51nzKO7hJZL._SX258_PJlook-inside-v2,TopRight,1,0_SH20_BO1,204,203,200_BuddyPress Theme Development is a book written by Tammie Lister. This book illustrates that you shouldn’t be afraid to jump into creating BuddyPress themes, because it’s not as scary as some might think! You will learn everything from BuddPress basics to some advanced BuddyPress functionality and of course you will will learn how to create your own BuddyPress theme from scratch. WebDevStudios co-founder Brian Messenlehner, was a technical reviewer for the “BuddyPress Theme Development” book published by Packt Publishing.

Here is what Tammie said about her book:

When I started writing BuddyPress Theme Development, I had 4 goals (along with providing a good resource for creating themes):

  1. Blow away the myth that creating BuddyPress themes is hard.

  2. Encourage readers to tailor their experience, choosing which components are critical to their success.

  3. Raise the quality of BuddyPress themes and highlight good theme practices.

  4. Encourage people to get involved with the BuddyPress project.
