Hey, I’ve just installed BuddyPress and BuddyPress Template Pack on the “Imbalance” theme http://wpshower.com/free-wordpress-themes/imbalance-free-wordpress-theme/ It said the install was successful whilst I was setting it up but still displays “BuddyPress is ready. You’ll need to activate a BuddyPress compatible theme to take advantage of all of the features. We’ve bundled a default theme, but you can always install some other compatible themes or upgrade your existing WordPress theme.”
The main issue is that after I’ve installed the template package no options are appearing to create a forum or group, the only options coming up in the Buddypress dropdown in the dashboard are; General Settings, Component Setup, Forums Setup, Profile Field Setup and I can’t do anything with any of them except Profile Field. I’m thinking it might be because I don’t know if my ” bbPress tables are in the same database as my WordPress tables”, I don’t seem to be able to work it out.
Really really need help with this, hope someone can!
