    could you explain what it does

    it’s a bp theme

    what is the goal of it

    to be a bp-theme, integrated with Thesis

    and who’s developing it?

    me

    what i meant is what do you mean by “integrated with Thesis”… does the theme have seperate components to integrate/bridge with the tool, or is just a theme…

    hi Nexia

    That is a child theme and will require Thesis to work, that’s what I guess, as per Detective’s post.

    Sorry to bother, but do I have to do any customisation? Do I need to buy thesis? And if so, is the customisation on the thesis theme difficult to do?

    Yes, you need to buy Thesis.

    But you can also modify this theme to suit another theme. I have a test installation using Tarski and it works ok.

    You don’t need to customize/modify anything in Thesis.

    What if you used the buddymatic framework??? Will the new BP default theme change things much for your child theme? As I like the consistency of the groups/members/blogs pages.

    Just been playing around with Tarski – seems to work fine. I’m a noob so any hints or tricks on getting a nav bar working and other things to look out for would get great … not that you haven’t done enough already.

    Looks good Detective — are there specific benefits to using Thesis integration, in terms of your Buddypress sites, or was it more that you were familiar working with Thesis?

    Great theme, but I dont understand how you change the content on homepage ? I played with widgets but my home is still a blog.

    I had a website using Thesis as theme. When BuddyPress was released, I wanted to have a matching Theme that would inherit all the functionality I already had.

    That’s what this theme does.

    @Cyberbougnat

    The widgetized home page is a page template. You need to create a page, select the template in that page, and then configure your WP installation to show that page as a “static front page”.

    I’ve been using genealogies with Tarski on a local host – works well – but I tried to upload it to my live site and I get the white screen of death.

    I adjusted the style.css file from Thesis to Tarski and the local host worked fine.

    I then uploaded the same files to my live site and both the parent and child theme appeared in the themes directory. The Tarski theme is working fine, but when I install and activate Genealogies it won;t work.

    It’s bizarre as my local install is fine.

    Is there more to configuring your child theme with Tarski than simply changing the templates?

    Sorry, I don’t know what could be the problem.

    Just a quick note: in the same folder as the file thesis.php, you can put a file tarski.php and do some customizations there ;)

    The file loaded in that folder (I don’t remember the name right now) depends on the current parent theme.

    Cool, thanks.

    I just bought the Thesis theme – same deal. I installed it locally and it works fine. Install it on the server and I get the white screen of death.

    So it must be a server issue.

    I’m having trouble getting error reporting working on the server – its Heart Internet in the UK.

    They have a “one-click” install, but obviously there is a config issue.

    Considering that I am running the latest versions of both BP and WPMU and the other themes are working fine (including BP Default) I’m kind of at a loss as to why this one child theme won’t work.

    I’ll keep trying to get the error reporting to work, but other than that, I’m not sure what to do.

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    I just check the server’s error log and it said this:

    It’s weird because style.css should be there – it’s like the server can’t grab the parent css files, yes???

    Thanks for the bp-theme! Do you provide support for it?
