                  BuddyPress Fun styles

                  The home page in BuddyPress Fun is the hub of your site’s activity. There is a feature block, built in widgets such as the recent comments and most commented and widget ready areas for you. Couple this with the ability to upload your own custom header you’ve got a flexible theme that will easily fit anything you want to do with it.

                  Unlike many other BuddyPress themes at WPMU DEV we make sure our themes give your site a total consistent look. We even theme the default BuddyPress pages. Take a look at the activity stream styling in BuddyPress Fun:

                  A WPMU DEV theme also ensures your blog posts look great with a range of text styles for your posts. Take a look at a sample blog post with the BuddyPress Fun theme.

                  Not only do you get a great theme but at WPMU DEV you also get great support in our community supportdocumentationvideos and live chat. Twice a week you can even talk directly to our theme designers so you can talk about anything relating to any of our themes. WPMU DEV really is the place to go to get a great theme and feel safe in the knowledge no matter what you want to do with your site you’ve got the support to do it.

                  As with all the WPMU DEV themes BuddyPress Fun is not only a BuddyPress theme it works with WordPress, Multisite
                  and BuddyPress. All WPMU DEV themes also have child and parent themes, we don’t make you use one core parent or have to buy a framework like other companies, we let you create your own child themes with everyone of our themes. A WPMU DEV theme really is the only complete solution you need to theme your site.

                  Discover our other BuddyPress themes:

                  Installing a theme from WPMU DEV

                  Download the theme file.

                  Unzip the file into a folder on your hard drive.

                  Upload the folder to /wp-content/themes/folder on your site:

                  • If you’re using multi-site you’ll need to visit Network Admin -> Themes and Activate it there.

                  Make sure your install path is correct for example:

                  /www/var/site/wp-content/themes/thethemename not
                  /www/var/site/wp-content/themes/themes/thethemename

                  You’ll see several files and folders depending on the theme package.  Most themes contain a folder for the parent and child theme within the folder called themes.

                  Launch FileZilla or your FTP client – read more about using FTP and FTP clients here.

                  Enter your domain name, your username and password. NOTE: the same username and password that you use to log into your cPanel.

                  Click Quickconnect.

                  Upload both the parent theme folder and child theme folder to wp-content/themes/.

                  • For example, with BuddyPress Daily theme you need to upload bp-daily and bp-daily-child to wp-content/themes/ (bp-daily folder is the parent theme folder)
                  • With Gallery you need to upload gallery and gallery-child
                    to wp-content/themes/ (gallery folder is the parent theme folder)
                  • We provide child themes with themes to enable you to customize your own files without having those changes
                    overwritten when we update a theme.
                  • To find out more about parent and children themes please visit our guide to parent and child themes.

                  Uploading parent and child themes to your theme folder on your site

                  Dragging the theme folders from your computer into theme folder in your WordPress directory uploads these new themes to your WordPress install however they aren’t enabled on a WordPress Multisite install.

                  As Super Admin user on WordPress Multisite you have the choice to enable:

                  1. The theme network wide so that all users can use the theme.
                  2. Enable access to the theme on a per site basis.
                  3. Use Pro Sites Plugin via premium-themes.php to make it available as a premium theme for Pro Sites only

                  Enabling The Theme network wide

                  Here’s how to enable Sleek Photo network wide so that all your users can use the theme:

                  On your Network Admin dashboard click on the Themes menu.

                  Select Network Enable underneath the theme name to enable its access network wide.

                  To enable more than one theme at once:


                  Enabling themes on a per site basis

                  Any theme that has not been activated for the entire network can be activated on a site as follows:

                  Locate the site you want to enable specific themes on by searching for the specific site by clicking on Sites > All Sites

                  Once you have located the site click on Edit (hovering your mouse over the domain name brings up the action menu)

                  Click the Themes tab.

                  Only themes that haven’t been enabled network wide appear on the site theme list.

                  You can also enable more than one theme at the same time:


                  Using Supporter Plugin for Premium Themes

                  The supporter plugin allows you to select premium themes for supporter sites only.

                  The idea is you make the best and nicest themes available on supporter sites so users will want to sign up to access the themes.

                  To install:

                  Install the Pro Sites Plugin as per the installation instructions.

                  Upload supporter-themes.php to wp-content/mu-plugins.

                  How it works is:

                  A Premium Themes page is added to Settings > Supporter in the Network Admin dashboard, where you can select the themes that you want to enable for Supporter sites only.

                  • Only themes that haven’t been enabled network wide on Network Admin >Themes will be listed on this page

                  A Premium Themes sub-menu item is added to the dashboard of all sites under both Supporter and Appearance – but only users using supporter site can activate a Premium theme.

                  Whereas users on non-supporter sites can see all the Premium themes but can’t activate them – instead they see a message saying
                  ‘This feature is limited to supporters only’.
