Adding BuddyPress to theme Arras (5 posts)

    hi guys,
    I have added the BuddyPress (BuddyPress.org) to my newly developed website (www.RateItForMe.com) and have installed the BuddyPress Template Pack as well. However, for some reason the functions for BuddyPress does not work and when you click on the Top Menu bar links nothing happens.

    So after some research I think I learned that the WP themes have to be BuddyPress compatible.

    http://buddypress.org/extend/themes/

    My question is: #1) since I installed the Plugin for BuddyPress temeplates do I need to still modify my Arras theme as suggested here: http://codex.buddypress.org/how-to-guides/building-a-buddypress-child-theme/

    #2) is this issue a theming issue? or a buddypress issue? thanks for your help in advance, I am new to WordPress :)

    I noticed a small white dot on the front page slide view.

    when I removed the TDO mini forms, the white dot went away.

    I had to reinstall the whole thing to figure that out and thought I would share :)

    and since the buddypress didnt work with Arras I had to click on Appearance, BP Compatibility until the links on BP Buddypress worked! that also took me a while to figure out!
