    Hey @tomelk31

    Remove the P align left part ;)
    Use the submit div and add a left float, so it mimics this:

    Cheers,

    Thanks for replying. Couldn’t find the ” P align left part” part and added the code but it didn’t work. :(

    @tomelk31 Per my check, the submit button is floated right in your site’s register page. However, this page and your other BP pages show that you still need to complete Step 3 of the Appearance > BP Compatibility process, i.e., fixing alignment for BP template files transferred to your WP theme folder.

    I have tried following the guide but can’t seem to figure out what is wrong with the structure of the code.

    page.php = http://pastebin.com/Z8zZimye
    register.php = http://pastebin.com/bBfHa2DV
    sidebar.php = http://pastebin.com/C6EUdPeX
    member.php = http://pastebin.com/UATUWRiB
    header.php = http://pastebin.com/WammXDw0

    Also the sidebar should be on the right but instead is pushed down the page on any buddypress page. Any ideas why?

    If you need any others then let me know. Thanks

    @tomelk31 looks like the easiest option is available where you only need to adjust the style instead of revising 16 BP template files by adding the following to your stylesheet:

    `#content .padder {
    float: left;
    margin-top: 20px;
    width: 600px;
    }`
    then copy over the style modifications for some BP elements https://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/theme-dev-bp-template-pack-walkthrough-twenty-ten-bp-1-5/3/ and paste those at the bottom of your theme’s stylesheet after the `#content .padder` above, then adjust to taste.

    Thanks for your reply. I added the code above to my stylesheet but it didn’t change anything.

    @tomelk31 It should rein in BP content to the left to lift up the sidebar. Where did you add the style to `#content .padder` and the styles I mentioned for you to copy from the Twenty Ten modifications? I’m looking at your blacklight/style.css file in server and the styles have not been added at all.

    I have added them all to the stylesheet. Here is a copy of it: http://pastebin.com/b5eqv0Bn

    They are all there!

    @tomelk31 ok, I see that you’ve added the styles now and I see that the additions have fixed the layout for all BP pages.

    @tomelk31 Clear cache. The Members Directory page layout is just fine in desktop and iPad. What browser/device are you viewing it in?

    @bibliata You can make a WP theme compatible with BP by installing the BP Template Pack plugin and going through BP compatibility process which we are addressing in this thread.

    I would say that if you are HTML- and CSS-challenged, you could change to WP theme which approximates the look you want to have for your site and install the BP template pack plugin.

    If you’re just going to run a default BP installation, i.e., just use default features, then you’re set until the time where you need a multi-DB solution for the growing number of users/blogs in your install. But if you want to customize presentation and functionality within the site, then you’d either have to learn PHP,HTML,CSS,JS,WP,BP or hire a developer to help you out.

    @mercime Thanks for all your help. It is working great now, I think it was my PC cache rather than the site cache which I cleared to begin with.

    It is working fine now though!

    @tomelk31 No problem. You’re lucky you only had to add styles instead of revising 16 template files for Step 3 :-) Marking this as resolved.
