    As the header on that page says that component has been depreciated any theme should be basically compatible with buddypress “out of the box” more info can be found here:

    I read this as well, but it still not working.
    I’m using attitude theme
    I created child theme and created buddypress.php and only create group works.
    However, register page is blank and forums page is showing: ”

    idk usually works pretty good. maybe something is screwy with your install. i’d start by trying to isolate the theme itself and any plugins you maybe running if that doesn’t work id try a completely fresh install of wp on the same server if thats still problem it suggests theres something wrong on the server level.

    I asked developer of the theme, he just said the theme is not compatible with buddypress…

    Took a look at your site. It looks nice. But I do see that all the BP pages are not outputting any content. It’s all blank. Even the “By” line is empty, where I assume it would show the page author.

    When you are in your buddypress.php file is it including another inner template file to display content? If so, have you tried deleting all of that and just putting in <?php the_content();?> in the loop of buddypress.php? I’m wondering if this theme has some fancy default content loop that is filtering out BP stuff.

    On the Members page it is outputting the BP member loop (member names, recent activity timestamp, etc) and pagination and all of the other BP member content all into a single paragraph. It appears that the_content is stripping out all of the BP HTML and just displaying the raw data. I’d look into the theme’s content loop, and then also look into the related functions (functions.php most likely).
