Customizing bbPress and Buddy Press styles to match custom Alyeska theme

    Hello BBP Forum,

    I got nearly everything set up with the BuddyPress and bbPress forum plugins, however there’s a few tweaks I need to finish it off and I’m trying to figure out which files I need to adjust the html settings to match my custom theme of my other pages.

    Going from these directions: http://codex.bbpress.org/legacy/step-by-step-guide-to-creating-a-custom-bbpress-theme/ I created a child from my Alyeska theme and copied the Default bbPress Theme to the child theme folder. This helped get the forum page a little closer to my custom theme style, but still not there yet; the sidebars are missing, the forum BG is white, amongst a few other issues, but it’s getting closer. I’m just not sure where the CSS master file for this page is, I tried editing the two files in the child_theme/bbp/CSS folder but it didn’t make any change: http://ouyagamingsource.com/forums/, any ideas?

    Thanks ahead of time!

    –Bryan

    Update- I deleted and reinstalled the child theme and copied back over the bbp-twentyten files into the child folder as according to these directions: http://codex.bbpress.org/legacy/step-by-step-guide-to-creating-a-custom-bbpress-theme/ however I’m still having issues with the theme working with bbP… for some reason my password field turned white on all my pages from an original dark theme setting (though the login field stayed the same), and I can’t figure out how to format the colors and background to my forum page to stay with the original theme settings: http://ouyagamingsource.com/forums/ including maintaining the tables, sidebars and colors of the other pages. I’m wondering if it can be done by bypassing some of the twenty-ten commands on the bbpress-functions.php file I copied to the child? I’m not much of a PHP expert so this is a little complicated.

    Update- I just added: add_theme_support( ‘bbpress’ ); to my functions.php page in the child theme and it didn’t make any difference, I’m still looking for a fix… any advice would be appreciated.

    Because it is specific to your theme, probably the best thing you can do is contact Jason (your theme’s developer) and see if he can provide specific directions. He has worked with bbPress quite a bit recently so I expect he’ll be able to at least help with that part: http://support.themeblvd.com/
