WordPress + BuddyPress?

    I have a WordPress blog, and now want to add the features of BuddyPress to my site. If I download the BuddyPress plugin, and activate it, does this keep my current wp blog the way it is, and add a separate BP application to the site, or does it change the WP to BP? If so, what happens to everything currently on the site?

    It does not change any of your posts or pages, however it does require that a compatible BuddyPress theme is running and that means you will need to do a little work if you have a theme in use already and don’t want to use the bp-default theme bundled with BP.

    To modify an existing theme to work with BP you need to run the template pack plugin, details of which and step by step guide you will find in the BP codex.

    Thank you Hugo. You’ve answered my question, and I feel comfortable going forward with the installation.
