[Resolved] Another request for Theme Help – Trying to get Shoutbox theme to work in BuddyPress

  • rhek



    This is another theme help request. I have spent about a week, off and on, trying to get the theme working. I think my problem is I am trying to make it harder than it should be. I have a habit of doing that.

    I currently have a test site at The site is really slow, but I think that is because it is on a GoDaddy Windows hosting account which works great for .Net coding, but not too much for WordPress. We are setting up a PSek hosting account for the live site.

    I have reinstalled the theme and automatically moved the template files using the BP Compatibility plugin. So I am on Step 3 and here is where I seem to be stuck. I have tried to follow some of the other suggestions I have seen here, but I am not getting anywhere.

    I have fresh copies of header-buddypress.php, sidebar-buddypress.php, and footer-buddypress.php in the theme folder. My initial thoughts were that sidebar-buddypress.php would need changed and
    maybe header-buddypress.php. I think footer-buddypress.php is not needed.

    I have 2 screenshots. The first is the home page which is fine. The second is the BuddyPress Profile page which is a mess.

    Home Page:
    Profile Page:

    Here are some of the theme files:


    If someone has a couple minutes and could guide me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it. Maybe once I see what needs to be done I will be able to get my head around it and help someone else in the future.
