Buddy is a lightweight, modern and fully responsive WordPress and BuddyPress theme that can be used for any type of website, whether it be business, corporate, community, magazine, portfolio, etc. If you want to use the theme without BuddyPress or bbPress it works great too.
Buddy comes with an excellent array of shortcodes including a BuddyPress activity form, images, posts, lists, toggle boxes, sliders and so much more. They can also be inserted in pages using the shortcode generator.
Buddy ensures your website looks sharp on high resolution devices by swapping normal resolution for high resolution images and utilises HTML5, CSS3, and icon fonts that don’t distort with larger resolutions displays.
Search Engine Optimization
Buddy is built with the latest SEO practices in mind. Semantic HTML5 for better search result placement, schema markup of all content, correct use of H tags, main content loaded before secondary content – we have it all covered.
Buddy comes with translation files so you can easily translate your site into any language you want.
Why are icon fonts so important? Simple. They are so easy to use, look great at any size and make your content look that much better. Buddy includes the Font Awesome library to give you nearly 400 icons to use throughout your navigation, paragraphs, buttons, lists, and just about anything else you can think about.
We offer top notch which means you will receive detailed answers to any questions you may have quickly. Trouble using the theme? Find a bug? We’ll solve it for you.
Individual & Global Options
The theme gives you the ability to change the options on each individual post or page or you can do it globally to change them all at once.
Create Unlimited Sidebars
Create unlimited sidebars that you can display on any page you want.
Comes with a child theme so if you ever want to make any code changes they will not be overwritten when you update the theme.
A truly epic theme!
I spent the last 6 months building my website focused around news style/magazine but after seeing this… instantly fell in love with it. I’m going to do some pretty crazy hacks to this!
Kudos to you!
Awesome theme + great support! Five starts from me!
I bought it, it’s an awesome theme, so flexible.
Wonderful theme. I purchased a grand total of 4 premium themes, prior to finding this. None of them were perfect.
This is exactly what I wanted. A professional, responsive BuddyPress theme, it’s superb. – tehkseven
Well, I recommend it for every single WordPress-fanatic who wants to work with Buddypress. Installation was easy, setting up the components (sorry, ex Joomla user) was done within minutes and every plugin I tried worked out of the box and that is something that was a pain in the #*@ at other themes. Really great job on this theme, pretty easy to customise by the way. – lastpost
Thanks for the quick service support. I highly recommend this theme. – consultsite
Just want to say I’ve been working with this theme since it’s release and I rate both it and Dan’s support very highly! – FlipFl0p
Easy to customize, makes the job, good documentation, cleverly coded, important options are there, powerful features and good BuddyPress and bbPress integration, a big + for Woocommerce. – ganjou
I was hosting my forum on a custom vbulletin theme and was constantly upgrading and paying $100’s every year just on maintenance – I changed to WordPress/BBPress and chose this Buddy theme – Due to the excellent design, flexibility and support of the theme even with very limited technical knowledge I now have an amazing feature rich site which I maintain myself. – Jon – systemsfortraders.com
I just wanted to say that we tried various themes before deciding on using Buddy, but we’re glad we made the decision as it just looks like a social network. It’s easy to use and other plugins work extremely well with it, including WooCommerce. A proper looking site Thanks you. – Business-Web
This site is perfect for my needs, and looks very good as well. I had a developer make some major customisations without any problem. – troybanarzi
