theme’s index.php, page.php, sidebar.php and footer.php files.

    Thanks; I really want the plugin to integrate with my theme if possible!

    Wow thanks for this amazing help!

    I did it and I’m getting excited! (Though I didn’t see the “ tags at all for some reason.)

    Some pages still seem to have issues fitting:

    I was thinking it might be easier to remove the sidebar, but I wasn’t sure how to go about it.

    On the other hand, this test forum I made fits great!

    So maybe if I could make them all fit, maybe with that custom CSS somehow, it would be cool.

    Although, on a separate note, I’m not sure why Forums is blank …

    Add `padding-left: 0;` to
    `div.item-list-tabs ul, div#object-nav.item-list-tabs ul, div#subnav.item-list-tabs ul {
    font-size: 13px;
    margin-left: 0 !important;
    }`

    As for forum issues, do create a new topic for that.
    This BP compatibility issue has been resolved.

    Will do, sir.

    What if I wanted to remove the sidebar from those pages? Would that be an option? I tried selecting template “full width” but that didn’t seem to take, for reason that should be obvious to me, but aren’t.

    If you wanted to go full width/remove the sidebar, then check out the HTML structure in your theme’s full-width template file if you have one. I can only assume that you would have to change the class=column-left in `

    ` to something else at the top, then remove “ at the bottom of the file. It just depends on your theme’s markup for full-width page.

    Hello my friend:

    Indeed, the full width template does remove the sidebar, except for some reason it doesn’t seem to “take” (i.e., the sidebar remains).

    I ended up removing the php sidebar from members/single/home.php as a test, but once the sidebar it gone it doesn’t actually change the width to be full-page. : /

    Post the code of a full-width page template in pastebin.com if your theme has one. Post the generated url here.
