Easel Theme

STEP 3 of the BuddyPress Template Pack plugin compatibility process.

You need to create two new files, header-buddypress.php and sidebar-buddypress.php, to make your theme compatible with BuddyPress.

If you’ve revised any of the BP template files transferred to your Easel theme folder in server during the BP Compatibility process, please delete the 6 BP folders transferred to your Easel theme folder in server – activity, blogs, forums, members, groups, register – then re-run Appearance > BP Compatibility again to make sure that you have clean template files.

A. Copy header.php and Save As > header-buddypress.php

Open up header-buddypress.php and at the bottom of the file, below other code contained within, add this:

<div class="post-2 page type-page status-publish hentry uentry">
<div class="post-head"><?php do_action('easel-post-head'); ?></div>
<div class="post-content">
<div class="entry">

Save file.

B. Create a BLANK sidebar-buddypress.php

Open up sidebar-buddypress.php and paste this:

<div class="clear"></div></div>
<div class="clear"></div></div>
<?php if ( bp_is_register_page() ) : ?>
        <script type="text/javascript">
                jQuery(document).ready( function() {
                        if ( jQuery('div#blog-details').length && !jQuery('div#blog-details').hasClass('show') )
                        jQuery( 'input#signup_with_blog' ).click( function() {
<?php endif; ?>
<div class="post-foot"><?php do_action('easel-post-foot'); ?></div>

Save file.

C. Upload header-buddypress.php and sidebar-buddypress.php to your theme folder in server wp-content/themes/easel/ – the same directory where your regular header.php and sidebar.php are in

D. Copy the style modifications made in BP Twenty Ten to bottom of your theme’s stylesheet http://codex.buddypress.org/legacy/theme-dev-bp-template-pack-walkthrough-twenty-ten-bp-1-5/3/ Adjust to taste.
