Broken Themes – bp-default is missing
I’ve created a child theme following the instructions here. My style.css file looks like this:
I take it there is no need for an import function here because buddypress does it automatically?
The only template file overwritten is header.php, which I moved to the new theme folder then got rid of the search bar.
The child theme works fine on the frontend and it inherits all the rest from the bp-default theme as it should.
However, as soon as the theme is activated, wp-admin/themes.php displays the error below, and both bp-default and the child theme disappear from the page:
The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.
My community The parent theme is missing. Please install the “bp-default” parent theme.
To make the bp-default theme or my child theme reappear in wp-admin/themes.php I have to deactivate buddypress and activate it again. But as soon as I switch to my theme, same issue.
I’m on wp 3.5.2 and bp 1.7.3.
What I’ve tried so far:
– manual reinstall of wordpress via FTP
– manual reinstall of buddypress via FTP
What’s really strange is that the theme works ok, the error is just in the backend.
