Adding buddypress support to a normal theme?

    I have an existing theme I’ve purchased, and I want to add buddypress functionality to it. I created a child theme as per the codex documentation. A lot of functions and buttons related to javascript are broken though, and plugins like Geo My WP simply just don’t work right without it. I’ve looked over the template hierarchy but I’m not sure what I’m missing. I tried copying the contents of wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-templates/bp-legacy/ to my child theme folder, and reactivated my child theme and I still can’t seem to get some stuff to work. Should I add something to my functions.php? Any help is greatly appreciated. I should add that there are no errors in the console, and buddypress.js appears to be loaded in chrome dev tools.

    @uabassguy What theme are you using? What specifically are not working? Site URI?

    Here’s the theme: http://themeforest.net/item/troller-mobile-retina-wordpress-version/3845484
    I have it installed on a dev server and I can’t provide a URI without prior approval, but what isn’t working is Geo My Wp and it’s functioning perfectly fine with the default buddypress theme. Maybe some of the js functions aren’t binding because of classes on div elements? I’m really not sure.

    Any plugin that requires bp-default may not work right with BP 1.7 plus. A lot of plugins were bound to the templates of bp-default.
