    I wrote the original version of GenesisConnect because the default BP templates do not work well with Genesis & Genesis child themes.

    You are welcome to start with the BP templates if you want. However, the only solution we offer for implementing BP with Genesis & child themes is GenesisConnect.

    Also, if you are using BP 1.7 get the development version of GenesisConnect. Someone had reported an issue that I could not reproduce so I’m waiting on followup before releasing the version for BP 1.7.

    Everything is working fine without GC except sidebars. So in order to use Genesis Simple Sidebars I have to use GC?

    GC strips out all the newly created styling of BP 1.7 if I revert to GC.

    Look at my latest tweet on Cre8tive Diva to see the demo site.

    I am closing this. I was told in email I have to use GC but when I do – all the nice formatting and buttons from the new Buddypress 1.7 goes away and it’s an ugly mess. So I’ll do with out the GSS.

    Yes. There isn’t anything we can do in Simple sidebars to make it work with the BP templates/theme compatibility. In terms of the issue you have above the BP templates/theme compatibility is coded to only show the primary sidebar (in any theme).

    I’ve explained how to work with a custom/unsupported child theme at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/genesis-connect-for-buddypress/other_notes/.

    For the buttons, copy the button CSS from your child theme to the appropriate selectors in buddypress.css.
