I love PL 2.3 Pro but Buddypress styling is a wreck!


Question

Posted · Report post

Has anyone managed to get buddypress 1.6.1 looking presentable in Pagelines 2.3 Pro. It appears to be a bootstrap styling clash.

I'd love to know if I'm missing something obvious!

buddypress and pagelines ugly styling!.tiff

i just stepped back from pagelines/buddypress and decided to go with buddypress default theme for one of my two buddypress communities. at www.curetinnitus.org i do have framework or pagelines (not sure exactly what version it is or what exactly it's called) working -- and working quite well -- so it's possible. but you might have to leap over tall buildings, hire some folks, eat superfoods, and spend a few sleepless nights to get it to work. (i did all but one of those LOL).

buddypress styling is a wreck anyway. it's tough. buddypress is simply not a plug and play plugin. i use it on two sites and well -- it's not really "fun."

when working with buddypress expect to really need to dig and find seemingly unreasonable solutions and figure out odd workarounds, etc.

wanted to come back though and say -- it can be worth it to work with buddypress and it looks to have gotten quite a bit easier over the years. still a lot of people throw away buddypress.

True. I'm not sure what could be causing the styling issues in Buddypress (if I did I'd tell you, haha).
