Support » Theme: Frisco for BuddyPress » Move Sidebar to Footer

  • Resolved caroFan232



    So using the theme, I realized that some of my plugins were interacting with the sidebar that you log in and log out with, which is already on the right of all pages. I wanted to move it to the bottom footer area but it didn’t show up on widgets. Is there a code or plugin that can move this to the footer areas?

    Look at sidebar.php in the bp-default theme. It’s located in the BuddyPress themes folder. wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/sidebar.php

    The Frisco theme is a child theme of bp-default and is actually using most template files from bp-default (like sidebar.php), so you’ll want to override a couple templates.

    To do that, copy sidebar.php and sidebar-footer.php from bp-default and put the copied files in your Frisco theme folder. Then cut the login code (lines 8-59) from sidebar.php in the Frisco theme folder, and put it wherever you’d like in sidebar-footer.php or even footer.php. You’ll likely need to add some custom CSS to style the form/section again.
