Genesis Connect for BuddyPress
Use GC and Keep Buddypress Default CSS (11 posts)

    Is there a way to use this so that we retain all the nice CSS styling with 1.7? When I activate it - all of the styling goes away and it's pretty much an ugly mess. I need to use the Genesis Simple Sidebars but I can't if I am going to lose the default BP styling.

    Try copying genesis-connect/child-theme/genesis/buddypress.css to your child theme.

    The instructions for custom/unsupported child themes are under other notes: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/genesis-connect-for-buddypress/other_notes/

    Do I still need to activate GC though. Activate but move the CSS over to my theme?

    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.

    Was this a new BP 1.7.X install or did you originally set up BP 1.6.X?

    It was a new install of WP and Buddypress 1.7.

    Can you post a link to your site while GC is active?

    Same thing here. All I really need from gc is simple sidebar support. All my styling is stripped and my sidebars get pushed below my content.

    @brandfection, I switched to Custom Sidebars - http://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-sidebars/ and it works great. I am just going to give up and leave the site the way it is and try to just add in a few hack to finish it off.
