Re: Custom Themes or Standard BuddyPress?
I personally feel that sooner or later, we’ll be seeing a slew of themes that are BP-ready. They could be either mods of current WP themes or completely custom themes. I would imagine theme designers will start making them available to the public, as well as designing them for their own use. Not many people are going to be happy using the same theme as everybody else, which you can see because lots of people are skinning the theme and others are making BP work with standard WP themes. I’m working with the Hybrid template (http://themehybrid.com) to make a custom bp-home theme for BP.
