Newbee (don't laugh at stupid question)

  • I like this theme a lot. I have it for WordPress. I have never installed a new theme on my bbpress. How do you do it? I have figured out that I have to create a new directory at the bbpress root called “my-templates” and I guess I am supposed to put the unzipped file there.

    That is about as far as I can tell so far. Any advice?

  • WordPress themes can’t be used for bbPress without modification, but if it’s a bbPress theme, then yep, just put it in its own directory under my-templates

    I created the “my-templates” directory and I unzipped my theme into a folder in that directory. But when I go to my bbPress dashboard, the screenshot for my new theme shows a blank space with a red X in the upper left corner. When I click to “Activate” the theme it shows a featureless version of bbPress with no theme at all.

    What am I doing wrong?

    What folder did you unzip your theme into? You shouldn’t have to create a seperate folder in your my-templates dierctory for it.
