Buddypress 1.2 theme updates: business and magazine

Business and Magazine are now compatible with BuddyPress 1.2. From now on unless you are using the updates to these themes will not work. A key point is around the templates. You will see new instructions under install.txt however I'll cover them here. They main key is if you are in your child using home.php it will not work for the new theme structure you have to set your templates as outlined here:

How to set up the home page template:

By default it will either show activity or your blog posts as your home page.
You can change this however by using the following steps:

To set activity as your home page:
1. Make a page called blog and do not select a template leave it as default
2. Under settings > general select front page display to A static page
3. Set the front page to activity stream
4. Set the posts page to blog

Now you will have it using the activity stream as the front page

To set the custom home page template:

1. Make a page called home under your pages and select to use the homepage template make sure you set in the page order for this to be your first page showing - you have to make sure you have the home page as your the lowest page number for this to work so make sure you give all your other pages a page number
2. Make a page called blog and do not select to use a template just leave it as default
3. Go to settings > reading and set front page displays to A static page
4. Set the front page to use homepage
5. Set the posts page to use blog

Now you will have it using the home page template as your home page

We hope you enjoy these updates and BuddyPress 1.2. Our other themes will be updated shortly.
