Is Blackbird Compatible with BuddyPress? (1 post)

    Hi folks. My understanding is that the new BuddyPress (v1.8.1) is compatible with all, or at least most WordPress themes. I just did a theme search in the Install Themes page, with the BuddyPress box selected, and it only came up with 25 items. Blackbird isn't included.

    I am building a site using Blackbird (v1.1.9)which is going OK (I'm completely new to all this, but I'm making progress). However, the site is intended as a social network, so I've installed BuddyPress.

    I'm not seeing stuff I should be seeing, according to a You Tube tutorial video I'm watching. The video shows a Forum tab in the BP Settings page, which I don't have. It also shows BuddyPress additions to the menu on the website itself - which I'm also not seeing. I'm wondering whether it's a theme incompatibility, or me not doing something.

    Any help welcome.

    WP 3.7.1 installed (current)
    BP version 1.8.1 (current)
    WP Theme is Blackbird 1.1.9 (current)
    I’ve upgraded from recent versions of all of these since the summer, but I’ve had the same problem all along.

    The other plugins installed are:
    BigContact Contact Page
    Black Studio Tiny MCE Widget
    Easy Shortcode Buttons
    Jetpack by WordPress
    Page Tagger
    Simple Page Sidebars
    WP Show IDs
    WP You Tube Player

    All plugins are updated, and all except Askimet are activated.
    Blackbird is customised using its own customising functionality. Plus I have tweaked a bit of HTML, with the CSS added to the theme’s Styling Options box.

    My hosting site is Blue Host.
