Change BuddyPress pages template within PlatformPro

Question

Posted · Report post

Hi there, I am wanting to change the template for the pages relating to my buddypress community. Is there a way of doing this within PlatformPro that doesn't involve changing lots of code? There are no separate pages that I can see created for /activity, /groups, /forums pages etc that I can access in Wordpress to change their format like I can with all my other website pages. Please help

Are you willing to work with some CSS? That is the best and easiest way to change the look.

Sure, happy to do that, just not confident enough to go in and change a lot of code without really knowing what I am doing. Can it be fairly straightforward?

Hi jimmy, Thanks for reply. Sorry for delay in responding. The website is www.contactdance.co.uk. I am creating a members area. Anyone can join. The pages I am wanting to change the format of are those accessible only by members e.g. contactdance.co.uk/members contactdance.co.uk/forums contactdance.co.uk/groups etc. Currently they seem to run on the default-page theme but have the main content which goes full page and pushes the sidebar below it. I want to have no sidebar on these pages and to include my secondary navigation menu at the top of the page (beneath the main website navigation) similar to the page contactdance.co.uk/members-area/ (once logged in). Any help would be really appreciate, many thanks.

Or alternatively (ideally) having a sidebar (that fixes and doesn't get moved down by the content) with the following sections: Logged in as (username and option to logout) Who's online: avatars or names Recent activity

Here is the CSS that you can add to get the one-sidebar-right appearance that you are looking for ` #buddypress-page #content { padding-right: 30px; width: 710px; float: left; margin: 30px 0; } `
