Hey guys, In /plugins/buddypress/themes/bp-default I was able to find the sidebar.php file which contains the default buddypress login. The only problem is that when I uploaded to Base it removes all of my other sidebars. Does anyone know how to stop this from happening so I get the login and the sidebars.

Hey Andrew, Not sure this is the best option, but could you create a new sidebar.php and just copy the code from the BP sidebar.php and the sidebar.php file in PlatformPro. (Just a thought... haven't really looked if that will work...)

By the way, those messages show up in the sidebar.

Ok. Just realized that I had another sidebar.php file in my platform base which I got rid of and now I have the sidebars displaying but no login. I'm going to try and add the login code inside the php brackets of the sidebar and see what happens. I'll let you know.

That didn't work. Here's the code that I entered:

SIDEBAR (SIDEBAR WRAP)

This file controls the sidebar wrap template; which depending on the mode container one or both sidebars from layout.
(It is used by BuddyPress as well and should play nice with child themes.)

The bp sidbar is in the div="buddypress_login"

What am I doing wrong?

What code inside the code you posted above is the one you added to the sidebar file?

I'm sure that there is a plugin that allows you to use a widget for BuddyPress admin details.
