    A server error 500 usually means that your server ran out of memory. Could be that maybe the server is experiencing issues or for some reason your site is already using a lot of resources and your host has a php memory limit. Are you able to increase your php memory?

    I have no idea... All I know is when I inserted a ~ in front of the folder, the site started working again.. the plugin page mentioned that the current template version wasn't tested with my version of WordPress.

    Delete the wp-content/plugins/buddypress folder. Looks like BP is conflicting with your theme.

    Thanks esmi, but I have been working all along in buddy press - did not have a WP site or theme prior, used the BP default from the get go. All was fine until I installed this plug in that is supposed to help modify WP themes into BP usable themes (was investigating this bcs of the lack of BP themes available). I installed the plug in and blammo! So the problem is this plug in, not a theme :( If I delete my bp folder won't I lose everything I have set up for the new BP site?

    Try reading the error message and you'll see where the issue is.

    It is greek to me. I am not a coder or developer. I am just the Executive Director of a non-profit that serves victims of child-abduction by providing peer support after they are located, who is trying to launch this buddy-press site prior to a major event we are hosting next week. Can somebody please help the victims of child abduction we serve by helping me me fix this??

    The same function - bp_dtheme_ajax_querystring() - is being defined the studio theme (inc/ajax.php:17) and in the buddypress bp-default theme (inc/ajax.php on line 81). You cannot define the same function twice. Either the studio theme or BP has to go. If you cannot sort this out yourself, consider hiring someone to do it for you.

    Believe me, if we had the money I would certainly hire someone. I stopped collecting a paycheck myself when we lost federal funding and had to lay off all staff, including our IT guy. We are now all volunteer run.

    So if there is a conflict btw the theme and bp, why did all work fine for over a week, until I installed the plug-in Buddy Press Template Pack? (The plug in is not a template, it is a plug in that helps convert WP templates to BP templates). The issue started the moment I hit "activate" on the plug-in.

    Thanks for your help!

    If you are using the BuddyPress Default theme, or a child of that theme, or the GenesisConnect plugin, then you do not need BP Template Pack. Delete that plugin.

    I installed the BP Template Pack because I didn't want to continue using the BP Default theme - unless there is a way to change the background color of the content area (not the overall background). Is there? I have the most basic, piecemeal grasp of html & css but understand enough to follow directions if you would be so kind as to give them....

    You don't have to use the bp-default theme. But the Template Pack is only for use if your theme doesn't have BP support, and it sounds like whatever theme you've chosen already has that support built in.

    You can change anything you want in your theme, including the background color, using CSS. I'm afraid I can't tell you specific instructions because I don't know what theme you're using. I suggest downloading a tool like Firebug http://getfirebug.com, using it to find the name of your background element (maybe body, maybe #container), and then to use that selector to create a CSS declaration. Google 'css background' for more details.
