New method for BP theme

    I am disappointed with new concept of BP theme. I installed the latest version under Trac which it did not allow me to choose any themes for our website while I can set a specific theme for BP members separately. Maybe I missed something to allow myself to use my own non bp theme for website itself for blogs and videos.

    I installed new themes from WPMU DEV and they are not working with latest version under Trac due to different setup for themes. Hope to see a better solution to be more flexible. Thanks!

    1. you should use the latest stable version (1.0.3)

    2. If it’s a WPMU DEV theme then you should probably talk to them in their support forum.

    When you run on the bleeding edge, you have to accept the changes!

    The BP themes that WPMU DEV currently provide are are not designed with the parent/child architecture in mind. You need to talk with them to get support.

    Details About the New Theme Architecture

    With BuddyPress version 1.1–which will be officially released in the next several weeks–there will no longer be bhome and bpmember themes. Instead, BuddyPress will adopt the parent/child theme architecture that WP 2.7 makes possible.

    Backwards compatibility will remain for a while for those that want/need to use the old theming architecture. To use the old theme architecture, you need to keep the /bp-themes/ directory. Place your old member themes in there. BuddyPress should override the new theme architecture in favor of the old one if you have a /bp-themes/ directory. However, please note that support for the old theme architecture will eventually be phased out. You will eventually need to update your themes to a parent/child architecture.
