BuddyPress Template Pack


Add support for BuddyPress to your existing WordPress theme. This plugin will guide you through the process
step by step. Once you are finished, your existing WordPress theme will be able to manage and display all BuddyPress
pages and content. The process is completely reversible and does not modify any of your existing template files.


Download and install the plugin using the built in WordPress plugin installer.
If you download the plugin manually, upload the plugin to “/wp-content/plugins/bp-template-pack/”.

Activate the plugin in the “Plugins” admin panel using the “Activate” link.

Head to the “Appearance > BP Compatibility” menu and follow the step-by-step instructions.
