Where do I get the theme shown in the Intro Video?

  • That’s the 1.0/1.1 theme. It’s out of date and doesn’t work any more.

    DANG! It looks fabulous. Is there NO way to get it now?

    I mean, why did they decide to keep the one they did, instead of that gorgeous one?


    I’ve installed 1.1 and buddypress from trac. How do I get that theme now?



    @addisonkirk you really, really, like the theme :-) Move bp-sn-parent theme folder from
    wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/ folder to wp-content/themes/ folder

    Maybe after installing it, you might want to port the design to BuddyPress 1.2, but it’s not that easy.

    @mercime Thank you for your help! I did as you said, but in the admin it still says:

    Your currently active theme is not BuddyPress enabled.
    Visit to browse themes that include support for BuddyPress features.

    What do I do?



    I really shouldn’t encourage you to continue with BP 1.1 series nor using old WPMU versions:-) … but that BP 1.1 series requires WPMU 2.8.4a (per old record of mine) Click on download link near bottom of page
    BP 1.2 series support single WordPress

    Thanks! I appreciate the help. I had 2.9.2 installed. I’ll try 2.8.4a.



    @addisonkirk seriously, I would only recommend that for studying the theme to port it to BP 1.2, In addition, if you want to have forums, the installation process is much more complicated than the easy forum set up we now have with BP 1.2. In fact’s detailed and helpful article on how to set it up in old WPMU and BP version is no longer available online.

    It worked! Thank you SO much @mercime and @DJPaul! Why not use this version?

    Is there any way to get this theme on the new version? I am creating a Motion Picture Casting site. The main part of my site is allowing users to create a profile for themselves (an online application, basically), and then join a group to apply for a acting role in specific projects we have coming up.




    Why not use this version?

    Because as djpaul mentioned above, it’s outdated. WP 3.0.1 single or multisite with BP is the way to go. In addition to stronger WP security and better features, you’ll be missing out on the BP plugin extension goodness which are only available and actively developed for current BP version –

    Is there any way to get this theme on the new version?

    Ah, it’s do-able but porting it would take some time to do so with all the customization in layout and coding to make it work with BP There are free and premium BP child/regular themes which can further customize to taste. And, if you have WP theme, use BP Template Pack to bring over BP social networking goodness.

    Cool. I’ve always wanted to play a vampire :-) Kidding aside, BP and WP 3.0.1 install is the way to go. If you haven’t yet, check these out
    Many have customized BuddyPress themes and majority are on latest BP/WP versions.
