Customizr and Buddypress compatibility (5 posts)

    Hi

    Nice theme here.

    I'm trying to setup a buddypress community using customizr.

    As per 1.7 buddypress version, it is compatible with almost every themes.

    Customizr is no exception although there's the need to adjust page templates to Buddypress pages.

    I've been looking around customizr templates and found that page templates are more complex than what I'm used to (I'm not a coder just a somehow experienced WP user with some websites built one of them a buddypress community).

    As far as I could understand Buddypress pages in customizr are built under other than theme's previewed cases.
    Eg. the file post-list-header.php located at parts makes use of this part of the code to put the tilte:

    else :
            _e( 'Archives', 'customizr' );
          endif;
        ?></h1>

    This is the last option to select a title for the page which doesn't match with any previously coded.

    The solution for this comes by building one or several specific templates to be used by Buddypress and place them at a child theme.

    Since customizr has its own template structure such as main templates and parts templates, what would be the best aproach to adjust the theme without loosing the responsive features of the theme?
    1- Build templates from scratch?
    2- Include in the conditions the Buddypress posts?
    3- Simply adjust at main templates and parts the else case (when it's not none of the previously mentioned)?

    This post at Buddypress support, mentions buddypress theme compatibility.

    Great question. I'd like to do my own templates, too. But I'm not 100% sure how to do so in this lovely but non-standard theme.

    Anyone?

    A tutorial on how to make custom post templates would be fantastic.

    Also, how would you add Buddypress/Bbpress sidebars?

    Thanks for a great theme!

    Not an expert either, and cannot comment on Buddypress, but one thing I know is that the theme is built on the Twitter Bootstrap. This underpins the page structures and the carousel (slider), so if you need to understand them better, you should google Twitter Bootstrap.

    Thanks Electricfeet

    Twitter Bootstrap only underpins the styles. This means Customizr styles are based on it.

    To display Buddypress and bbPress properly, Customizr theme templates need some adjustments. Nothing serious but one need to know coding.
