Bounce is a powerful, professional and fully responsive WordPress & BuddyPress theme. If you want to impress your visitors with a good looking theme then look no further.
FULL BUDDYPRESS/BBPRESS THEME (not required though!)Nowadays any theme will work with BuddyPress/bbPress, but Bounce is actually built as a BuddyPress/bbPress theme meaning it styles all the BuddyPress/bbPress pages to match the theme. However if you don’t want to use BuddyPress and/or bbPress, no problem, the theme doesn’t require it and works just fine without it!
UNLIMITED LAYOUTSThis theme uses shortcodes to create the homepage. The shortcodes come with a ton of options and can be moved around the page meaning there is unlimited possibly for homepage layouts. The default homepage set up comes preinstalled with theme, but here’s a few other set ups to show you what is possible with this theme: Homepage Example 1, Homepage Example 2, Homepage Example 3.
7 UNIQUE SKINSThe theme comes with seven unique skins, dark blue, brown, darkgrey, maroon, orange, purple, teal, giving you plenty of options to make your theme look how you want it to.
AUTO INSTALLATION & DEMO CONTENTOnce the theme is activated it automatically installs the necessary pages so you can get the theme set up in under a minute. Additionally you can install the demo content to get the theme looking exactly like the live preview site.
RESPONSIVEThe theme is completely responsive meaning the theme adapts to any screen size from a large computer all the way down to a mobile device. Try it for yourself, resize your browser window and see how the theme changes to fit the window.
SEO (Search Engine Optimization)SEO is top priority with this theme and is vital for a top Google ranking. Important content is placed before the sidebar regardless of the sidebar position so it is crawled first by search engines. Headings are wrapped in heading tags (h1, h2, h3 etc) to tell the search engine they are important. The theme also uses heavy internal linking through related posts, primary navigation menus, sidebar and footer navigation.

WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY
YOU ARE THE MAN! The tech support you give makes the theme worth every cent!
Ohhhh my! This is huge and so easy to use!!!! Veeeery nice job guys!!!! I am totally exited…pffiuuuu and also totally angry because I won’t sleep for next 5 nights! ^^
I’m going to be really tearing into this over the next couple days, so I’m sure I will be posting a lot here. I just want to say before posting any bugs I find that this is the best BP theme I’ve tested (and I have tested them all). Like any new theme it has a couple bugs (there is only so much one team can test for), but it seems to have a solid foundation. There is a couple other popular BP themes on TF and while they make look nice in a demo the code is complete junk.
I have to say that support is great. About mid-afternoon, I had a collection of questions (there were 5 of them) and I placed them onto the support site. All, bar one, have now been answered and I am very happy with that service. I said bar 1 because that one is a little more involved and GhostPool are going into my admin for me to take a look and, to be honest, it is probably not a theme error but a conflict error. I’m saying this here because I use the comments section to see comments about support, so thought I would let those thing of purchasing know Another thing, and this isn’t official, I’m using WooCommerce on my Bounce site and, following a single line change provided by GhostPool, everything works with no edits required on the WooCommerce files.
We have tested every Buddypress theme on TF and this is the only one we can recommend buying. It is a very strong base for developers and has just the right amount of admin features for non-developers.
I love your theme and wanted to thank you for your great support as well. You’ve answered a lot of my questions in the forum really well.
I thought I’d add that this is a great theme. I have been developing a really cool community website similar to a meetup.com type of event page with it. Even with 3 or 4 large plugin integrations it is still working like a champ. Constant updates and easy to read documentations. Good job GhostPool!
Still the best BP theme around…we built http://smeak.com on this theme, and yes we have done extensive modifications to the original css, but without the foundation of this brilliant theme, none of this would have been possible. thank you. – gregmc
