[Resolved] BuddyPress and BBpress integration

The Toolset Community Forum is closed, for technical support questions, please head on to our Toolset Professional Support (for paid clients), with any pre-sale or admin question please contact us here.

This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem:
Can I customize BuddyPress or BBPress templates with Toolset, and will those plugins work with Toolset

Solution:
1. Both Plugins will work with Toolset and our Starter Theme
2. You will not be able to customize the templates of the Plugins
3. You can add information to those templates only by inserting Toolset Contents with the API we provide:
https://toolset.com/documentation/user-guides/views-api/
https://toolset.com/documentation/customizing-sites-using-php/functions/
4. You will be able to produce some output of BuddyPress using a hidden code fraction of layouts plugin
- To enable it, head to your FTP Layouts folder and locate the Extra/buddypress folder.
- Open it and locate the file "buddypress.php"
- Remove the first

return;

statement you find in it, and save
- If now you enable Layouts and Buddypress, a new Cell will be available in layouts to let you render BuddyPress Content.
- That Layout then can be used on any Page, and it will display BuddyPress contents.
- But this code section is not under active development and we do not provide support for issues regarding it.

I will be creating a site with multiples CPT and other Toolset integration (multiple users and access restiction to custom fields).

Q1: I would like to know if BuddyPress and BBpress will work out of the box with the Toolset Bootstrap OR Toolset Starter themes.

Q2: Will I be able to add information of the user created CPT's to each BuddyPress user profile?

Thanks.

BBPress and BuddyPress templates are hardcoded.

You can add information to those templates only by inserting Toolset Contents with the API we provide:
https://toolset.com/documentation/user-guides/views-api/
https://toolset.com/documentation/customizing-sites-using-php/functions/

Both Plugins will work with the Theme we provide, and you will be able to even produce some output of BuddyPress using a hidden code fraction of layouts.

To enable it, head to your FTP Layouts folder and locate the Extra/buddypress folder.
Open it and locate the file "buddypress.php"
Remove the first return; statement you fin in it, and save

If now you enable Layouts and Buddypress, a new Cell should be available in layouts to let you render BuddyPress Content.

That Layout then can be used on any Page, and it will display BuddyPress contents.

But this code section is not under active development and we do not provide support for issues regarding it.

Thank you

OK, thanks for the help Beda, but I'll re do my original question:

Will the plugin work out-of-the-box with Toolset Bootstrap OR Toolset Starter themes, with its original hardcoded templates?

I will change it's design by css.

Thanks again.

As long you do not enable layouts, this will work out of the box with both themes.

Since these contents (of BuddyPress and similar) can not be designed with layouts unless you use the above suggested code section, and the Toolset Starter Theme relies on Layout Created output in case this plugin(layouts) is active, you will not be able to use it "out of the box" with Toolset Starter theme.

This means if layouts is enabled, and you use Toolset Starter theme, you will have to use the code section I mentioned in Layouts, and BuddyPress is only limitedly customizable with layouts.

With Toolset Bootstrap the Situation is different, as this theme does not rely on layouts (even if layouts is enabled) you can show contents without using layouts on the specific BuddyPress templates.

This is the theme you will use if you want to display BuddyPress (hardcoded templates), and Layouts styled contents where you need (Other pages or posts eventually).

Does that help?

Thank you
