    DON'T USE THAT THEME, it is a serious mess and a lot of the commonly used plugins for buddy press don't work with it. I spent months trying to make that theme work and I finally walked away from it this weekend. It looks great but is a nightmare trying to get it to work.

    Take my advice and just walk away from buddypress as a whole. I spent all weekend trying to find a theme that worked with all major plugins, I finally found a garbage theme which worked with a little of redevelopment. Buddypress is not worth the effort, use a different platform and you will be saved from a serious mess.

    Also I have numerous anti spam plugins running and I am still hit with heavy spam everyday.

    That's the problem, I haven't found a decent one yet.

    I was just looking at Wildcommunity. What do you think about One Community? (also on themeforest)
