    We are launching a buddypress multi-network soon.
    It will be a single buddypress install but there will be lots of separate individual networks linked to it and all will be using unique different domains.

    We are looking for a theme that is:

    - responsive
    - looks professional
    - has some live demos/examples of others using it.

    So far I like the Social theme from wpmudev site.
    What do you think of the social theme?
    Should I go ahead or are there any better suggestions?

    Thank you for your help.

    BuddyPress 1.7 is coming soon and will work on any WordPress theme. If you are not in a hurry you might want to choose a responsive WordPress theme

    @modemlooper Thank you for your response.

    Any idea about when BP 1.7 is coming?

    Actually I am in a hurry and want to have the site(s) online within a week or so.
    The sites don’t have to be fancy but need to be launched soon. I thought of choosing social theme because I am afraid of making lots of changes again if I choose a different theme later.

    “BuddyPress 1.7 is coming soon and will work on any WordPress theme. If you are not in a hurry you might want to choose a responsive WordPress theme”

    Are you saying that all the regular wordpress themes will work fine with buddypress/multisite/multi-network environment when BP 1.7 comes?

    Are there any BP responsive themes that I can choose from at this moment?

    Please advise. Thank you.

    You can use a responsive WordPress theme and install the BP Template Pack plugin to make your WP theme compatible with BuddyPress. We have a list of “template-packed” WP themes at http://codex.buddypress.org/theme-development/wordpress-to-buddypress-theme/#template-packed-wordpress-themes. This is the route you should take if you’re planning to launch your site this month or early next month. There’s still BP 1.6.2 coming out sometime December https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/roadmap and no set schedule as to when BP 1.7 is coming out yet.
