    I’m trying to make some tweaks to the Lush theme in a child theme, but I’m having trouble.

    Here’s what I did:

    I created a new directory ..wp-content/themes/lushchildtheme

    I created a new style.css

    This is all that I wrote in style.css

    Theme Name: Lush Child Theme
    Theme URI: http://theacnezone.com
    Description: Child Theme for Lush
    Author: Travis
    Author URI: http://theacnezone.com
    Template: LivingOS-Lush
    Version: 0.1

    @import url(“../LivingOS-Lush/style.css”);

    #dropdown-menu {
    float: left;

    that’s all, and it worked and made the nav menu float left no problem. The problem is that now I get this error message:

    You’ll need to activate a BuddyPress-compatible theme to take advantage of all of BuddyPress’s features.

    Even with this message buddypress seams to be working fine.

    So my question is, did i start my child theme correctly? and what’s with this error message?

    You have to enable the theme’s buddypress support in Appearance-Theme Options.

    Sorry, I should have explained earlier.

    I had already enabled buddypress in theme options, and all of buddypress funtionality seams to be working, but I still get this error message.

    Oh well I guess I could just ignore the message since everything is working.

    Are you sure you mean BuddyPress? You do get a message when BBPress is running (the forums) and you can safely ignore the message. The theme is compatible and the plugin was supposed to theme independent – the message is a little misleading.

    I had this message, it was down to a typo in the css file.

    Explanation here:

    The official way to remove it is via adding the tag ‘buddypress’ to your theme style.css comment header (the section where you tell wordpress your theme’s name).

    * Theme Name: My Themes
    * Tags: buddypress
