    ok i found what was blocking the render, but the code placed in bp-custom.php does nothing at all, i still see all cats on a normal user when trying to create new buddyblog post.

    i tried bp-custom.php and also child themes function.php just to see if bp-custom wasnt being called but it is

    Hi Phil,
    You are missing the filters.

    Please add

    
    add_filter( 'buddyblog_post_form_settings', 'buddyblog_show_custom_cats', 100 );
    add_action( 'bsfep_post_saved', 'buddydev_add_default_category_to_post' );
    
    

    to the existing code and make sure that the value for child_of is correct.
    Please try and let me know if it works for you or not?

    ok so my only complaint is this:
    1) does not get user profile image
    2) not inheriting css from theme
    3) Edit Post brings them to WP backend to edit, not the front end.

    heres a pic of what it looks like:
