Silence the “BuddyPress is Ready” Message in the WordPress Dashboard

Tired of seeing this message in your dashboard? “BuddyPress is ready. You’ll need to activate a BuddyPress compatible theme to take advantage of all of the features. We’ve bundled a default theme, but you can always install some other compatible themes or upgrade your existing WordPress theme.”

You should be able to do this by adding a “buddypress” tag to the stylesheet of your theme. However, if this doesn’t stop the message from appearing, you can add this line to your wp-config.php file:

{code type=php}
define( ‘BP_SILENCE_THEME_NOTICE’, true );

This will silence the notice in your dashboard for good.
