BuddyPress is a WordPress plugin that you can use to build your own self-hosted social network using WordPress. Thus, BuddyPress requires its own themes that help bring out all of the features that you’d find on a social network, such as activity streams, create own profile, connect to other users, post messages, user groups, forums (usually via bbPress) and more. The idea of creating a community based website without much knowledge is highly attractive. To simply put it, Buddypress is a social networking, in a box.

If your WordPress website is doing well and people tend to get into healthy interactions in the comments then integrating your website with BuddyPress will be a nice choice so that users get a new platform to express their views and connect. This should be a given, however many website owners blindly ignore the pumping blood of any website a.k.a the users.

In order to take advantage of all the features Buddypress has to offer, your WordPress theme should support Buddypress. This means you will probably need a brand new theme that can support it. You don’t have to implement the social networking features right away, so wait until your user base grows. After all, you never know when you might need it.

Today we have managed to find top quality Buddypress WordPress themes for your next website. This will let you have a glimpse of what is trending these days and that it will help you make a better choice. These themes do support BuddyPress but it’s not necessary that you can use them only if you are looking forward to install BuddyPress and can also be used otherwise. We hope you will find this collection useful, enjoy!

    That’s an actual website. Maybe they bought a theme or had it custom made.

  3. Hey, has anyone tried DynamiX theme? I want to buy it, but i’m afraid that I will ruin the whole ‘responsive’ thing with my own customizations:( Anyone tried that before?

  4. These are some of the best BuddyPress themes!
