Hi Mostofa !
Of course, I can show you how we did it, please follow instruction below:
 
Step 1: Install BuddyPress plugin.
Step 2: Go to your theme folder (wp-content/themes/[theme-name]), and create a new folder, named it “buddypress”. Inside your new folder, create a new file: “bp-custom.php”
 
Now, open up the new file in notepad or any code editor, and copy/paste the code at this link : http://snippi.com/s/e4s59cg
 
Note: Please change ‘dw_simplex’ & ‘dw-simplex’ to your theme name
Step 3: Open the function file of your theme (wp-content/themes/[theme-name]/functions.php), and add this code in (somewhere at top of the file):

 include_once get_template_directory().'/buddypress/bp-custom.php';

Final step: Save the files and go to your profile page to see list of all questions on the new Questions tab.
 
Hope that helps!

I am using iThemes ‘Builder’ with ‘air’ child theme. Where would I upload the buddypress folder?

themes/Builder
OR
themes/Builder-Air-Custom

and when I rename the template in the file what should I use as the template instead of dw_simplex

Regards
Mike

@askmediy: I am trying to get to work as well on a genesis child theme (dynamiks)…unfortunately, nothing related shows…any help which line to add the dynamik name?

Dom Amor
replied 7 years ago

Place the buddypress folder that you made in the Genesis theme directory. Not the active theme but the core theme of Genesis.

Thank you very much…that worked in placing “Question” in the menu tab, but not adding the 3 boxes below the profile image…your assistance is much appreciated

Dom Amor
answered 7 years ago

I would double check all your code and make sure that you have your active theme set right in the code that these guys gave us. All of mine works fine.

lifeischoice
replied 7 years ago

Thanks again…the only part I want to confirm is whether to change all the dw_simplex and dw-simplex in the file at bp-custom.php to Genesis or Dynamik-Gen

Dom Amor
replied 7 years ago

Yes of course.

lifeischoice
replied 7 years ago

Would that change be to Genesis or Dynamik-Gen
Thanks again….

Dom Amor
replied 7 years ago

@ Dom ! Thanks for your help. I appreciate it !
@Debo !
I have checked your site, and look like it is working very well. If you want to display Question tab have style as our demo, You can open the bp-custom.php file, replace all the code in the bp-custom.php  file with new code:

I would just like to add the following:
If you want the DW Q&A authors and answerers links to point to their buddypress profile download and install the BP Blog Author Profile Link plugin – http://wordpress.org/plugins/bp-blog-author-link/
Because questions and answers are actually posts this works well. Also works for comments.
I am not sure if that would affect the coding above?
Regards
Mike
