Make BuddyPress Look Like Facebook

With the release of BuddyPress 1.0, has released an updated version of their FaceBuddy theme which strangely enough, looks just like Facebook. This theme is very CSS dependent meaning little to no images. One nice thing about this particular theme is that BuddyDress provides the PSD file to customize the background image with your own logo or text.


If you really want to have your own Facebook look alike, head on over and grab the theme. It’s free.

As has been pointed out by a commenter, this theme appears to no longer be available. Even when browsing the BuddyPress website and performing a search for the Facebook theme, the results point to the same link, BuddyPress Social which is part of their Premium theme selection.

  1. I got this theme for another site…do you know of any other themes or others coming out with others for buddypress?


  2. Just a note that this theme needs to be debugged as it will break your BuddyPress install. Specifically, the menu references in header.php file are incorrectly coded for one thing. I had a brand new install that tanked because of this theme, and would advise folks to hold off until the developer tests it again.


  3. I have a blank page with this theme. Can anybody tell me how to get the theme showing and get rid of the blank page?


  4. @Phillip – Thanks for the update. I’ve added that information to the bottom of the post. Even the search results on their site for the Facebook theme point to their BuddyPress social theme.
