#5817: Additional styling support for BuddyPress Widgets
 Reporter:  mercime       |      Owner:

 Priority:  normal        |  Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  Theme         |    Version:
 Severity:  normal        |   Keywords:
 Currently, {{{buddypress.css}}} styles BP widgets on the premise that
 theme authors are registering their sidebars like the WP default themes
 do, where variables can be replaced with the necessary hooks like so:
 register_sidebar( array(
         'before_widget' => '<aside id="%1$s" class="widget %2$s">',
 ) );

 However, there are theme authors which do not follow that procedure when
 registering sidebars. Therefore, many BP widgets are not styled properly
 because the ID's and classes required are not inserted in the markup. For
 example, the Grisaille theme from the WP theme repo registers sidebars as
                 'before_widget' => '<div class="sidebaritem">',
 ) );

 Therefore the selector founds in buddypress.css, for example
 {{{.widget.buddypress div.item-avatar img.avatar}}}, are not styling BP
 widgets since the {{{widget}}} and {{{buddypress}}} classes are not
 generated in the Grisaille theme's widget container.

 Attached image shows the unstyled widgets of the Grisaille theme. I
 included the Twenty Eleven because the disc list style was showing up.

 Patch will follow.
