bbpress plugin — custom template mods
I am building my own custom bbpress theme. I started by moving all of the theme files into my current theme and also adding in the needed functions from the functions.php file into my current theme.
I have copied the /theme/bbpress/ folder into my current theme folder.
It seems that any modifications I make to files within MYTHEME/bbpress/ are not being picked up by bbpress. If I go into the actual plugin folder and modify the files in the theme/bbpress/ folder there, then the changes occur.
Please change the loading structure so that bbpress first checks the active theme for all needed bbpress theme files including those in the bbpress folder. If none are found then default back to the plugin theme directory.
It would almost be like treating the currently active theme as a child theme of bbpress. This would make modifications much easier to maintain, while still being able to safely update bbpress.
