deleting broken themes (5 posts)

    I downloaded a buddy press theme and it now states, "The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template." and "The parent theme is missing. Please install the "bp-default" parent theme."

    I cannot find the bp-default anywhere and can't figure out how to uninstall it without it. It is messing up the ability to properly use widgets on the theme I want to use.

    Please tell me how to fix this!

    If you can’t delete the theme from the WordPress admin, access your site via FTP and delete the theme. This info will explain: http://codex.wordpress.org/FTP_Clients

    "The parent theme is missing. Please install the "bp-default" parent theme."

    You downloaded a child theme of the BP Default Theme which means you need to install/activate BuddyPress plugin (which contains the bp-default theme) for that BuddyPress theme to work.

    When I try to install the BP default theme I get error message about a css file missing. What do I do now?

    @Infiknit You don't need to install BP Default theme, it's already been installed with the BuddyPress plugin. You just need to activate it. What versions of BP and WP are you using?
