User Profile Page1 user found helpful
I have narrowed it down to a problem with my theme (creativity) and my view.php file... I think.
I have enabled user profiles. I have "profile" listed in my single pages in the dashboard.
When I visit the URL for the profile page, it is a blank version of my theme. See here:
The page contains no content, just the basic shell.
I have copied my "view.php" file from my themes folder to the root/single_pages/profile folder.
But any changes I make to the view.php file in this location are ignored, it still goes off the view.php file located in the theme folder.
I can't understand why such a basic feature is so difficult to get running!!
You mean from the root 'single_pages' directory? That would just be putting the file back where I copied it from in the first place.
If I edit the view.php in the theme folder, wouldn't that have implications for any other page that uses that file?
"I have copied my "view.php" file from my themes folder to the root/single_pages/profile folder."
And I think need to do something similar, what are you actually doing?
- how do you copy a php file from a themes folder and
- and place it in the root/single_pages/profile folder
Always more to learn :}
In interim, Tony's Add-on is doing the trick
Attached is my current member page that also links to Zoho Project Management
My theme "view.php" was missing this string:
<? print $innerContent; ?>
Note to all - DONT buy the Creativity theme. This one of many errors in it.
I used creativity and when I thought I had a problem, I contacted the author, who responded quickly. It ended up not being a problem with the theme, but they helped anyway. As well, my user profile area worked without issue.
