BuddyBoss has two distinct components:

  •  the BuddyBoss platform
  •  the BuddyBoss theme

The BuddyBoss platform is a re-engineering of the popular BuddyPress plugin, which is commonly used to add social networking functions to WordPress.

The BuddyBoss platform provides a WordPress site with streamlined configuration and enhanced functions when compared to BuddyPress.

The BuddyBoss theme is a BuddyBoss platform-aware theme that provides an enhanced out of the box user experience for BuddyBoss sites.

This includes enhanced theming and menuing for LearnDash courses.
