    So it's moved my files around and my index is full of BP material, but I'd like my theme to be BP free now.
    How can I change back everything this plugin does?


  2. It shouldn't have moved any of your files. If you just turn off this plugin and the BuddyPress plugin, it goes away.

    I'm not so sure about that because when you use it, it tells you something about how it has to move a bunch of files over, you tell it "ok", it does it and declares success.
    It's just a little scary because I have no idea the future effect of doing this after having uninstalled this and Buddypress itself.

    Yeah, I'm not sure about it either. Someone else had installed BuddyPress and the BP Template Pack plugin on this site I am working on, and the BuddyPress links weren't working right (they all just redirected to the homepage), so I am debugging.

    1. deactivated and deleted both BuddyPress and the BP Template Pack within the WordPress admin section.
    2. downloaded and uploaded the original BuddyPress and BP Template Pack plugins via FTP.
    3. activated BuddyPress.
    4. activated BP Template Pack.
    5. go to Appearance - BP Compatibility

    It says "Step Three - Now that the template files are in the correct location..." and goes on to describe the steps for fixing alignment in BuddyPress pages by tweaking HTML.

    How do I force the BP Template Pack to go back to step 1? Or otherwise, where else can I see the complete list of steps this thing walks you through?

    P.S. I'm on WP 3.0, BuddyPress, TemplatePack 1.0.2

    Just delete these folders in the theme folder you are using:

    • activity
    • blogs
    • forums
    • groups
    • members
    • registration

    then if you want it fully removed deactivate bp and the template pack and delete them.

    Turning off the plugin is NOT enough. It leaves the theme files littered with BuddyPress code. And worse, it appears to have moved the original theme files to some undisclosed location, because editing the theme files now has no effect at all. It is like the site is calling theme files from elsewhere. Example: editing index.php of my theme has no effect at all, yet somehow the version before I installed BuddyPress is still working. Haven't figured out what I need to edit where yet to get rid of the BuddyPress markup, or even edit my theme for that matter.
