Is this support system something that is available to orion theme? Is it a plug in?
Unfortunately not. There are various forum bridges and plugins available but each one requires careful integration with the theme. BuddyPress has a good forum for WP as well as some documentation on how to implement.
getting stuck on final step of buddypress install and orion theme. i think its above my paygrade. is that something someone can do for me for a fee?
