    @sgrunt

    Hi guys, i’ve created a free theme for BuddyPress that changes the look of homepage and member pages, keeping it in a facebook style. In this first attemp i’ve tried to stay simple, creating a minimal and clean style without using images (only 1 for the bground and 1 for your custom logo). Installation is really simple and you can overwrite your existing theme without loosing any file (you’ll overwrite only the footer cause i have inserted a little credits link). Hope you like it!

    Download page: http://www.buddydress.com/2009/03/facebuddy-free-buddypress-theme/

    Next themes will be more graphical and richs, stay tuned!

    Why have you written to replace the member-themes directory??

    You can change the name of facebuddy theme directory :)

    is that under gpl? <– if yes i’ll add styles for the bpdev-autosuggest plugin :D

    Wow that’s neat.

    Any demos? I couldn’t find one after 2 seconds so I got lazy and figured I’d ask. :)

    i’ve made some changes to the loader.php to correctly add the stylesheet. We’re still in beta but i think that we’re going to see the light!

    @decisionc

    could someone give instructions on how to install?

    i put home theme in themes directory

    and member themes in member-themes directory

    then activated home theme.

    facebuddy home theme is loading, but i get default buddypress member theme.

    do i have to activate member theme?

    any suggestions?

    yawn….early morning in Italy. If you first activate the facebuddy home theme, and then select site admin>buddypress>select theme>facebuddy it does not load? i seee that here all works: http://wordpress-blog.nl/

    please be sure to have downloaded the latest version of the zip (it was uploaded yesterday)

    obviously the facebuddy member-theme folder should have this path: wp-contentmember-themesfacebuddy member-theme

    good work my friend, please then show me the link to your website, and put it in the comments of buddydress.com too, so people can see working website!

    note: after a segnalation of Andy Peatling i’ve just reupload the file changing the folder name from facebuddy member-theme to facebuddy-member-theme, because the white space could be a problem

    hi decisionc, after activating the facebuddy home theme, have you activated the facebuddy member theme from Site admin > Buddypress > Select theme > ? Can you see facebuddy in that list?

    mmmmh…the home theme is facebuddy or another theme? it’s important that facebuddy is both home and member theme. I’ll change this today, using base.css although that site-wide.css

    hmm, home is facebuddy. home is working fine. members page reverts to buddypress default.

    It actually reverts to the completely unedited bp member default. what i mean is that the logo “Social Network” still appears, even though in my slightly modified buddypress default theme, i removed the logo.

    i have latest versions of wpmu and bp installed, if that helps.

    @sgrunt

    ok please do this, i hope this works until i’ll rename all css: could you try to copy the css/site-wide.css content of your facebuddy home theme and past it into the css/custom.css of your facebuddy-member-theme? It’s an hack and i’m sorry: today i’ll fix everything. This happens because in my original intent i wanted to work on sitewide files but it was an error.

    maybe it’s more simple in this way:

    “copy the css/site-wide.css file of your facebuddy home-theme and past it into the css folder of your facebuddy-member-theme renaming it in: custom.css”

    please let me know if it works for you
