bbPress 2.1 RC 2 / Theme Compat Questions
Please forgive me for being a complete Village Idiot in regards to WP + bbPress…
I am working on a 2nd site, it’s in development right now. I have BuddyPress installed and inactive, bbPress 2.1 RC 2 installed and active (working well so far, I might add).
I am also using the Custom-Community-Pro theme by ThemeKraft because the young lady that will manage this site is even more clueless than I am and needs the easy CSS updates this provides.
Per the below (copied in the text I’m referring too at bottom of post), I thought with 2.1 we no longer needed to make child themes, etc., for bbPress to match our WP theme. Am I missing something (most likely)? Do I need to still create a child theme or follow the other directions below on making bbP match my site seamlessly?
Again, my apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere…
Thanks and Regards ~ Alisa
Codex Home → Theme Compatibility
As of 2.1, bbPress has built-in theme support. All required elements such as front-end editing are included. This means that all functionality will work, even when a theme has no specific bbPress coding.
All bbPress compat can be overridden using a theme or another plugin. Check bbp-theme-compat template wrappers for what a normal theme should include.
To customize bbPress::
Create a new directory within your theme root called ‘bbpress’ for example: wp-content/themes/YOURTHEME/bbpress
Copy any files from bbPress/bbp-theme-compat/ to the new directory within your theme
Edit the new files for complete control over bbPress display in the theme
You can completely disable the included front-end elements by adding the following to your theme’s functions.php:
add_theme_support( ‘bbpress’ );
