BP updated deleted my themes

  • maineyak


    I upadated Buddypress on 3 of my sites before I realized it was deleting every theme except the default. What’s up with that? A notice that that would happen would be nice before updating. Luckily I realized it before I updated Buddypress on my other sites. Is that normal for an update?

    No deletion of theme folders for any BP upgrade. Have you checked if the theme folders have indeed been deleted in wp-content/themes/ via FTP/FileManager/etc?



    It doesn’t, it simply disables them and moves to the incomplete folder inside the wp interface. It requires bp-default to move on, I have the same problem but no one seems to know or to care.



    It DOES delete the theme folders. I was in the directory via ftp, hit the update, refreshed ftp, and they were gone. This happened on 3 sites. I could not access the front end of my sites, as there was now no theme associated with it.

    It really doesn’t. I assume we’re talking about WP’s /themes/ folder. If you’ve been sticking themes inside /plugins/buddypress/BuddyPress-themes/, then yes, they would be removed (don’t store custom themes there).

    BP does not delete files outside it’s own directory, no plugin would any files or directories in /wp-content/themes/ would never be touched.
