Buddypress 1.6.1 to 2.0
Hellow. I have a theme that’s 100% functional with Easy Digital Download, bPress, WordPress 3.9 — but is only compatible to Buddypress 1.6.1.
I fixed a handful of issues, like “Notifications Breaking Theme” and “Settings / Profile Loading Blank Page” — then realized I’m trying to fit BuddyPress 2.0 into a 1.6.1 preset theme. I tried downgrading to 1.6.1, but it’s brutally obvious by the numerous errors from BuddyPress 1.6.1 and WordPress 3.9 that the two simply aren’t compatible. Here’s some of those error string gems;
Warning: require(/home/bioniteo/public_html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-core/deprecated/1.5.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/bioniteo/public_html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-loader.php on line 436

What is the easiest way of going about this? Should I remove all BuddyPress files in the theme template? In which case I assume just delete the folders and .css files (or did Buddypress encourage premium templates to add code elsewhere) and after dong so it will work? Is there a sure-fire way to get 1.6.1 working with WordPress 3.9? Is there a list of updates from version to version making it a “plug and play” scenario for me to simply go in and update/add the lines of code? I don’t mind that – as long as there’s a solid list of changes to make from version to version.
I don’t mind what I need to do – all I know is many features are broken. Updating the status doesn’t work (ever-never-ever). User Profiles are virtually useless (every link causes the apocalypse). Right now the best functionality is “Notifications” which needed fixing, and how they incorporate into the “Activity Stream” — although you cannot favorite, comment, or delete from said Activity Stream (just reloads the page instead).
Please help me make a call on this BuddyPress. I need a direction to put a few dozen hours into, and I need the functonality of BuddyPress with bbPress. Thank you.
