Coming BuddyPress 1.7 Is Compatible With ALL WordPress Themes

In the coming release of BuddyPress-1.7, BP developer community is making it compatible with all WordPress themes.

Agreed scope of BuddyPress 1.7 in dev chat:

  • Making BuddyPress work on every WP theme – #3741
  • Admin UI for Groups management – #4414
  • Finish the Group Forum integration with bbPress 2 – #3598
  • Improve DB performance when querying users – #4060
After BP  update 1.7  you can leave headache of  BP Template Pack which is used for making any WP theme BP compatible, BP Template Pack works fine but its not that easy for common WP users cause it require changing markup and CSS  of your WP theme. Hence, removing the requirement for having a BuddyPress-enabled theme is a good idea.
