Buddy Press Plug In

  • Anonymous


    Please excuse my ignorance, I am floundering my way thru my first attempt at a website:) I am using the Graphene Theme and tried to add the BuddyPress Plugin, there seems to be some alignment issue, Buddy Press gives instuctions on how to fix however it might as well be in Swahili. Here is what they say, can you tell me in laymans terms what I need to do?

    xing Alignment

    By default BuddyPress templates use this HTML structure:


    <div id=”container”>

    <div id=”content”>



    <div id=”sidebar”>





    If BuddyPress pages are not aligned correctly then you will need to modify some of the templates to match your theme’s HTML structure. The best way to do this is to FTP to your theme’s files at:


    Then open up the page.php file (if this does not exist use index.php). Make note of the HTML template structure of the file, specifically the <div> tags that surround the content and sidebar.

    You will need to change the HTML structure in the BuddyPress templates that you copied into your theme to match the structure in your page.php or index.php file. The files that you need to edit are as follows (leave out any folders you have not copied over in step two):












    Once you are done matching up the HTML structure of your theme in these template files, please take another look through your site. You should find that BuddyPress pages now fit inside the content structure of your theme.
