BuddyPress theme kills BBPress theme…

  • My previous posts in BBPress about ongoing issues have largely been ignored. I sincerely hope I can find some responses here.

    Wordpress is installed.
    BBPress is installed (BBPress 2010 theme)
    Just installed Buddypress and tried to run with the default theme… but get the error message: ‘Your active theme does not include bbPress template files. Your forums are using the default styling included with bbPress.’


    Can someone please shed some light on this recurring problem? 2010 is the only theme I’ve been able to get working and now I’d like to add BuddyPress, I’m facing the same problem.

    Does it have to be this hard?

    Truly exasperated.

  • Look like BuddyPress’ has a version (what version?) of bbPress built in. Aside from the activity stream, looks like creating forums and topics is fully supported in BuddyPress. Combine it with Group Email Notifications plugin for BuddyPress and you have a pretty nice and fully functional forum. I tried bbPress 2.0 plugin too, but found it incompatible/too many issues. Best bet right now is to do a base install of WP + BuddyPress 1.2 then use BuddyPress’ Forum Setup menu item. Do Not Install bbPress 2.0 plugin atop this.
