    Tom, thank you for your reply. Yes the styel.css is in the themes folder in the zip file.

    Still not be able to load it up using WP dashboard. I have checked the install.txt file in the docs folder in the zip file. This is what it says:

    Installing and using BBpress themes from WPMU DEV

    *All our themes will always be updated and working with latest stable version of BBpress.

    Installing the BBpress Theme

    1. Unzip the downloaded zip file

    2. You should see several files and folders depending on your theme package

    3. Upload the entire contents of the themes/ folder but not the themes/ directory itself to bb-templates/

    4. Login to your dashboard >> Appearance and activate the theme

    *Make sure your install path is bb-templates/ not bb-templates/themes/thethemename/

    For this theme under bb-templates/ you should have:


    I have no bb-templates folder anywhere under www/[my site]/wp-content/themes

    Thank you

    I have pinged the dev, i just installed it without any problems so have no idea why yours failed :slight_frown:

    You could always try manually uploading it via ftp to your themes folder then try activating it (pay attention to the child theme and mu plugins folder)

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
