Many know that when you install buddypress and the template pack that it screws with the setup template of platform. My sidebars that were once on the side are all pushed down to the bottom. Buddypress has instructions on how to edit your html structure on typical themes but I can't find anywhere in Platform to copy structural html from. I'm totally naive on this subject so a nice step by step would help very much thank you. Darn thing is that I had this all fixed up earlier this year but uninstalled buddypress the other day to try something else and now I cannot remember how I did it all those months ago. http://thebusysingleparent.com/members

From the lack of Buddypress issues in this forum I conclude that everyone else is either not using it or is just way more smarter than me (which is probably the case) but according to Buddypress forums Platform Pro should have never been tagged as Buddypress compatible. Better integration would be nice for us who don't know anything about coding.

Did you also get the BuddyPress template pack plugin ?

After uninstalling, deleting, and re-installing every plugin related to buddypress and platform I finally got it fixed by restoring files from a month ago - when it did work. Wish I had thought of that yesterday.

However - what do I need to do to get the Full Width Side-bar to show up on the Buddypress pages? It never showed up before either but I would like it to.

Do you already have the full-width sidebar set up? (I don't see it in any of the pages on your website.)

This was and old question but I know others have the same so I finally made the sidebar issues work with this code
 #buddypress-page #content{
	width:530px;
	float:right;
	margin: 25px 0 0 0;
	}

Of course one has to change the width and the float to fit their needs

As far as full width sidebars
I'm using base-sidebar now (new site) in pages and post for ad placement and I think those sidebars just don't work in custom pages like what buddypress uses.

Or is there a way?

If its a matter of having the right content wrappers, you can get google Chrome and "inspect" your page to see all the divs and how they are layed out. I've seen this same thing on other plugins such as Jigoshop and Woocommerce.

Don't know if it will help because I don't know the buddypress syntax, but here is an example of what you have to do with Woocommerce in Framework:

 
	remove_action('woocommerce_before_main_content','woocommerce_output_content_wrapper', 10);
	remove_action('woocommerce_after_main_content', 'woocommerce_output_content_wrapper_end', 10);
	
	add_action( 'woocommerce_before_main_content', 'pl_woo_open_wraps', 10 );
	add_action( 'woocommerce_after_main_content', 'pl_woo_close_wraps', 10 );
	
	function pl_woo_open_wraps() {
		echo '  <section id="content class="container fix secondnav-content content-footcols">
				<div class="texture">
				<div class="content">
				<div class="content-pad">
				<div id="pagelines_content" class="one-sidebar-right fix">
				<div id="column-wrap" class="fix">
				<div id="column-main" class="mcolumn fix">
				<div class="mcolumn-pad">
				';
	}
	function pl_woo_close_wraps() {
		echo '</section></div></div></div></div></div></div></div>';
	}

Again, I know this is not for buddypress but might help you understand the structure IF that is how the budypress integration even works.

That's getting into areas I'm ignorant about so I'll ask this... Is this something I would change in the buddypress functions.php like for each page bp_members_functions.php, bp_groups_functions.php and so on or is this something I change in the platform... also, I'm using probase not framework - don't know if that makes a difference.

At present, bbPress and BuddyPress do not function correctly in PlatformPro. I'm sorry but Catrina may have been unaware of this. We're about to release PageLines Framework 2.1 which has integration for both bbPress and BuddyPress. I'd suggest considering an upgrade to our new Framework. There's no solutions available for PlatformPro, unfortunately.

I hate to complain but considering pagelines pro was advertised as compatible with bbpress and buddypress (especially buddypress) no one should have to pay for a new framework - especially full price when they already paid for pro expecting it to work. I read in another thread that stated pro was advertised as a theme and not a framework yet, I remember just the opposite when I paid for mine and upgrades were supposed to be free and now that they have this new framework instead of fixing pro that people have paid for they are trying to sell them something else that from what I read still isn't compatible with buddypress - maybe the new version you spoke of will be but still - I already paid for one product that doesn't work as advertised so why would I pay for another one with the same promise? All the differences in the new framework are exactly what everyone who bought pro was asking for (all the things they were unhappy with in pro) so instead of upgrading pro - pagelines just comes out with a new product. Like i said, I don't like complaining but this seriously seems like a scam - bring someone in with a promise then not full-fill that promise.

"There's no solutions available for PlatformPro, unfortunately." Does that mean I get my money back since if failed to perform as promised? At least as store credit towards the new framework? I missed out on the offered discount because at the time I was not in a position to purchase and "upgrade". Why do they call it an "upgrade" if it is a new product anyway?

Hi kastelic,

Re: Matching WooCommerce's content wrappers to PageLines Framework (v2.1.1)

Your solution works great (http://www.pagelines...7#Comment_91377), but only for the content part of the page. The sidebar is still pushed to the bottom of the page.

Is there more code to match the sidebar's content wrapper as well?

Thanks.

Well said, thebusysingleparent. I cannot agree with you more. I paid 300 dollars or so for all the software they sold last year, because they said they would come with compatible forum plugins that looked so cool. But when I bought them, it was so difficult to set them up. And the video tutorials did not help much.

@maigoofy Unfortunatelly i have experienced the same, and there is no way to get support for pagelines pro from developers, i was promised a solution to make it compatible with bbpress but nothing happened. they are simply not interested, if you spent another 190 dollars and upgrade to framework, you will have it fixed... or better i send you those files for free if you want.
