Re: WordPress MU 2.8.1 Released



There seems to be an issue with bp-themes in the wp-content/bp-themes directory. There does not appear to be anywhere to activate theme.

According to instructions in the readme, BuddyPress themes (other than the default ‘bpmember’ theme need to be activated before they are used).

Based on the instructions in the readme in the bp-themes directory I looked for a menu “Site Admin -> BuddyPress”. This menu doesn’t exist (although this is the menu that the instructions say is needed to activate Buddypress Themes).

I then went to the “BuddyPress -> General Settings Menu”. This has a dropdown list “Select theme to use for BuddyPress generated pages”. This dropdown is listing the wordpress themes and not the buddypress themes like bpskeleton which comes with the 1.02 download. There is nowhere I can find to activate the BuddyPress themes so that they appear in this list. In the dropdown above, I tried selecting one of the themes listed e.g. “wordpress mu homepage”. Once I apply it and go to the buddyPress-generated pages like “/members”, “/groups” or “/blogs” I see this message:

You do not have any BuddyPress themes installed.

Please move “/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/” to “/wp-content/bp-themes/” and refresh this page. You can download more themes here.


My installation is a clean install from wpmu 2.8.1 with buddypress 1.0.2
