    @valuser Which wordstrap theme are you referring to? The issue could probably be due to how the page title is rendered by your theme. Is the theme using the_title or a theme-specific template tag?

    If it’s a theme-specific template tag causing the issue, you can most possibly resolve this by creating a template specifically for the Groups Directory page which addresses the page title issue

    Many thanks for your reply.

    The theme is that at

    Have taken your advice and am almost there! (i think !)

    I just have not altered the index.php file correctly – (your advice very welcome)

    With an index.php file in directory —> themes/wordstrap/groups/index.php

    (no change whatsoever if in themes/wordstrap/buddypress/groups/index.php)

    see altered file at

    and a jpg of the result at (where within the content everything has floated left!).

    Any advice most welcome

    Please bear in mind primary purpose of support here isn’t providing solutions for third-party themes.
    You’ll need to track down why it isn’t working, and as mercime suggests, create a custom override template for BP screens.

    hnla, valuser and I are long-time acquaintances 😉

    @valuser Could be the missing opening and closing divs. Not going to be as easy as BP template pack IMHO :-)

    We could try the alternative way for theme compatibility which is creating one file to take care of all the BuddyPress pages. So backup the buddypress/groups/index.php you made and delete the index.php along with the BP folders you created from your theme folder in server. Then create a file, buddypress.php and add and upload this to the root of your theme folder in server i.e., wordstrap/buddypress.php

    hi @valuser,

    the bp_is_blog_page function is missing to hide the calendar when on BP pages.

    The place with the weird output contains an overcomplicated method to show a title. IMHO there is no need to use so many conditionnals to show a post title…. So I replaced it by the h1 stuff used in Twenty Thirteen.

    You will probably need some adjustment into CSS too. So far i can see there is no other trouble with BP. Nice theme !

    remove/replace the following into /partials/part_article_header.php

        // Article calendar
        if ( bp_is_blog_page() ) :  //  if it returns true, it's not a BP page.
        if (!is_page() && !is_search()) : ?>
    	<div class="calendar event_date">
    		<span class="month"><?php echo strtoupper(get_the_date('M')); ?></span>
    		<span class="day"><?php echo get_the_date('d'); ?></span>
    		<span class="year"><?php echo get_the_date('Y'); ?></span>
        <?php endif; 
               endif; // ending bp_is_blog_page ?>
        <h1 class="entry-title">
            <?php if ( is_single() ) :  ?>
                <?php the_title(); ?>
            <?php else : ?>
                <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a>
    			 <?php endif; ?>
