I was also wondering this? To be specific I need to know how many members of each group we have, how many members in each country, how many mambers in each university (Our community is an academic research community), etc?
Where can you find the names of the widgets you want listed for users by default so you can add them to the user layout?
Also is there a way of forcing all new users to have the same buddypress theme? EG: Shout? It seems really weird tome that the default mode of operation is that each new users account gets set to the wordpress default rather than the site default.
Could I just overwrite the wordpress default blog theme directory with the contents of the shout buddypress theme?
