How do I edit the bbPress css
I’m wanting to edit the css of bbPress to tweak the appearance of my forums, specifically the font size. I’m running WordPress 3.5.1, bbPress 2.2.4, and using a twentytwelve-child theme. My forums are at
I found the “bbPress Custom CSS File” plug-in but according to the description I do not need it.
** This plugin is for bbPress 2.1.x. If you are using bbPress 2.0.x please upgrade. If you are using bbPress 2.2, read below.**
bbPress 2.2+: As of bbPress 2.2 this plugin is NOT needed. bbPress will auto-detect the CSS file if it exists in the right location.
Copy the CSS file from wp-content/plugins/bbpress/bbp-themes/bbp-default/css/bbpress.css to wp-content/themes/[yourtheme]/bbpress.css.
Following the instructions above I have copied the bbpress.css file from the bbpress plugin’s css folder to “wp-content/themes/twentytwelve-child/bbpress.css”. When I go into the WordPress dashboard under appearance-edit the bbpress.css is available for editing.
So assuming I have the bbpress.css file in the right place (if I don’t please instruct me where I need to put it for editing), which line of code in the bbpress.css file do I need to edit to change the font size on my forums.
Any assistance in this matter will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
