Suffusion Buddypress Pack "for best results"

Post by caseyfern » 11 May 2014, 20:59

I saw Drake's post about Buddypress now being compatible with all themes, so Suffusion BuddyPress Pack is no longer required (as I understand it). However, at the top of my theme options page is a message: "You are using BuddyPress. Please install the Suffusion BuddyPress Pack for best results."

So which is it? Do I need the pack or not? If not, how do I get that message to go away?

Brand new BuddyPress user, btw, so forgive all silly questions.

That nag exist in theme files from times when Buddypress didn't work in Suffusion without Suffusion BuddyPress Pack. Now, Suffusion BuddyPress Pack just break your activity page, groups and who knows what else... For removing the nag directly in Suffusion is needed a new version of theme which will not be approved without other complicate changes.

But you can remove the nag by completing the code which is needed in functions.php of your child theme with:

Code: Select all

class Suffusion_BP_Pack {};
The code just define an empty class Suffusion_BP_Pack - the existence of this class is tested by the function which display that nag. If the class is defined in your child theme, Suffusion will consider that you have installed Suffusion BuddyPress Pack and will not display the nag.

I updated the article from my site with this new code: http://www.drafie-design.nl/buddypress- ... suffusion/

I'm now getting a different kind of nag:
The Suffusion BuddyPress Pack works best in a child theme. See the plugin's home page for further instructions.

Can you make that stop?

How if you make a child theme? It take few minutes and you will lose that nag, but also these changes will survive between updates: http://www.drafie-design.nl/3-5-easy-st ... suffusion/
