    Hi all!

    I posted here a while ago but for some reason my post was deleted.

    I’m having a pretty big error with Buddypress that is annoying the hell out of me. My sidebar appears under my content area, only on Buddypress pages.

    I used the plugin that converts a theme into a Buddypress compatible theme, but it looks like there is an eror somewhere. Some help with this would be great. Thanks guys!

    Dan

    @ribena_wrath you’re missing the opening `

    ` which are supposed to wrap around the widgets. If you need further assistance, open up you active theme’s page.php, copy all therein, then paste to pastebin.com, click submit, then copy the generated URL and post here.

    Open up activity/index.php and replace at the top:
    `

    `

    with
    `

     

    `

    at the bottom of activity/index.php, replace the bottom part
    `

    `

    with
    `

     

     


    `

    Note: You would also want to change header tag in activity/index.php from
    `

    `
    with your theme’s header tag for seamless look
    `

    `

    Save activity/index.php and upload to server. Then do this for the remaining 12 files as indicated in Step Three of this codex page https://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/wordpress-to-buddypress-theme/

    Thankyou

    I did this to no avail, my site is exactly as it was before.

    I just want to make sure I’m editing the right files…Im in

    plugins/bp-template-pack/templates…

    Is this the right directory?

    No, you should not be editing files at plugins/bp-template-pack/. During the BP Compatibility process, 6 folders with BP template files were transferred to your active WP theme folder in server – activity, blogs, forums, groups, members, and registration folders.
    – Download above-mentioned folders from your WP theme folder in server into your computer.
    – Make the revisions in the files specified in Step Three https://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/wordpress-to-buddypress-theme/
    – Upload revised files to server.
    – Done.
