Theme broken after upgrade to 1.5

    Just upgraded to 1.5 and my child theme is broken. It was working fine with 1.2. Now I back to a white screen when I activate my theme. I have deactivated all plugins and removed the @imports in my stylesheet since 1.5 enqueues the default stylesheet in functions.php. The default theme works fine. Upon activating my theme, my admin and front end go white causing me to rename the theme folder to deactivate the theme. My memory has already been raised in wp-config.php from my 1.2 install. Do I need to do something else to my theme? @mercime sorry for @ting you but you always have great advice.

    @Mike84 no worries. Which child theme are you using?
    There still might be a solution although I haven’t seen a child theme of BP 1.2 cause white screen in front and backend yet.

    White screens are php errors. Check your error logs, they tell you exactly what is wrong. or turn on debug.

    @mercime It is a custom child theme of bp-default. Still haven’t found the problem. Ill be working on it this evening. Ill turn on debug and see what happens.

    When you turn on debug, consider installing Theme Check plugin, Debogger plugin and Log Deprecated Notices plugin. Very helpful and used by WP theme reviewers.

    @mercime I have managed to get past the white screen. It was due to my template, Roots Framework, use get_template_directory(). The template directory would now be bp-default. I changed this to get_stylesheet_directory() and my template is loading but its not loading my css. Any ideas there? The site can be viewed at http://www.cozanigera.org/web if that helps at all.

    Mike84, typo in your link? It’s going nowhere. So if you were using Roots Framework, you created a child theme of that framework and installed the BP Template Pack plugin. Which stylesheet is it not loading? I would assume that if you have child theme, you’d either import or enqueue the stylesheet of your parent theme.

    I decided to scrap the roots framework and just use the Frisco theme since its already working with 1.5 and is a pretty nice theme as is. Although its a great framework, its easier to customize a working solution rather than create a working solution out of something I customized. I am contemplating creating a Roots based BP theme in the near future though. Is there a list of working 1.5 plugins yet? It seems every plugin I was using is not working… most importantly bp-media which I though was supposed to work well with 1.5. @mercime I promise not to mention you in every post I make here lol. thanks so much for your help.

    @Mike84 Cool. Do consider submitting a free version with the WP theme repo :-) https://wordpress.org/extend/themes/about/

    == Is there a list of working 1.5 plugins yet == https://codex.buddypress.org/releases/1-5-plugin-compatibility/ I’ve been using BP Gallery myself since Feb 2010

    Cheers.
