The best theme there is if you need a theme that works well with BuddyPress. Especially if you need widgets exclusively for the BP-pages. Highly recommended.

I’ve used this theme for a Faq site. Perfect. An now on a new Forum website underco. with bbPress. No problem, no troubles. We’ve done some work in php for our needs, and the child-theme works.
OK with any new version of WordPress, and so with the theme.
So, 5 star 🙂
