BuddyPress Kills WordPress Themes

Reported by: gwsa's profile gwsa Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: major
Severity: Version:
Component: Keywords: themes


Upgraded to BuddyPress 1.0.1 with WordpressMU 2.7.1. BuddyPress rewrites the theme_root to /bp-themes/ on /wpmu-themes.php and on /themes.php, denying both users and administrators the ability to activate standard WordPress themes that live in /wp-content/themes.

Simply put, if BuddyPress is activated, all blogs on the server crash because they can't find their themes. Everything was working fine prior to upgrade. Only active plugin is BuddyPress.

If the plugin is active, if I go to /wpmu-themes.php or /wpmu-blogs.php? in the WPMU backend, to activate themes all I see are the BP themes. Correct me if I'm wrong, but before it would also show me themes in the /themes/ directory as well. Is this an intended function? I'd prefer not to move my non BP themes into the bp-themes/ as disabling BP would then kill the site.

The theme root is only re-written on BuddyPress pages, no where else. I can't say I've ever seen this problem, so it sounds like something is wrong with the way you have set up BuddyPress.

If someone else can confirm they are seeing this problem, I will take a further look.
