Hey Chris, id you update the theme for sidebars? I still can’t get ‘em to work. And where is the global sidebar switch? I see in the widgets that I can add widgets to the sidebar section, but none of them show up. I also couldn’t find the file that maxaud posted above (sidebar-buddypress.php). I did find buddypress-sidevar.php but in a search of that page couldn’t find the link referenced above. Help!

I tried to email you through your profile and get a 405 Error? That’s a new one on me. You can email me at joeschaefer09[at]gmail[dot]com. Let me know what files you updated so maybe I can just upload those? Just a thought .

Hey man. I’m stumped. This site is responsive, but the full admin bar doesn’t show on my iphone. So, my profile dropdown and info is no where to be found. This would make my users not want to use it on a phone because they couldn’t look at their mentions, messages, etc. Or am I missing something? Plus, the logout link is in there, so they can’t log out without the full admin bar (right side is missing on iphone)

Hey there,

I’ve emailed you, I’ll help you there.

Thanks

Hi Chris, The front end of the site template looks great…do the users see similar styling on the backend when they login? I’m new to buddypress and have never installed a theme for it, so I’m curious about how it will look for my users.

ChrisMooney

Hey there,

BuddyPress uses a “Buddybar” which is similar to the WordPress admin bar which lets the users access notifications and edit their profile which is all handled on the front end. You can have the login page on the front end so they never see the WP backend.

Best way to see is to install the plugin and give the default theme a test ride with a guest account: http://buddypress.org/

Thanks

Hi Chris, I purchased the theme and have a team working on it but my question is..is the theme Social Buddy that we see on Themeforest the actual theme or was the above theme already customize. I thought when they downloaded the theme it would like like the theme on this site. This is my site in the beginning stages www.ugoishow.com and this is what it looks like as of now. Need clarification …thx!

ChrisMooney

Hey there,

The demo site is the actual ThemeForest theme. I would recommend taking a look at the documentation especially the section on setting up your homepage.

If you have any questions or queries get in touch.

Thanks

Hi! I like the theme very much. But I was worried by the announcement on the demo page (Twitter feed): “Feature! BuddyPress theme will be retired at the end of the January. Good news, there’s more themes on the way”

Does it mean that you will stop development of this particular theme? What about the future updates and support? Should we wait for new released themes instead of investing in this one?

Thanx!

ChrisMooney

Hey there,

The announcement (from our twitter feed) was to inform customers that an older theme (Feature!) was being retired. There are no plans to retire this theme any time soon so don’t worry :)

Thanks

Hey Chris,

Has there been a fix for width (not 100% on header and body on most pages) for the tablet/mobile version yet?

Disregard my previous inquiry. I figured it out myself. I just added this code to the styles.css:

@media screen and (max-width: 720px) { #page-header { width: 93.5%; } } @media screen and (max-width: 480px) { #page-header { width: 93.5%; } }

Hey there,

Could you elaborate on the bug? Perhaps you could send me a screenshot via email to show me what you mean?

Thanks

Encountered a BuddyPress page that doesn’t look to be completed.. When someone replies to an activity item I got an email that directed me to the particular activity item.

The URL was like so: http://<my_domain>.com/members/admin/activity/<activity_id>/

replace my_domain and activity_id with a number of the activity to view.

Cool, when should this be released?

ChrisMooney

BuddyPress 1.7 is nearing release, so there will be an update (most likely within the month) that will ensure compatibility with the latest BP version and include fixes and enchantments.

Thanks

Cool, thanks. Look forward to it.

Hi,

Interested in buying, only a couple of questions.

1. Is it possible to display the blog on the frontpage. 2. Can i change the size of the sidebar to make use of larger Adsense blocks?

Let me know.

ChrisMooney

Hey there,

1. Yes you can, you set the homepage in WP Admin > Settings > Reading > Front Page Displays

2. You can with a tweak to the CSS.

Thanks

Hi Chris

Can you kindly point out how to create a child theme for social buddy?

Thanks

ChrisMooney

Hey there,

I can’t tell the problem without seeing the issue. Other customers have been using Child Themes with my themes successfully so it might just be an error on your end. Email me via my profile with a link to your site with admin details and I’ll take a look for you.

Thanks

Hi Chris

Figured this one out..you need the footer and header files dumped in the child theme folder…

ChrisMooney

Glad you got it sorted :)

do you do any customization work?

ChrisMooney

Hey there,

I don’t, thanks for asking though.

I have the same issue with the iPhone as joeschaefer09… the top buddypress bar. Quote from above… “So, my profile dropdown and info is no where to be found. This would make my users not want to use it on a phone because they couldn’t look at their mentions, messages, etc. Or am I missing something? Plus, the logout link is in there, so they can’t log out without the full admin bar (right side is missing on iphone)”

Can you help me with this iussue?

ChrisMooney

Hey there,

I’m working at resolving this in the next version.

Good Day,

Having issues with loading imaged to the homepage slider. Every time it tries to upload it gives a error message. Also is it a way to hide the login wordpress image at the top of the homepage. Thanks!

ChrisMooney

Hey there,

I see you’ve posted on the forum, I’ll get back to you there.

Hello,

I think this buddypress will be on my short list. Great theme! I do have some questions, before I might purchase the theme.

Can I extend the sidebar width to 300px or at least 250px? And maybe reduce the width of the main content within the blog styling.

Does the theme comes with some nice shortcodes? Is there a demo available?

Are there any plans to integrate an “about the author” section inside an blog article?

Which widgets are included to the theme?

Many thanks in advance. Best regards Tobias

ChrisMooney

Hey there,

The sidebar is percentage based. You can modify the proportions with an easy CSS tweak.

Here are the shortcodes available in the theme: http://themes.swishthemes.com/socialbuddy/shortcodes/

The theme has this feature, the author just needs to have a bio filled in.

There is a Twitter, Flickr and Blog (with thumbnails) widget included in the theme.

Thanks

Hi Chris, bought the theme and it is great. One problem I am having is that I changed the color of the header to orange, and when I turn an iphone to landscape mode, the orange does not extend responsively 100% to the right margin – it is about 90%.

Website is http://buddha.fm – please let me know if you have any suggestions.

ChrisMooney

Hey there,

Your link doesn’t work. If I can see the problem live, it helps speed up solving it.

Thanks

Hello, nice theme. A question please. For the translation process can you give me some information (on all languages, made ??through the admin panel)? Thank you in advance.

ChrisMooney

Hey there,

The translation is done through po/mo files. The codex has more information on how localization is handled in themes/plugins etc: http://codex.wordpress.org/Translating_WordPress

Thanks

How do I turn off the Authors Name in all of the Posts?

Thanks you!

ChrisMooney

Hey there,

You’ll either need to edit the template (best use a Child Theme) or use some Custom CSS to hide it.

Thanks

Good Day,

Im having issues with the sidebar. Anytime I place a widget in the buddypress sidebar it does not show on the front end. Im trying to use login with Ajax or buddypres and its not showing and because of this how will users log in or out if I hide the admin bar. Thx in advance

ChrisMooney

Hey there,

Do all widgets not show on BuddyPress pages or just specific ones?

Thanks

Good Day Chris,

I will clarify…widgets do appear on the blog page in the sidebar and when but it does not show on profile pages. It only shows on homepage when I’m log in and once I log out its gone. I was trying to use login with ajax on the Homepage and the sign in button does not appear on the homepage. And I would like to add social logins for users w/ Fb account on the homepage. The default log in and register bar at the top allows users to go the the dashboard and I want to avoid this. So I wanted to use ajax…am I missing something? Can I have the wp sign in bar w/o users being able to go to the dashboard? Thx

ChrisMooney

Hey there,

It might be best if you email me a link to your site with your admin details so I can take a look at the issue for you. Might be quicker that way :)

Thanks
