Buddypress Social Theme - configuration


I've uploaded your Buddypress Social theme to my website and activated it. I can see how to customise the branding etc., however I can't see where or how to configure messaging/ forums settings for my members. Should I have uploaded the standard Buddypress theme first?
I'm slightly confused.

Also, do you have any video tuts available for this theme?

    Hi there @Jan

    Welcome to WPMU DEV, glad to have you aboard!

    The Social theme does not reproduce bbPress functionality (forums) or BuddyPress components (messaging, profiles, groups, etc), and there are no theme settings to override those.

    So anything that is directly related to BuddyPress or bbPress must be configured in those plugins' respective settings.

    But you do not need to upload the BuddyPress default theme, no. The Social theme is designed to work just fine on its own.

    So, BuddyPress stuff should be configured under Settings > BuddyPress, and bbPress stuff under Settings > Forums.

    I'm afraid we do not any video tutorial for the Social theme though. Is there anything specific we can help you with?

Thank NAME, for their help.
