 Hi there,

 I've just successfully installed BuddyPress into my own responsive
 WordPress theme. The process went without a hitch up until step three of
 the BuddyPress Template Pack plugin. I overwrote all of the 16 file's
 containing divs with my responsive div classes, however after uploading,
 the files would not update in the browser. I tried across different
 browsers, cache flushes etc but nothing was working. After much head
 scratching, I went through and made the changes to all 16 files, uploaded
 them all and then clicked to the next step. Much to my relief, clicking
 the default BuddyPress links brought up pages that had my div containers
 applied to them. After I did this, suddenly all of the pages started
 displaying correctly with the updated div containers.

 I'm not sure if this was a server issue on my end or a caching issue with
 the plugin, but it was quite a fluke that I got it work without too much
 stress. I could imaging a lot of developers wanting to jump off a bridge
 at this point without any tips or guidance on the issue. Also, I would
 suggest rewriting the steps for step three of the plugin as I took me a
 lot of head scratching to figure out what was trying to be said. There has
 been a lot of other people complaining about this step on the WP forums as
 well. Aside from that, I was very impressed with my first experience
 developing for BuddyPress! Looking forward to developing this platform
