    I had been using the template pack and everything looked great but I am wanting to switch over to using the new built in BuddyPress ability to work with themes.

    I de-activated the template pack and deleted the folders like this page says. http://codex.buddypress.org/bp-17-upgrading-template-packed-themes/

    I also created a buddypress.php file and copied the themes page.php contents to it. This does not work I am sure I am just missing a step or setting somewhere in there. Here is a pastebin of my buddypress.php file. http://pastebin.com/EYRqCeP6

    Any ideas? Thanks for any help!

    Some more information. I am using BuddyPress 1.8 and WordPress 3.5.2.

    I found that if I have the template pack enabled and working that if I go into the settings and check Disable BP Template Pack CSS that it breaks the theme like if I remove the template pack. So I must be missing some css in order to make my theme work with BuddyPress.

    I am currently trying to work through this but if anyone has some ideas I would certainly love to hear them.

    – What theme are you using?
    – Can you see buddypress.css and buddypress.js in source view of your BP site?
    – Did you check if BP Theme Compatiblity is working in your Twenty Twelve theme?

    I am using the Sahifa theme from themeforest. http://themeforest.net/item/sahifa-responsive-wordpress-newsmagazineblog/2819356

    I do see the css and js in the source.

    
    <link rel='stylesheet' id='bp-parent-css-css'  href='http://devlodge.dev/wp-content/themes/sahifa/buddypress/css/buddypress.css?ver=1.8' type='text/css' media='screen' />
    <script type='text/javascript' src='http://devlodge.dev/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-templates/bp-legacy/js/buddypress.js?ver=1.8'></script>
    

    Yes, Twenty Twelve works like it is suppose to. I am at a loss why this isn’t working. The theme developer says it isn’t made for BuddyPress so it is hard to get support from them. Unless I know what specific needs to be changed I might be able to go back to them and ask them to check it out.

    I had one more quick question. Is there a huge downside to using the template pack? I keep seeing people say to not use it because it is already basically built into BuddyPress but what other reasons are there? Has the plugin been totally removed from the WordPress repository?

    @scottwermter Yes the plugin has been removed from the WP plugin repo. Looks like I template-packed Sahifa Theme before. Using just one file, check if you can now take advantage of BP Theme Compatibility with code posted at http://bpsocialnetwork.wordpress.com/2013/07/28/sahifa-theme-themeforest-2/

    Thanks @mercime . It is not perfect but I think with that and some css work I can get it. I did have to remove the endif; from the code on that page.

    
    <?php endwhile; endif; ?>
    

    Thanks again for your help.
