Engage, Social Networking BuddyPress Theme

wordpress buddypress themes

The developers of Engage have abandoned it, please don’t purchase this junky theme.

*EDIT – SOUND THE KLAXON HORNS!  – Don’t purchase this theme, it’s no longer being supported by it’s developer and simply isn’t worth it.  I’ll leave this original review up as an archive, but again, don’t purchase this theme.

Engage is a BuddyPress and bbPress theme that’s clean and simple to look at.  Sometimes, that’s exactly what you want for a website template.  Sometimes, it isn’t.  Here’s LayerUnion’s description of Engage.

Engage is a community based theme built on WordPress, bbPress and BuddyPress that lets you signup visitors on your site. Members can then build their profiles, send messages, friend other people, interact in groups, post in the forum, share interests, and much more.
You can easily customize this theme right from the theme options panel; changing the color of the links, headings, backgrounds, text, etc.
Buy Engage WordPress BuddyPress theme now and start creating communities quickly and easily.

I was only able to find a single example of Engage in the wild, a site called remaweb.org but the site was so terrible, it took about 30 seconds to load.  I only got one image before it crashed.  I’m not sure that’s not because of this theme.  Man, what are they doing here?

RemaWeb Social Network

RemaWeb appears to be a private blog network for hospital workers in Varese, Italy.

The ratings, you ask?  The ratings are a terrible 3.11 based on 27 ratings.  There’s something seriously amiss here, what is going on, man?
But you know what?  Honestly?  Absolutely none of that really matters.  They’ve effectively pulled the plug on Engage, the site is down and it looks like it’s never going to come back.  Check this out, it’s pretty sad.

Your website is offline layerunion.com. Maybe you missed that.  Can you help? I need support!

Nothing.

Is that theme support RTL?

Crickets.

Hello, are you responding any more ?

Nope.

I have purchased this theme and for some reason certain aspects in the forums are not showing – i.e some topics and replies – if i disable the theme and activate the basic theme these all then appear. Please help.

Can’t help.  Won’t help.

Are you still supporting your Engage theme as i have issues and i need to get my new website live asap.

Lol, no.

People paid good money for this theme, they worked their sites, they tried to build traffic, it’s terrible these guys just abandoned the theme and abandoned the three hundred or so folks that bought the thing.

It’s been down for over a year, yet ThemeForest is still trying to sell it, which is absurd.  Sometimes (ThemeForest really, really sucks, you know?)   It appears they haven’t been supporting this theme for at least two years.  (In my defense, I first reviewed this theme three years ago.)
It’s a shame, Engage was a nice looking theme. Sometimes though, themes just go on to the great GitHub repositiory in the sky and there’s nothing you can do about it.
Honestly though, you’re looking for a BuddyPress theme, try Boss, it’s by BuddyBoss and it’s a really strong theme.
