Integrate Existing WP theme and Body of Buddypress

    Ok, I am just frustrated at this point.

    I have the template pack plugin installed and working. That is great.

    It there a file that would bring over the CSS and images to recreate the .content of any of the Buddypress themes? Right now I have the unstyled components of buddypress, which in my opinion is completely unusable, for others.

    I am surprised that someone has not written a piece of a theme that will work as a good starting point for those who already are committed to a existing design. It seems it is an all or nothing situation. Am i missing something?

    I could use a hand. This has been an incredible time suck. At this point I am about to settle with a forum and extend profiles. Sorry, very frustrated, even this website has been tough to find things on lately. I have followed the Buddypress development for a year now. It was one of the reasons I went with WordPress and not Drupal. Still glad about that choice but wish I could get this to work.

    Yes. As stated in a few threads, the extra bp folders that are added to your theme, need to be edited. You have to open up those files, look for the div=content and change them to match your exisiting theme.

    It’s mostly copy& paste grunt work. no css edits, just changing/adding any needed divs.

    Tested it once, BP Template Pack activated does include the basic CSS necessary to style the different core components – http://svn.wp-plugins.org/bp-template-pack/trunk/bp.css

    You could customize template pack’s css in your WP theme’s style.css to match say, link or background colors to match your theme

    Btw, check the source view of your BP-enabled pages and see if the link to the bp.css from template pack is rendered there, it should be.
