How to setup Buddypress Scholar


I am having trouble setting up our Buddypress Scholar theme.

Which plugins do I need to set this up like the demo? Buddypress and bbPress?

Is there any documentation for this theme?

Please tell me what I need to do to set up the theme similar to the Scholar demo.

    If you wish to use BuddyPress and bbPress then you would just install those as normal and configure them as you wish.

    What trouble were you having? Any errors? Something else?

    All of the theme options are here:

    Admin --> Appearances --> Theme options


    And Preset Styling:

    Admin --> Appearances --> Preset Styling


    You can also have Custom Styling:

    Admin --> Appearances --> Custom Styling


    All the rest are just widgets, reading settings, content etc, etc. i.e. default WordPress features.

    If you have any specific questions please let me know, I can then address them more precisely for you.

    Take care.

    Hi Timothy,

    This must have been a misunderstanding with my developer.

    Although the site actually was not working right, after I got your message I went to the plugins section and noticed that the BuddyPress and bbPress plugins needed to be updated.

    So I updated them and activated them - and now the theme work perfectly and all of the features are active and function properly.

    So in my case, I think part of the problem was that the plugins needed to be updated.

    Thank you.
