after installing BP Fun, widgets and Activity Plus plugin disappeared.

Now that my Buddypress Fun theme is activated, I saw all my widgets disappeared as well as my activity plus plugin which wraps around the status update window (I downloaded that plugin from here.)

So I added some widgets back bu they still don’t seem to show up. I cleared the cache for my browser AND for wordpress, and still nothing. Just a message telling me I need to activate widgets. So I’m concerned about that with this theme, but also more importantly, what happened to my buddypress activity plus plugin?

When I switch back to my old theme it comes right back.

I’m not sure I’m being clear. When I activate most any themes, my sidebars are retained. I just go to the appearance tab, move the widgets around as I wish, and they show up just fine when I look at my theme. In this case, all my widgets are gone, even though under Appearance I see them all listed (and I made sure cache was cleared both in my browser and in my wordpress sidebar widget plugins and sitewide cache plugins.)

My plugin called Activity Plus is also gone from the theme, and in most cases when I download a new buddypress theme, the activity plus is automatically a part of it, seeing as how I have the plugin installed.

I’m wondering if BP Fun is supposed to be more manually labor intensive than I’m aware? The sidebar tells me I need to go back and add widgets, but I swear to you that I have! Honest! :slight_smile:

P.S. I just want to say this is a really cool process, trying to figure this all out, and your plugins are some of the most sought after features in the world. I wanted to make my own little private facebook killer with my own community, and you all are helping me do it, and helping me learn how to do a lot of things myself. I can’t express how much I appreciate this community and all the forum information herein, it’s been invaluable to me.
