Confused about Member & Home themes
Sorry, I’m very confused about themes…
There are 2 locations & 2 standard themes wp-content/member-themes/buddypress-member & wp-content/themes/buddypress-home
So my thought is that the buddypress-home theme is the base theme for BuddyPress home page and joining members get the buddypress-member theme
In the member-themes-readme.txt it says that any normal theme must be ‘BuddyPress enabled” to enable it as a member theme. It also says that any standard WordPress theme can be used as a home theme.
So if I add a standard WordPress theme to the wp-content/themes directory & enable it I can change the base BuddyPress home page – that works ok. But any member going into their wp-admin pages and selecting Design/Themes can only see the activated themes in the wp-content/themes directory.
Under the siteadmin/buddypress BuddyPress settings page I have a drop down “Select theme to use for member pages:” and in there I have “Buddy Press Member Theme” but when a member logs on all they can see is themes in the wp-content-theme directory…
As I said I’m very confused about how this should be working. Is what I’ve said above the correct understanding and something is wrong with my install? Or have I misunderstood something?
