Installing BP1.1 but keeping WP Theme For Root Blog

    Hello,

    I’ve been testing out BP1.0.3 and now that BP1.1 is out I’m ready to do a fresh install.

    I want to keep my existing WP theme on the home/root blog and have a custom BP theme appearing only for the Buddypress pages.

    I found these notes from the How To Upgrade instructions…

    “I’ve built a completely custom WordPress theme and BuddyPress theme”

    Not a problem, in your case you need to merge the two into one single WordPress theme.

    It should be as simple as copying all of the templates from the BuddyPress theme and pasting them into the WordPress theme. Be sure to copy and paste over all of the CSS from the BuddyPress theme also.

    Once you are done, backup your /wp-content/bp-themes/ directory and remove it. This will allow the new integrated theme to work.

    Does this still apply when running a fresh install. i.e. merge the BP template files into the root blog wp theme?

    Thanks for any help on this…

    Paul
