Where is the Profile Page?

  • scotty_417


    Newbie here. Here is my site example:

    I have BuddyPress installed.
    When I login, it defaults to the Profile page.
    What I want to do is to put BuddyPress “Who’s Online,” “Members,” etc. on the Profile page.
    I go to Widgets. I see those widgets. I put them on Bottom B.

    I am using the theme from
    When I click on their Widget “location,” I do not see anything called “Profile.”
    The closest thing that I see is “My Account,” but nothing shows up if I select it.

    @scotty_417 – profile pages, member pages, groups pages – these are not “real pages” – they do not have a “taxonomy” – they are “pseudo pages” – basically add widget stuff your default sidebar and pray it shows up there. It’s a major downside of the current BP, and causes problems not just for easy customization, but also things like page titles and meta descriptions.

    Those in the BP forums will likely just point you to your them developer and tell you to ask them. Of course there is no easy answer if they don’t know all the ins and out of BP. Just like the meta problems – point the finger at others, the point back saying they follow the WP guidelines (which for many things have changed recently, making it more difficult for theme designers and BP coders)

    No one here is going to help you with a premium theme from somewhere else – at least from what I have seen. You might get a reply if you are asking about the default 2014 theme or something else similar / default WP.

    OF course I am not a BP Dev – just another user, so take these thoughts with a grain of salt or two.
