Hi, I installed and got Buddypress to work on my local server with Wordpress. When I copy the Platform Forum Theme file over to the my-template file it still won't show in appearances however.. I followed the instructions on the pdf and also tried messing with mo files for localizing buddypress.. What do I do from here? Am I missing something? Thanks

What exactly is the URL to your forum? Are you seeing any error messages? Thanks, Bryan

No error messages. It is locahost:8888/forum It brings up the form that way, I sign in, under themes it won't show the theme you guys have created that I transfered to my-templates however.. everything else is working, although I feel unfamiliar with the plugins they have not had any errors either.

I've seen problems with local setups before, it could be coincidental for sure. But, because it is local there's really no way for us to check it hands on.

Can you paste how you're inserting wp-load.php into bb-config.php?

Thanks, Bryan

you should be using wp-load.php not wp-blog-header.php
