Yes that is what I am referring to the 103 theme. I used the current buddypress default theme when I did the update (to get the site working), but it appears to be a blogging theme (a more traditional WordPress one) and not a social networking theme like the 103 was. My home page had no blog at all on it and was oriented to widgets that provided resources and the blog area was on another page. I would like to get the 103 theme working in a compliant version but it is not listed in the themes section so I assumed it had not been updated. If you know where there is a compatible version please let me know and I will check it out (it would save me many hours of work).
Will do – anyone know what it would take to make that theme compliant? I would guess a number of people would benifit from it.
I just had a pile of hours in that theme and the page was very nice, not really a blog on the home page, but it appears it is not upgradable. I think it was the “BuddyPress Default Home Theme 1.0.3 by Andy Peatling” which used widgets. I guess I can use any wordpress theme so I will hunt around for a similar one.
I appreciate all your help
Well I think the only problem was the theme. The theme used in 1.1.2 was that parent child thing. When I put the bp-default from 1.2.8 in everything works (so far). However everything REALLY looks bad. so off to themeville. Still wonder about splog signups, do I need to do anything?
Thanks – I will give it another try (I backed it out already). I have some people that did work on their blogs that want to use it again so I did not want to clean out their work. related question; is the splogger situation better (thats what killed it for me originally) I would like to moderate any new registration and keep the spammers away.
Thanks again for your help.
You are correct there are dozens of threads out there and most of them are from when I put my buddypress site on hold (ver. 103 late 2009- 20010) because i could not control splogs. I tried all the suggestions from the posts but still had sploggers working around everything. I am researching the environment now to get the site up and running and it does not seem to have changed much. It has been the #1 thorn-in-the-side of Buddypress and still appears to be so. I have spent hours on this and would appreciate an answer, also.
This is probably going to sound stupid, but I copied and pasted the example code from the readme and (as it is late) I did not notice there were single quotes around the whole thing. Not sure why they are there but I ended up grabbing the bottom one unknowingly and it took me a bit to realize it was why I was getting a parsing error.
But now all is well and as soon as I can find a bbPress version of the default buddypress template I am golden.
Thanks for this it is a huge help to provide integration.
