Our First Builder Child Theme for BuddyPress: Yukon

We’re happy to say that we just released our first Builder child theme for BuddyPressYukon.

Check out the demo which features Yukon’s styling for your Builder/BuddyPress site:

Yukon styles BuddyPress features for member profiles, network activity/updates, groups, and forums:

To set up your Builder + BuddyPress site, follow these recommended activation steps:

1. Install WordPress
2. Upload the BuddyPress plugin (from WP repository)
3. Activate and follow the BuddyPress installation five-step walkthrough (during step #4 choose to use the included BuddyPress theme, and then finish the installation)
4. Upload Builder Theme (Core)
5. Upload the Builder child Yukon theme and activate. With Builder and BuddyPress now setup, begin customization.

Note: Builder BuddyPress plugin is no longer required. Any Builder child now works properly with the BuddyPress Template Pack plugin.

Get Builder child Yukon and start building your awesome social networking site today. Builder child Yukon is available stand-alone, in the Builder Developer Pack, or the All-Access Theme Pass.


  1. I don’t know much at all about Buddy Press, but I am very glad to hear that Yukon is available for Builder! I’ve always liked the simplicity of the Yukon theme, but decided about a year ago to switch all of my sites to Builder and hated to let Yukon go. Now I can activate it as a Builder child theme – can’t wait!

    And I guess I have to do more research to find out what BP is all about …

    • Hey Lee! Glad you like it and thanks for the comment. Yes, definitely check out BuddyPress – the possibilites for WordPress social networking sites are pretty cool.

  2. You mentioned a “special BuddyPress walkthrough video on the blog tomorrow”. Is there a recording of this? I need to use BuddyPress with iThemes Builder and any help would be greatly appreciated.
