Can't get wordpress membership plugin to work with scholar theme

I have just installed and activated the wordpress membership plugin on a Buddypress Multisite install and when going to the main site's dashboard to configure settings for the plugin it kept redirecting me to my theme's settings. I use the scholar theme on my main site, which i have downloaded from wpmu yesterday. I was not aware that there are some issues with the scholar theme and the membership plugin up until trying the basic BP theme without having any issues.
I would like to use the scholar theme along with the membership plugin. Any idea what's creating the bug.

Thanks in advance.
