smk_sidebar disappears on buddypress pages

  • aalden55


    BP, WP 4.5.3, Inovado Theme from Minti using Child Theme, SMK-Sidebar generator

    Lost my sidebars with the WP update right before this one. The Minti Theme people gave me a different shortcode to use for the sidebars instead of the auto-generated smk_sidebar id. The new shortcode uses the sidebar name instead of the generated code. Works for all pages except for those with buddypress.

    I read your forums and copied the theme’s page.php file and renamed to buddypress.php and placed in child theme folder. No change.

    I activated the TwentyTwelve theme and the issue remains. Deactivated all other plug-ins. No change.

    I went to the author Minti Theme first due to the original sidebar issue, but they say they do not use buddypress with their theme and cannot help.

    Here is the content of the buddypress.php file in case you see something that needs to be changed.

    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <?php get_template_part( ‘framework/inc/titlebar’ ); ?>

    <div id=”page-wrap” class=”container”>

    <div id=”content” class=”sidebar-right twelve columns”>
    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    <article id=”post-<?php the_ID(); ?>” <?php post_class(); ?>>

    <div class=”entry”>

    <?php the_content(); ?>

    <?php wp_link_pages(array(‘before’ => ‘Pages: ‘, ‘next_or_number’ => ‘number’)); ?>



    <?php if(!$data[‘check_disablecomments’]) { ?>
    <?php comments_template(); ?>
    <?php } ?>

    <?php endwhile; endif; ?>
    </div> <!– end content –>

    <div class=”sidebar-on-right”>
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    </div> <!– end page-wrap –>

    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Kindly ask this at smk sidebar support forum



    I followed your recommendation and posted the issue to smk-sidebar people, but no one has responded in 6 days. Please, if smk-sidebar does not work well with BuddyPress, which sidebar plugin do you recommend? I will gladly use whichever one you know works. I went to the BP article that had a link to recommended plugins, but that link is no good. So here I am again.

    Looking for a little guidance. Thanks, Anne
