[Resolved] New Buddypress Default Themes
Greetings buddypress gurus and followers like me,
I have been playing around with buddypress quite a lot recently and realized that it is probably the best thing that has happened to business communities trying to expand their network online – especially valuable organizations with zero revenue. It’s awesome and powerful!
Just wondering why no one has made another buddypress default theme (with different look and feel) that is updatable, similarily to how wordpress themes are updatable. I see that the theme area is empty on this website, so perhaps there are plenty in development, but still, why? I am not a programmer, though the buddy press default install is really easy so I managed that for my non-profit organization. It took me a week to make the header taller, just to find out that all my hard work will be replaced with an update.
Just create a child theme you say? Well, that’s great, but way too complicated and there are no clear directions anywhere on how to do this for someone who does not know how to code but willing to follow VERY detailed, step by step instructions on where to put what code where, etc,… You laugh, but it would take you 5 min perhaps – but for me months to figure out…
and besides, wouldn’t that coding be different for each theme? So,… that doesn’t work for the general buddypress population demographic with less programming skills like me.
Just some thoughts,…. perhaps I’m the only one who has these ideas…. but wondering what you all think. Please commment and let me know if you think more buddypress default themes would help.
