 Headings provide structure for content in a website. However, an
 accessibility audit of the headings in the bp-legacy template files reveal
 that the headings are not correctly nested, so assistive technology such
 as screen readers cannot easily navigate the site. For this reason, using
 the proper heading structure `<h1>` to `<h6>` and correct nesting of such
 is essential.

 This ticket will serve as a placeholder for the following files identified
 in the initial audit which require change in heading structures.
