    WordPress MU : 2.7.1

    BuddyPress : 1.0

    I want to know how can I change member themes.

    There is no option called “BuddyPress”, under “Site Admin” menu.

    That is correct.

    BuddyPress has its own menu grouping found at the very bottom of the menu group column. It is just below the Settings menu grouping.

    @ Jeff Sayre :

    Yes, but the thing is, I have read that I should follow the “BuddyPress” option under “Site Admin” menu, in order to change the member theme.

    I am still unable to change the user theme.

    How can I change the member theme ?

    That is outdated information. If you are using BuddyPress 1.0 and have the bpmember folder installed in /wp-content/bp-themes/, then what I described is correct.

    Log in to WPMU’s backend as site admin, then go to “BuddyPress > General Settings > Select theme to use for BuddyPress generated pages”. After selecting a member theme, make sure you hit the “Save Settings” button.

    I too am confused about this. “BuddyPress > General Settings > Select theme to use for BuddyPress generated pages” just gives me a list of my regular installed themes (minus bphome), but there are no “member” themes in the list. Is this a bug?

    Did you move the bpmember and bpskeletonmember directories from “wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes” to “wp-content/bp-themes“?

    Also if you are using WPMU 2.8.1, there are bugs that are currently being ironed out by the BP dev team. So if you are using WPMU 2.8.1, you’ll have to find one of the workarounds on the forums.

    I think the problem is the same as I was having. It is a known incompatibility bug between WPMU 2.8.1 and BP 1.0.2. Instead of member themes, the settings box is displaying the list of home themes.

    The only workaround I found was to go directly into the database and change the member theme.
