I went a head last night and did it. It will work for one project and not the other one. We switched the sidebars around. Instead of content-sidebar-sidebar(alt), we changed the set up to content-sidebar(alt)-sidebar so I could have the narrower column in the middle. When activating GC, it doesn't work. So I'll have to figure out another route. Also, the formatting in just the regular Buddypress is so nice and pretty and has graphics. When I activate GC it strips all of that out of there. I wish there was a way that when GC is activated, it would keep the original BP styling.
