Re: Confused about Member & Home themes

Burt Adsit


It is a little confusing. There are two themes to deal with.

A blog theme : bp home theme or wpmu theme

A member theme: bp member theme

The bp home theme is optional. It runs as a regular wpmu theme. If you don’t run this on a blog you are running a standard wpmu theme.

The bp member theme is *not* optional and it’s not a normal wpmu theme. Doesn’t even install in the regular place. Is never activated by a blog or site admin. At the moment you have no choice but to run the bp member theme.

The setting in the backend ‘buddypress > select theme to use for member pages’ is irrelevant at the moment. In the future when you or others develop alternative member themes, that is where you would select them.

You have two themes. One mandatory member theme and a choice of what blog theme to use.
