    I’m really confused as to how to install buddypress themes so I will start at the beginning. I’m running the Avenue K9 them on my buddypress install. A member has signed up and created a blog. At the moment the blog is using the classic theme which is installed in wp-content/themes.

    1. Does the avek9 member theme change the appearance of the blog so it looks similiar to my main site?

    2. If so where should I install it and how do I activate it?

    3. If not what exactly are member themes?

    Thanks!

  • In one word: no.

    In BP 1.1, themes will work more like regular wordpress themes. I suggest you wait until then or develop your custom theme from a development version.

    So if I’m understanding correctly, my members create blogs and they just use standard WordPress themes which I upload to wp-content/themes and activate via Site Admin?

    Yes :)

    I just installed smashingtheme but unlike classic the buddypress bar isn’t appearing at the top. I assume I have to add that bit of coding in somewhere to one of the php files?
