[Resolved] Install Buddypress without changes upon my main theme – Duotive 3

    Hello Forum,
    I need your help.

    I have installed buddypress but I have a problem to complete the installation.
    Inside admin is shown the sentence:
    You’ll need to activate a BuddyPress-compatible theme to take advantage of all of BuddyPress’s features. We’ve bundled a default theme, but you can always install some other compatible themes or update your existing WordPress theme.

    I do not agree to change my main theme, really I have not understood if the theme compatible is required only for the box as written in the website page “Social networking, in a box”.

    My main theme is duotive.

    Thank you.

    No need to insert block/folder inside the duotive3 theme. That’s what the BP Template Pack is for.

    What I see in your second screenshot is that the UL list styles are showing and the layout is not being contained within the div. The style modifications I linked to should be placed at the bottom of other styles in your stylesheet.

    For example, the UL list styles should be preceded by UL no list styles because of the following BP Twenty Ten style modifications I linked to above:
    `div#item-header ul {
    list-style-type: none;

    ul.item-list {
    list-style-type: none;
    margin-left: 0;

    ul#groups-list {
    list-style-type: none;
    margin-left: 0;

    Since your site is not live, I can’t troubleshoot what’s going on directly. Use Firebug, a Firefox add-on, to see what’s overriding the modifications you’ve made or us Google Chrome and right click to Inspect Element.
