    Hi Plutus,
    Thank you for the question.

    In order to override, you need to know a few things.

    1. Are you using a child theme? If yes, you will need to look for the relevant file in the parent theme first

    2. Which template pack are you using? If the parent theme does not contain the template and you want to override it, you will need to look into wp-content/plugins.buddypress/bp-templates/{template pac, bp-nouveau or bp-legacy which ever is active} /buddypress/file-path and copy to yourtheme/buddypress/file-path.

    That will work.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Hi Plutus,
    That is the correct way to override.

    If it is not working, Please contact the theme author and seek their advice. They may be able to help better.
