Need to Have Fresh Install of Buddypress and BP Template Pack

    Hello,

    So I previously used the BP Template pack plugin for a previous theme, and now that I’ve changed themes, I need to use it again. The problem I’m getting is that it won’t go back to Step 1. It starts off at Stage 3 for me every time. How can I get rid of all previous files and fragments from my previous Buddypress and BP Template Pack plugin in my database?

    Basically, I am trying to do a completely 100% fresh install of Buddypress with a new theme. The theme is made to work with Buddypress, but only with the BP Template Pack plugin. I can’t get that plugin to start from the beginning. I tried to delete everything from the database, but I must have missed something because it isn’t letting me start a fresh buddypress or template pack install. I also deleted both plugins from WordPress, of course.

    TL;DR: I need to get rid of all previous Buddypress and Template Pack files from the database and WordPress so that I can start all over again with Buddypress on a new theme.

    Thanks.

    @neodoxa That happens when the BP folders like /activity, /members, etc. were previously transferred to into your active theme already. Delete those BP folders, after backing up if you’ve made changes to those BP templates within already, or choose a new theme and BP Template Pack will start with Step 1.

    P.S. Congratulations on critterhub.com, content is still interesting and has grown a lot. I must say you made “Hedgehog Diet” an interesting read. Bravo! :-)

    @mercime Thanks for the reply!

    The theme came with folders called activity, members, etc.

    I need to delete these stock theme files out of the theme through FTP before I can use the Template Pack plugin?

    Maybe the problem has something to do with having Buddypress and Template pack installed before on the same database… Maybe it is interfering with the new theme’s compatibility?

    I think that I would like to just wipe out everything from the past that is buddypress and template pack related, starting completely from scratch. Is there some sort of link on how to do this?

    @mercime Thanks for the compliments on my website. It’s coming along… slowly but surely. The last piece of the puzzle for me is getting a completed Buddypress integration with forums.

    @neodoxa No. DO NOT delete those stock theme files. This means that you don’t need to install/activate the BP Template Plugin at all. But if you did make revisions on those BP template files, I would delete your rocket-made theme folder in server and re-upload a clean copy of the theme.

    You’re getting there. Create a new topic if you have any issues with the forums. Good luck.
