If you want to change the look and feel of the BuddyBlog posts list or the single post on your profile, you can easily do it by adding the template files in your own theme/child theme and modify it.

Here is a screenshot showing the template files used by BuddyBlog.

Modifying BuddyBlog Templates

BuddyBlog Template Files:-

  • posts.php -> Used for displaying posts list on profile.
  • single.php -> Used for displaying single post.
  • edit.php -> Used for create/edit post.

To modify any of the views,  and to preserve your changes for the future, you should copy the needed template to your theme.

Here is a screenshot showing how we have modified the posts list for BuddyBlog and have put our change in the theme.

Modifying BuddyBlog Templates


Note the change “plugins/buddyblog/template/buddyblog/posts.php -> moved to -> themes/community-builder/buddyblog/posts.php

In your case, your theme will be different.

The important point is, you need to maintain the template folder structure as the buddyblog/[the-template-file-name-you-want-to-override].php

That’s all. Have fun.
