BuddyPress Themes « Community

Welcome, guest!

Feel free to read the blog, browse for themes, or join the club.

The community forums are currently being phased out. At the end of February or early March 2012, you will no longer be able to post here. This is because the entire site is being restructured. Please use the main forums for discussions.

BuddyPress Themes

  1. Some of you have expressed interest in me building some BuddyPress themes on top of the Hybrid theme framework. I've always thought this was a great idea.

    What is BuddyPress?

    Basically, it's a set of WPMU plugins that turn it into a full-fledged social network, allowing user profiles and blogs.

    Everything is modular, so you only use the components you want.

    BuddyPress for WordPress (not MU)

    What? BuddyPress will also be getting a release as a set of plugins for a typical WordPress install. This is going to be huge because many people have a hard time setting up WPMU. This will remove that entry barrier and allow more bloggers to enjoy setting up social networks.

    I think the only thing that would be missing is the multi-blog functionality of MU. Of course, you probably still wouldn't want to run BuddyPress on a typical shared hosting setup.

    Opening up the floor

    BuddyPress is brand new, so there's not a lot that's been done as far as themes are concerned. Heck, I don't even know where to start.

    So, I'm opening up the floor for all of you to share ideas, concepts, or anything.

  2. A BuddyPress theme would be great. I am really looking forward to its release. This will open up so much for social sites using Wordpress.

  3. Justin, please do it!

    Have a look at this: http://socialpyme.com

  4. Justin - please note Buddypress 1.2 for standard WP is now being tested! Have you had any chance to look at developing Hybrid for Buddypress? As you say I think this is potentially huge.
