You should make this theme responsive quickly. Because, without mobile responsiveness, many potential buyers will ignore this theme.

I am getting this problem on install and nothing of the suggested fixes are working…please help:

Installing Theme from uploaded file: themeforest-4288994-engage-wordpress-buddypress-bbpress-theme.zip Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.

Warning: Missing argument 3 for wpseo_upgrader_process_complete() in /home/marknewcomer/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-seo/inc/wpseo-non-ajax-functions.php on line 259

Having similar problems when just trying to upload the style sheet file.

The search doesn’t seem to work at all with buddypress. What is the solution to this?

Im not able to install. No style sheet file. Please help!

Thank you! Now Im getting an error.

Fatal error: Call to undefined function bp_has_groups() in /home2/xxxx/public_html/xxxxx/wp-content/themes/engage/front-page.php on line 46

Be sure to have groups enabled from the buddy press settings in the WP Dashboard. Then create a test group to make sure it works properly.

Thanks! It worked.

Is the theme now responsive?

I am waiting on TF to approve the responsive version of the file. Still in queue for the approval. An email will be sent when it is approved. Hopefully soon!

When visiting http://layerunion.com/activity/ the links in the drop downs are not visable. (small css change needed)

using chrome

Major update has just been approved. Be sure to check the changelog.txt file for all details.

This update includes:

Responsive Version!
FontAwesome Integration
Significant decrease in HTTP requests which should speed up the site as well.

Thank you all for purchasing Engage.

Can you tell me when this update is ready ! day or five days

The update is live now! Re-download the theme files.


I am looking to buy this theme but need to confirm if it has a custom dashboard for members joining the application ?

I am planning to use it as an intranet portal. But dont want the same dashboard for admin and users, Does the theme has a different dashboard for users ?

The dashboard between users/admins is the standard WP variation of dashboards, nothing custom.

Is the template compatible with simple intranet plugin ?

I have not tested but I do not see why it would not be.


I don’t see any change, and the last update in the changelog.txt file is “old” : v1.1.4 (1.16.2014). Is this really the responsive version ??


Well I just looked at the new downloadable files and you are right, TF didn’t include the right version of the theme in the package. I have submitted a new upload request to try and fix this issue. Terribly sorry.

Hello and thank you now www site is responsive could you tell me how i put my translated language files in theme. I put languages files in language folder put nothing happends . i m from finland and it for a reason why i have to do that.

Best regards Mikko


the accont signup button says “Account registration is currently closed to new sign-ups.”

how to i enable users to register?


Enable registration through WP settings, try this link User Registration.

Hi, I bought the theme thinking I can make the homepage what I want. Is there any way to make my own custom homepage? I don’t want to use the members, heading, groups, etc.. that is currently there.

Thanks! - Jeff

There is no built in customization of the homepage, you could achieve the functionality you desire via html or paid customization. Thanks.

Is this issue due to the theme template? http://arsamorata.com/members/amorati/infozumedia-ro/

Seams broken

1: Do you provide the demo.xml and setup instructions with this theme? 2: Is it now responsive? 3: Have the Buddypress issues been resolved?

Keen to buy it but not before these are answered.

1. demo is not included but setup instructions are included, 2. Yes, 3. Yes

Thanks I bought it and am starting to setup.

One quick question is how to move or remove the logged in buddypress user menu at the right top of each page?

Can you provide me a email address for support please. It is taking way to long for you to respond PS: Buyers beware)

Hi, I’ve been trying to use your theme, but was forced to reinstall to get the network feature working in BP. However, the homepage that I originally had seems to be gone. What should I be selecting to get the homepage back.

Also, I don’t find this site to be very intuitive or I imagine I would have found the documentation and not had to ask this silly question.

Thanks you.

Anybody out there know why my homepage isn’t working (it’s not loading)? I’m selecting the wrong thing somewhere but can’t track it down. Please. Anyone?


I just installed the latest buddy press and it seems the theme is broken now

When will you update this theme to work with the new buddypress version?

You need to make sure you have Groups enabled via Settings, then create a group to see if it solves the error.

awesome thanks!

its working now


Good morning my name is Ricardo Triana, I´m a front end developer and web/mobile designer. Im looking to purchase a template for my startup company. What Im looking for is:

-User registration/sign up -User can edit their profile (avatar image and data) and publish. Profile can be viewed by all registered and not registered users. -User geolocation. Can user have a geolocation option when creating profeile. -Advanced search app -Responsive and extremely mobile friendly -Chat aplication or some kind of comment aplication so users can interact in a private/public manner. -User can create a post/page with custom fields, and will only be published after admin authorization. This post/page can be tagged so that it can be easily found by a user when using this tags as search filters. -User can create and share a post/page with custom fields that will only be viewed by certain users. User should be able to associate this post/page with a certain user that is registered in the site.

I know these might look like a bit too much, but it is my best option, i need some kind of minimum viable product to be online in a few weeks, that is why Im taking the template option as my last resource. And I know that some of these functionalities can be achieved with plugins and son on. But Id really like to know if plugins can be installed without any trouble and that your template will be able to install these plugins with no conflict.

Thank you so much for your time, and I hope you guys can help me out.



Is there any way I can use your themes modal account signup and account login functions and call these from a menu item?
