[resolved] No styles on Courseware Dashboard (7 posts)

    I've got a big problem with a complete lack of styling in the Courseware Dashboard. Here's a screenshot:

    I'm using a theme that supports BuddyPress, but it's not working with Courseware. I know you guys don't support other themes, and I'll need to do some tweaking, but can you point me in the right direction? What files should I be looking at to edit to get my theme's styles applied to the Courseware Dashboard?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you place a file called courseware.css in your theme folder (root) and enable the option (in courseware options page) to load it, you can add styles for your theme easily:

    Yes, thanks, but I did that already. No dice.

    It seems the problem is deeper than that. It's not just that the styles aren't applied... my site's header, footer, nav, widgets and sidebar are all omitted from the courseware dashboard. It seems this plugin isn't quite "plugged-in" to the rest of my site code the way the BuddyPress plugin is.

    I realize this is probably related to my theme, but changing themes isn't an option at this point. Is there anything else you can think of? I'm happy to tinker with this myself, but I'm not a developer. Without a nudge in the right direction, I don't know where to start.

    Nevermind... Tinkering around with groups/single/plugins.php fixed the problem.

    I'm not sure that is the right way to do it. I would suggest you to fix the theme rather than the plugin.

    That is a theme file. The complete path is:
    wp-content/themes/[my theme directory]/groups/single/plugins.php

    These functions were all commented out by default for some reason:
    <?php get_header( 'buddypress' ); ?>
    <?php get_sidebar( 'buddypress' ); ?>
    <?php get_footer( 'buddypress' ); ?>

    Incidentally, putting the courseware.css file in my theme directory still isn't working. I just added the courseware css to my theme's css document and it works fine... But I'm not sure why your method isn't working for me. It's not a big deal, but I thought I'd let you know.
