BuddyPress Template Pack is a Totally Tubular plugin that helps you to bring BuddyPress functionality to any WordPress theme. And now, after a bit of elbow grease, the latest version (1.2) is fully compatible with the so-close-it-hurts BuddyPress 1.5!
BPTP works, in brief, by copying over some necessary template files from BuddyPress into your existing theme, where you can customize them to your heart’s content. In order to protect any customizations that you may already have made if you’re already using the Template Pack with a BuddyPress 1.2.x site, BPTP won’t overwrite the any BP-specific template files in your theme, even after upgrading to BPTP 1.2 and BP 1.5. If you’re upgrading, and you’d like to get the shiny new templates from BP 1.5, you’ll need to remove the BP template directories from your theme (
registration), and hit “Reset” under Dashboard > Appearance > BP Compatibility. If you’ve previously made customizations to the BP templates copied into your theme, you’ll then have to copy those changes over to the newly moved template files. Sound like a lot of work? Don’t worry – the template changes between BuddyPress 1.2.10 and BuddyPress 1.5 are not huge, so it’s likely that your old templates will continue to work just fine. In any case, make sure you back up your theme before attempting any monkey business!
Special thanks to r-a-y, who did most of the work to make BuddyPress Template Pack compatible with the latest BuddyPress. Woo hoo, r-a-y!

Great News 🙂 I’m loving the bp-default but tested the template pack minutes ago with TwentyEleven theme, the plugin works so well out of the box, just little css editing needed to get the theme working as desired.

Ive just downloaded and installed the BP theme pack. Ive installed on wordpress 3.2.1. Ive followed the instructions but some how, all blew up. Including wordpress.
