2.0 General Theme Questions…

  • jabbamonkey


    First off, when a download a bbpress theme, does it need to be a theme that was specifically created for 2.0? Or can I use a 1.0 theme? If I need 2.0 themes, where is a good place to get 2.0 themes, cause most places have the old themes?

    On the theme guide for 2.0 …

    It says…

    …you’ll need to tell bbPress that you are in control of the theme situation. You do this by adding this to your functions.php file:

    add_theme_support( ‘bbpress’ );

    Where is the functions.php file? I downloaded a new template ( and placed it in my wp-content/themes/mythemename-child folder. There is no functions.php file there.

    I also looked in my bbpress plugin directory (located in wp-content/plugins/bbpress). I dont see a functions.php file. I checked the directories in there … in bbpress/bbp-themes/bbp-twentyten/ there is a functions.php … but I don’t want to use that theme!

    That’s the start of my questions. Please help. Want to get this configured.

    bbpress 2.0 uses WordPress themes. bbPress 0.x and 1.x use bbPress themes.

    You would add the line “add_theme_support( ‘bbpress’ );” to the functions.php file of a WordPress theme so it knows to play nice with bbPress 2.x.
