User Profile Page

Permalink 1 user found helpful
Hello... I am pulling my hair out trying to get my user profile pages to work!

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:

http://const.apbc.ca/profile/1/...

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!!

Please help!

copy the view.php to
/themes/creativity/

"copy the view.php to /themes/creativity/"

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?

Still lost...

I am having a similar problem with my Member page. I am new at this, when you save

"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

Thank you!

You use your FTP program to copy and move the file.

I have solved this issue.

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.

if this is tru you should notify the author of creativity so he can update it.

I second the above opinion, you should get in touch with the author before advising not to purchase. There could be many possible reasons for things not to work and I doubt any theme is going to be perfect.

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.
