Frisco is a free BuddyPress child theme for BuddyPress version 1.5 and beyond. Install it from your WordPress dashboard with a few clicks. Use it as-is, change the color and font in theme options, or extend it however you'd like.
The new BuddyPress 1.5 default theme aka "bp-default" is much more robust than previous versions. Frisco is a child theme to bp-default and will give your BuddyPress site a fresh look while maintaining all of the functionality of BuddyPress.
Since 2008, I've hosted a large BuddyPress installation with Media Temple. The site has hundreds of active users, dozens of blogs, lots of media, and more. I've also hosted a large e-commerce website running Magento on Media Temple along with some other regular WordPress installations. In fact, this website is being hosted on Media Temple. Needless to say, I highly recommend them for hosting sites of all sizes. My uptime has been fantastic with barely any downtime in several years. And their customer service is head and shoulders above any other hosting company. They are known for being more expensive than other hosts, but this premium is completely worth it if quality and support matters to you or your project.
I encourage you to check them out using either of the image links directly above and below this space. I will get an affiliate commission if you become a customer using one of these links. But this affiliate commission has nothing to do with my willingness and confidence in recommending them to you. Many users of the Frisco theme have asked if they can support the project. This is one way to support the project and get great hosting at the same time.
