Frisco for BuddyPress
How do I install Frisco with BP Compatibility Plugin? (14 posts)

    So I have installed Buddypress in a custom built theme using the BP Compatibility Plugin to automatically transfer Buddypress files into my custom theme folder. With that, the bp-default template is included. How do I use the Frisco themes styles instead?

    That won't work.

    The theme is meant to be activated on its own.

    You could try cherry-picking some CSS from the Frisco theme and then including it in your theme's stylesheet, but it would not be easy because it's not meant to be used this way.

    Hello,

    I just downloaded this theme and I received the following error message.

    "Broken Themes

    The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.
    Name Description
    Frisco for BuddyPress The parent theme is missing. Please install the "bp-default" parent theme."

    How can I fix this? Please advise.

    @VirtualOfficeCenter

    It doesn't sound like you have activated the BuddyPress plugin. Make sure you have installed and activated the BuddyPress plugin (1.5+) before attempting to activate the Frisco for BuddyPress child theme.

    Thanks David, I added all the plugins but that one. It's now working.

    Hello,

    My next question is going through the BP Compatibility and I see all the requested folders accept the 'registration' folder. It is not in the folder with the others. Any suggestions?

    going through the BP Compatibility

    I'm not totally clear on what you mean here. But if you're referring to the BP Template Back or BP Backwards Compatibility plugins, you don't need either one. All Frisco for BuddyPress theme needs to work is the default BuddyPress plugin.

    Frisco is a child theme of the bp-default theme in the BuddyPress plugin. So if Frisco is missing folders, they are found in the bp-default theme and you can copy those over to Frisco and then customize them to override bp-default.

    Thanks David. The BP Template Pack is recommended for Frisco but I did remove.

    Definitely not. Did you read that somewhere else?

    The BP Template Pack is meant to convert a regular WordPress theme into a BuddyPress ready theme.

    Frisco is a BuddyPress child theme and does not need the template pack.

    Copy over page.php from bp-default into the Frisco theme folder. And then remove the comments_template function.

    I want to remove the comments from is the static page I'm using as the home page and the aboutus page. I see index.php in the wp-content folder and in the plugins folder. Do I move one of these to the frisco for buddypress folder? I don't have a bp-default folder.

    @VirtualOfficeCenter - The bp-default folder is located at plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default.

    Frisco is a child theme of the bp-default theme and uses files located their, if you need to modify a file that is not included in frisco - then you will need to copy the version that is inside bp-default and move it to the frisco folder before modifying it.

    Having a read of http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes might help you out if you haven't read it yet. :)

    Thanks Chris.

    Just today I was talking out David's instructions with one of my mentors. We found the bp-default and the page.php. I deleted the comment line out of the page.php and it now displays correctly.

    Thank you for your response.
