    @supernaturalbrews

    I need help setting up buddypress on my current template. I installed the 1.7 version because it said it worked with ALL themes but I can’t get it work with mine. The sidebar is not showing up correctly. I looked at the old version setup but I couldn’t figure out a fix. I don’t really know code so can someone give me a detailed fix?

    normal page (what it should look like):

    Thanks

    @supernaturalbrews BP 1.7 beta 1 does work with all themes unless the theme author rewrites the templating system to his/her proprietary method.

    Having said that, I just checked out and installed https://wordpress.org/extend/themes/triton-lite in test installation and it’s aligned and working out beautifully. It’s definitely not what you have in your site right now.

    I suspect that at one time or another, you used the BP Template Pack plugin and had transferred BP template folders during the Appearance > BP Compatibility process. Make a backup of your theme folder in server, then in Appearance > Themes, delete the whole folder and install a clean download of the Triton Lite theme.

    @mercime sorry, one more question. everything looks great but now the login bar is missing from the very top if I’m logged out. Is there a way to get that back.

    @mercime How do I apply the patch? Where do I load it? As you can tell I’m inexperienced.

    Thanks for all the help. Once I get this fixed I’m done.

    I would perhaps wait, the proposed and committed patch was re-written by a later one reverting the change due to other issues arising from first.

    For reference the green line is the addition or changed line and the red the removed or original version:
