Disregard, found in ..wp-content/plugins/bbpress/includes/common/widgets.php
@netweb, I get that and that’s where the CSS files are, but when I try to change any php files that are located in the subfolder which is also names “bbpress” it simply doesn’t see them. My understanding from the WordPress documentation is that if you put the file in a child theme in the exact same heirarchal location as it is in the parent theme it should pick it up, but that’s not how it’s working.
I made a custom loop-forums.php. The structure of the default folder is that this file is inside a folder already called bbpress. When I copy over all the files form default in my parent theme to bbpress in my child theme I end up with a bbpress folder containing all of the php files inside of the bbpress folder that I created for the child them. Then upload my custom loop-fourm.php to the folder where it normally resides, it doesn’t pick up the change. When I put it at the root it does pick it up. However, changes to the CSS files in bbpress/CSS get picked up.
I’m having this same problem with other files in the child theme where I can’t figure out where to place php files to have them be recognized in the child theme, so it might be something wrong with the way the theme handles child themes, but I have no way to know this.In reply to: Forums index in the same layout as other bb software
Thanks! Worked like a charm and looks fantastic. Exactly what I needed. You have saved me much hair pulling and banging of head on desk.
I should also add that I’m not 100% certain this is correct. It works for the CSS files but it doesn’t seem to pick up the php files in ../wp-content/themes/yourchildtheme/bbpress/bbpress. It works if I move them up a level to the top level bbpress folder, or even under the child theme folder, though. I haven’t read enough about child themes yet to figure out why this is the case, but it works, it’s just odd that you can’t have the files in the same structure in a child theme.
Thanks, I didn’t realize I could do that. I’ve only been using bbPress for about a week so I’m not sure I’m an authority. I spent the morning working it out and figured I could save someone else the frustration. I will take a look at updating the codex when I get some spare time, but if anyone wants to take this info and add it before I get to it feel free.
