I’m slightly suspicious of highly styled themes such as BuddyBoss’ “Boss” which claims:
“Boss theme comes fully integrated with some of the most popular BuddyPress plugins, which means you will have no styling work to do. This will help you save time and money. Although most plugins will work with Boss, we have given special attention to the below plugins and have styled them to perfection….”
Then again, it is a beautiful theme and I’m looking to get a BP site up and running as fast as I can. It’s relatively expensive though.
So what is the consensus on highly styled themes: good value, or overly restrictive?
Incidentally BuddyBoss show the theme being customised successfully with SiteOrigin’s Page Builder. Presumably Pootle’s Page Builder will work just as well, and even more so with the Pro version?
