Upgrading to 1.1-rc/1.1-beta
There are a few things to be aware of when upgrading to 1.1-rc/1.1-beta.
- BuddyPress no longer uses a two theme setup, one theme controls everything on your installation. To use the new theme setup you must remove your /wp-content/bp-themes/ folder and move the new themes to the /wp-content/themes/ folder.
- Your themes are backwards compatible if you do not wish to use the new theme setup. You can simply leave your bp-themes folder in place. However, you will not see many of the new features of 1.1 and there is no guarantee of future support in coming versions.
- BuddyPress now expects bbPress to be in a specific location /plugins/buddypress/bp-forums/bbpress/ as it no longer uses XML-RPC. You must have bbPress installed in that location to use group forums. You can still use an external installation of bbPress, but BuddyPress will use its own internal bbPress files with your bbPress DB to load forums within BuddyPress.
