Custom Community Pro Version 0.6 now available

After a complete rebuild of the theme architecture for BuddyPress 1.5.x we are very happy that we are able to release a new 0.6 version of the Custom Community Pro Theme.

Everything works with hooks from now on!

The theme now makes uses of do_actions to add all needed code into the template files. This makes sure, your template files are clean, easy to read, and always just the needed code is generated for your individual needs.


The complete jQuery is rewritten and updated to the last version chipped with WordPress.


We fixed all bugs reported by the community. Thanks a lot for all the help! Without the help of the community which never stops reporting issues and feature requests we wouldn’t be here now.

Fixed bugs

We hope you have a lot of fun and inspiration with the new version!

If you find any bug or you miss something, please give us feedback in our forums or write us a ticket in the issue tracker.

New feature requests


If you have any idea how we can make Custom Community better, just write it on Github or here in the comments and we will discuss together.

Important note

If you already created a child theme with an older theme and BuddyPress version you will have to rework all your template files, so do not update on a live site.

Look into the future

At last I’d like to give you a quick look into the future development. For now we are planning some exiting stuff.

Full bbPress support

also with theme settings for easy customization.

Themekraft Framework

We will add the new Themekraft framework to give you the possibility to build your own backend admin option pages and create individual theme settings pages for your own themes or plugins.

Child theme generator

to create new child themes from the theme settings page to make customization and updates more easy. We already have build a stylesheet generator so you can ship your child themes without theme settings and with a static CSS file, but decided to test it more before it will come in.


And soon you’ll be able to submit your created themes via backend and share them with the community – or sell them! More news following soon ;)

Jigoshop – BuddyPress Integration

We are about to release the Jigoshop integration for BuddyPress, which is already finished and in last testings…

Jigoshop and Custom Community

We will build special Jigoshop templates for the Custom Community Pro theme. So you can easily customize your shop. With the new Jigoshop for BuddyPress plugin and our theme we will have the powerfull shop solution we are all looking for. :)

In the end I only want to say thank you!
Thank you all! It makes so much fun to develop Custom Community with you all together.

  1. Hi – would like to pay with PayPal, but I keep arriving at a German PayPal window (the drop-down menu doesn’t offer Canada as an option??). Is this not available to customers in Canada?
    Would like to get started today – could someone get back to me soon?


    • hi joanne, currently the paypal window is just in german but works in every country.
      we hope to have this language-thing corrected with our reworked site soon.
      for now you will have to click on the german “bezahlen” (=pay)
      hope this helps,
      konrad :)

      • Hi Konrad;

        Thank you for getting back to me – I speak some German, so its not a big deal, but I did kind-of wonder. :)
        Got a couple more quick questions. The hosting provider has installed WordPress on their server so I can start building my site. I love the Custom Community Pro theme. Will it work there even though WordPress is now on a version 3.3? Can my hosting provider install the Pro version there, or will I need to do it? I’m not as savvy as I’d like to be, so if I can just start building the site my customers can start finding me.

        Thanks so much! :)

  2. I just purchased the upgrade, but I don’t know how to install it. Where are the steps on how to install the upgraded Pro version on WordPress? Also, will everything that I have now on the free version get lost? Finally, why does it say 3 weeks access? After 3 weeks, I will not be able to edit the website?

  3. Hi! Congrats on the new version. I have used your prior version and loved it every since. I see with 0.6 it runs BuddyPress 1.5 but I am not locating what version of WP it is compatible with?


  4. I paid for the pro version but the link to the download is missing/broken. Please can you tell me how to get the download as I need it ASAP.


  5. I bout the pro version a few months back then BP 1.5 was released – do I have to pay full price for the improved version as I have not seen any updated info in my dashboard – was previously stated that and update alert would apear?
