Hi. I have found that this theme is breaking various drop down boxes used bu various plugins. I need this problem fixing as it’s a big issue.


It may related to Selectric plugin which is included in the theme. Upload the following plugin to your website, activate it and try again;

Can users (topic starter and replies) submit images in forum?

Hi, yes they can.

Thanks for the reply. Also, I see users can upload images, image links and video links in groups. Is there a way for users to reply to a comment in groups with the option to upload images, image link or video link?

In the blog area, I see users can add a featured image. Can users also add other images as well when submitting a blog post? I do not see any other media options on blog page other than featured image. Thanks.


1) Unfortunately, no.

2) Yes, you can enable “Add Media” button for the front-end form from theme settings. It is disabled on the demo.

Hi – thank for for this theme! I have a question about the icon menu – how can I add a top menu link to the Forum home/index? Screencap here: https://i.imgur.com/2dA4Kgu.jpg


p.s. My company did purchase the theme – I can provide the item purchase code if needed for support questions.


1) Unfortunately, there isn’t any setting for that. If you are familiar with php, you can edit “besocial/templates/iconmenu/forums-menu.php” file manually.

2) If you have any other question, please contact us via contact form on the item support page and add your purchase code to your message;


Hi, the new bbpress statistics are not there when I go to add the to a page, just buddypress as before.

No, you will not lose any data. You can use the child theme as before.

Hi, Sadly I am not getting the live notifications working. I have enabled them in the backend and disabled some plugins that may cause an issue. Is there a plugin I need for this to work?


If you have any question, please contact us only via email. I replied to your e-mail.

Hi Wow… As You may know i bought the theme 2 years ago for a project which never starts. but after these years i came back to see the updates and honestly, i surprised about new features. I have 2 question. What is the new feature live notification and what is the different between groups and forums? thanks


1) Your site members receive realtime notifications (without refreshing the page) in the icon menu for private messages, friend requests, group invitations etc.;


2) BuddyPress and bbPress are two seperate plugins.

BuddyPress groups: https://codex.buddypress.org/administrator-guide/groups/

How can I set up a member search box as in your demo?

I was just about to go with another bp theme, and really by coincidence got here – and fell in love with this theme right away!!

It support rtl and everything is already setup and visually wonderful and clean [very important].

I need to know one important thing [from experience with themes]:

how much from the demo can I setup with the importer? I really like the demo – does the import duplicates exactly what I see in the demo or I need to setup stuff like external plugins and placing of widgets?

I just want to know what does the demo import includes, and how much of a setup there will be to get to the functionality and visuals of the demo?

Thanks and keep up the good work – this is buddypress as it should be! Lior.

2 questions please: 1. In the demo, when you create a blog you can’t preview it before sending to approval? 2. In group listing – I saw just ‘membership’ and ‘invitations’ tab. Isn’t there also a possibility to see public groups that you are not a member in them?

Thanks Lior


1) Yes, users can’t preview the post before sending to approval.

2) All public groups are displayed at Groups page;


thank you!

1. I guess this is buddypress work? Isn’t it weird that someone sends a post for review, and can’t see how it will look like? If there was an error or something missing? he needs to wait for admin approval, and only then see that he needs to fix something, and send again to approval :)

[even after sending to admin, you can’t see your draft that was sent]

How can be ordered the groups in the “group carousel”?



1) You can only change “type” value to change the order of the items in the carousel. Screenshot; https://pasteboard.co/HlCKmNP.png
