BuddyPress can’t see bp-themes

    Hello there,

    I keep experiencing this error

    You do not have any BuddyPress themes installed.

    Please move “/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/” to “/wp-content/bp-themes/” and refresh this page. You can download more themes here.

    I have moved the bp-themes to the correct directory and all the permissions are correct. When clicking on ‘General Settings’ under the buddypress menu, the “Select theme to use for BuddyPress generated pages” drop down shows all the themes in my standard wordpress themes folder :s

    Any idea whats going on?

    Many thanks

    Dan

    I’m having the same problem.

    I’ve got MU 2.8 and BP 1.0.2. I put the themes in the correct folder. I can activate the BP home theme inside the MU Admin, but when I go to choose a theme for BuddyPress, the only themes that show are activated WP themes.

    I’ve deleted BP, dropped all bp tables from the database and reinstalled. Then deleted and reinstalled two additional times and tried basically everything suggested here to no avail.

    It seems that the current “solution” is to wait for the BP 1.0.3 — is that the current suggestion?

    Well, yes, that’s the best way for the majority of BuddyPress users, I suspect.

    However, you can work around by duplicating the BP Member Theme folder (/bptheme) into /wpcontent/themes. You don’t need to do anything else, but this should populate the list for you allowing you to save the member theme.

    Or, if you know what you’re doing, apply the patch to fix this problem to your current release manually – http://trac.buddypress.org/changeset/1601/. If you do not understand PHP I would not recommend you do this, just in case you accidently introduce any errors.

    Or.

    COPY (not move) your bp theme into the normal themes folder. Now it’ll show up in the dropdown. Once there, select it, save, and voila.

    Afterwards you can delete the copy.

    (or you can do it with symlinks if you know how)

    Thanks DJPaul. I did this, and it does indeed put the BP themes into the Admin area so that I can activate them, and then when I go into the BP settings, I can now choose the skeleton or default BP theme and save those settings.

    BUT…when I try to access any part of BP, it still gives me the same error.

    I guess I’ll go try to upgrade to 1.0.3

    I forgot to mention in my previous post that when I first activated BP, I received an error that said the plugin couldn’t be activated because it triggered a fatal error, but yet it IS installed and it does show up in my plugin list. Weird.
