You need to pay for better design and functionalities..

I find it very good plugin with basic features, but in reality, you need better design and more features / options.
If you want to save time to make your site look decent or not so good at coding yourself, I recommend you to go with paid themes.
good theme recommedations

A month ago I created my first Wordpress site with one third-party plugin and the forum plug-in bbPress.
Getting a theme to work well with both plugins took quite a bit of time as I had to write a small bit of custom css and PHP. My knowledge of css and PHP is low. Actually it took a few weeks to get everything to look nice and work well together, although the work was done on a very part-time basis.
I now want to install BuddyPress and bbPress together on another Wordpress site as community software for a certain niche.
Is there a reasonably low-priced (or free) theme I can purchase for BuddyPress (and that works with bbPress installed on the same site) that looks nice?
Please give me some recommendations. I don't want to spend three weeks making css tweaks to get a decent look community website.
As regards reviewing BuddyPress (together with bbPress), I installed both a week ago. It is good BuddyPress allows you precisely to turn what functionality what want on and turn everything else off. For my case I just wanted the ability to allow BuddyPress groups to have their own associated bbPress forum. It worked, although the default themes are rather plain - hence my desire for a good theme recommendation. BuddyPress and bbPress work well together. My only issue is one common to all Wordpress users. The more plugins you add to a Wordpress site, the greater the chances of some little issues occurring, although this is not the fault of BuddyPress or bbPress.
When I was looking for what forum plug-in to use, I installed three different ones. bbPress was the most plain looking one by default. However bbPress was the only one that played nicely with all the other plug-ins. So I stuck with bbPress. After a little work, I managed to get bbPress looking good.
This plugin needs to be clompletely remade from scratch
