I wanted to create a custom bbPress theme

    Wordpress version: 3.6
    bbPress 2.3.2
    Site url: http://www.rubycore-ng.com/blog/forum/

    I wanted to create a custom bbPress theme, i followed the instructions here:’ Step-by-Step Guide to Creating a Custom bbPress Theme’. Having copied the following assets from the bbpress>template>default folder to my child theme:

    1-bbpress folder
    2-extras folder
    3-js folder
    4-bbpress-functions.php

    I am still unable to override the styles in the default bbpress.css file.

    I would appreciate clues on how to approach this.

    Regards.

    I ‘think’ from a quick look you should have the bbpress.css file you want to modify in the following location:

    http://www.rubycore-ng.com/blog/wp-content/themes/rubycore-Blogger/css/bbpress.css

    Give that a go and let me know if that does/doesn’t work ;)

    Thanks, My theme can now read my bbpress.css file based on the directory structure you advised.
    One observation and question though:
    I noticed that when i created a blank bbpress.css file in my child theme, it wiped off the default styles created by the parent!! So, do I copy the complete parent bbpress.css file or do I make a child bbpress.css file.

    If i am to make a child bbpress.css file, then how do i reference the parent css file, as it is done in wordpress child theme design?

    Regards

    I answered to the post of @tansu (called “Theme issues”).
    I just began using BBpress so I’m not a BBPress savvy but I had this part working.
    I hope it will help you both.
