Best and most useful responsive theme for WP 4.1+BP 2.1.1
https://buddypress.org/extend/themes/ – I am again looking at this page and this is still empty. WP repo has BP themes but none are sufficient with WP 4.1 + BP 2.1.1 – none plays nicely with horizontal menus or give good integrated appearance to an end-user who is a blogger as well as a BP user. I have been looking at premium themes, each with its own incomplete media solution – buddyboss.com and rtcamp.com Inspirebook theme – the latter appears slower on the demo but has interesting display of the activity stream in the form of cards or boxes like G+ and allows to put profile cover photo (which buddyboss do not have)
I will like to know the community’s experience with these premium themes ( as there is no core responsive eye-candy BP theme) or if there is any equivalent or better free theme in the WP repo or github (that will have support for future versions)
– which is faster
– which gives better integration with WP blogging [ none of the premium demos have “add blog post” interface – the point is that when one end-user goes to add a blog post he should not be thrown out of the BP theme]
– best responsiveness and mobile friendliness, in general and w.r.t photo uploads ( rtcamp media costs around $250 with plugin and plugin’s plugins, buddyboss probably around $50, none comes with default photo tagging = marking directly on photo )
In general pros and cons of these premium themes or an useful comparative study is what I or most users are looking for.
Speed – demo is faster for buddyboss
Eye-candy – buddyboss more, while rtcamp offers a fresh twist to display of activity stream
Privacy and Follow – dunno
Media – each has its own incomplete solution, dunno how the free or paid other plugins work into these themes
Features – buddyboss has no profile cover photo, activity display is conventional stream
Shortcomings – none allows to post a blog or event from site activity or own activity/profile page, none allows to favorite/like/star a blog post or any post from the post page to the stream or vice versa. None of their media solutions integrates into the WP media, so users always remains confused about a central repo of their uploaded picture files!
