Theme Compatibility Confusion
thanks for making such an easy forum solution, I’ve been quite pleased with how much functionality comes right out of the box.
Though I am getting confused when it comes to best practices for making some typical theme customizations so that I can keep a custom look with future updates of bbpress.
At this time, I am really only trying to change font styles and sizes and some of the coloring and minor layout items with how the forum renders to match my custom wordpress theme (built off of HTML5 boilerplate).
but, I don’t feel like it helped and am not sure if things have already changed since those have been written. either that or i am just lost in the number of files that seem to control the theme in bbpress with the added bbp-theme-compat files.
For instance, i am told to copy over everything from bbpress/bbp-theme-compat/bbpress directory, yet none of those files include the bbp-theme-compat/css files. which is what I will probably doing the most modification of (right?)
Then it says to copy over the bbpress/extras directory (optionally), but all I can find is the bbpress/bbp-theme-compat/extras directory, is this what was meant?
Again, really just want to make minor style changes that universally affect the bbpress fonts and colors, yet still want to specifically target those bbpress items.
Might increase the complexity of the customization, but right now just want to start small and use bbpress best practices so that I don’t lose my customization when upgrading anything.
