    Hello All,

    Im wondering if a BUDDYPRESS CHILD THEME, for example “FRISCO” usable as a BLOG Theme? Are Child Themes, even BP-Default compatible as a generic WordPress Blog theme?

    My scenario,
    1) Latest Version of WP, BP installed
    2) Multisite Mode.
    3) Using BP-Default theme on TLD (www.mydomain.com/ )
    4) I would like to use FRISCO on my other blog (www.mydomain.com/DRIFT )

    QUESTION:
    1) is using a default BP childtheme as a blog cause problems?
    2) is using bp-default as a blog theme on my other blog cause problems?

    I don’t see why you would have any problems.

    The themes are made to work first with WordPress, then with Buddypress.

    If you are worried just set up a test site and check them out on a site with WordPress and no Buddypress installed.

    I hope this helps.

    If you are using WP 3.5.1 and BP 1.7 beta1 then you can use any theme because of the built in compatibility layer.
    See my reply in this thread:

    @joesell89 @bphelp Thanks Guys… yup.. it seems to be working.. I just dont want any “unintended consequences”, build out that sub_blog only to revert back. BUT, so far, everything looks cool. forums, member-group-forum search seems to all be working fine…
