MarketPress & BuddyPress and Product Theme


In the Products Theme instalation instructions there it was stated that I should install Buddy Press to gain full capability of the Theme. Actually I just want to sell via marketpress. Why should I install Buddypress?

    Hello Ecoshop,

    First off, welcome to WPMU DEV! We're glad to have you here!

    If you do not need the Buddypress social networking features on your site, then no, you won't need to install Buddypress as you wouldn't gain anything from it.

    What the theme details are referring to is basically the fact that the theme has been made with compatibility with Buddypress in mind, which is a great thing. But if you're not intending to use Buddypress functionality, there's no reason to install and use Buddypress just to access features of the theme that were made for Buddypress.

    Hope that helps!
