8 of the Best Free BuddyPress Themes Available

A few new BuddyPress themes are popping up on the scene and we’re featuring a few of them today. Free BuddyPress themes are still somewhat scarce, as it’s a new platform that WordPress designers have been hesitant to get into, even the premium theme makers. However, the BuddyPress community is growing and we’re sure to see more themes in the coming days. I hope this roundup saves you some time searching if you’re new to BuddyPress and looking for free themes. All of the themes featured here are compatible with BuddyPress 1.2.x.
