    I’ve been working on a theme for WordPress and BuddyPress. It’s been going good and is in its second iteration now.

    First time round, I wanted to make sure I could build with all the features of BuddyPress. So during the process I created a blog and wrote about each component or “thing” as it was being added into the theme.

    http://pixelcoder.co.uk/category/day-in-review/

    I was able to complete the theme but at the end I wasn’t happy at little breaks in the design so decided to do start again. This time round the build is a little cleaner and I’m starting with WordPress only support then moving onto BuddyPress members, groups, activity, sites in that order.

    Right now I’d say i’m complete with WordPress features and will be moving onto BuddyPress next.

    However I’m feeling really isolated with this build, as if I’m doing it for no reason. I’m hoping people will actually download and use this theme. (it’s not responsive).

    So this post is really a call for people to get involved with the blog (It supports WordPress comments so far) and then once BuddyPress is integrated to the theme they will sign up.

    I need to make some buddies online, and I think this would be a pretty cool place to do it.

    Please take a look at pixelcoder.co.uk/blog and tell me what you think! I really could use the feedback.

    I’ve had a few signups since putting this post out, but no one is active yet.

    Would love to get more people involved, I plan to release some BuddyPress tutorials in the future also and maybe build a new theme for the site and record along the way.

    Anybody? :)

    @marcella1981,

    what a great work, have been to your site and the demo looks appealing. but there is no link to download and test the theme. I am missing something? even the one on github is gone.

    any new link? i will like to test the theme and may be contribute.

    Hi @funmi-omoba I should have a download link available soon but looks like im going to retire from development. Would be nice to see you involved.

    @marcella1981, It is nice to see people devoting their precious time to create something free. I have just been to your site and can see the theme looks good and you ve invested a lot of time in this project. you can count me in and let me know which area i can be of help.

    @naijaping Unfortunately I’ve decided to knock this theme on the head. Downloads have been made available of both versions that made it to the light of day.

    I’m no longer motivated to work on this design and the heavy codebase is getting me down so i’ve decided to move on.

    It probably needs a day or two of solid work to finish off all of the areas that have been built for the theme.

    Beyond that, BBPress support could be added. This is something I never got round to.

    It’s been a good exercise of working with BuddyPress, but I it is a long process when theming for BP.

    Anyway… moving on now. :)

    You’ve really done great work so far. After using Mesocolumn-Theme for the last few months and finally bought a commercial one that seemed to fit my needs I ended up on trying to work on your theme. It’s a pitty that you won’t continue as I’d be very interested in helping you out – mainly on css-issues. Maybe you start over again…
