Incompatible with the latest BP. Ancient Theme.

Just a warning to all the other brave Theme Seekers:

It seems this theme has been abandoned by developer (last updated in 2012). It does not work with the latest (at the time) Buddy Press 2.0.1... There isn't much visible support presence in the forum. I'm pretty sure you can get it to work with some elbow grease. But if you are a non-developer, not much help.

I have had exactly the same problem that another person reported in the support forum.

Here is the message when attempting to install:

The parent theme could not be found. You will need to install the parent theme, bp-default, before you can use this child theme.

Doesn't work with latest versions of Buddypress (1.9 and up)
By , for WP 3.9.1

Not worth the download, as you cannot use this theme with the latest version of Buddypress. Tried for an hour figuring out how to fix it, and then I read about Buddypress not supporting their own parent theme anymore. So this child theme Frisco won't work.

Super Free BuddyPress theme!
By , for WP 3.8.1

Frisco is for me the best free theme for BuddyPress out there, especially when you don't know your CSS.
It is easily customisable, and you can add your own PHP functions or CSS if you want.

Nice Theme and well set out.
By , for WP 3.6.1

I really like this theme..
It provides a nice looking site with minimal options to mess up when an update comes along.

Does conflict with a few plugins, but, swapping back to default theme them back to Frisco re-sets everything and it all works again.

Very elegant

Very elegant, it could be better, but still a very good theme.

Good Job
By , for WP 3.5.1

Alot of good work done on this template. I hope to contribute some things back to this theme in the future.

Very different
By , for WP 3.4.2

Different. Sleek. Sexy. Extra functionality. Makes clever use of space.

Has conflict with Buddypress Links, however.
