BuddyPress Default Theme looking to pass Theme Review
One of the big changes in recent times with regards to themes has been the WordPress Theme Test. Whilst this is a great move and the Theme Review group is doing a kicking job keeping this mammoth task on track, there have been 2 major issues with regards to BuddyPress. These were the fact that it uses child themes and the fact that the Default Theme itself didn’t pass the test. Times are a changing as you can see over at the BP Default Group.
There are still a few things to get done but looks like BuddyPress 1.3 will bring a stop to these problems at least in regards to the Default Theme passing.
