creating a child-theme

  • Sascha.H


    Hey guys i have a little problem. Actually i installed wordpress on my server and created a standard clean theme. Here is the Screen:

    parent theme

    Than i created a child theme connected it with my parent theme via the style.css

    And now i thought i have to put the bbpress folder into my child theme. Is this correct? The question is just which folders? Just copy all from default in my child theme or just the content of bbpress?


    The same problem with buddypress i want to put it in my child theme but i dont know what. All folders copy paste? Or just the content of my bp_template or maybe bp_theme folder?


    PS: I tried a bit on my local server at the plugin folder and want would change 2 things at my bbpress forum. 1) Is there a solution that i can upload images when using the editor? I think its very uncomfortable to put a link from another server in the editor. I want to handle it like facebook just upload it on my server and its in the post. 2) How can i delete the /forums in my url? i want my url like http://www.myurl./forumname but actually its

    Hope you can help me i want to start with this awesome plugin but 🙂

    please be patient, all the responders on here are volunteers and are not dedicated to this site.

    It doesn’t go in your theme or child theme folder.

    You should upload the bbpress plugin, which will then place the bbpress files in your wp-content/plugins folder. Whiolst you can do that yourself, let wordpress and the plugin do their work

    so Dashboard>plugins>add new plugin and search for bbpress, then load it and activate

    Do the same with buddypress

    on your 2 questions

    1. yes there are plugins that allow an upload – for instance
    2. Just disable that part dashboard>settings>forums> look for forum root slug, and you’ll see a tick box to disable it.



    Well the problem isnt that i cant install it. Actually i had installed both plugins but i dont want to rewrite the plugin code because when the plugins will be updated my code will be overwrited thats why i want a child-theme but i dont know which parts from the plugin in which folder.

    1. Thank you
    2. The Problem is the basic URL is and when i disable the thickbox its But i want zero tags before. And when i delete the forum field and save than it appears again.

    which parts of the plugin do you want to re-write?

    You will always be prompted for bbpress updates, so no code you write will be lost by mistake.

    If it is templates that you want to alter, then copy only the ones you alter to


    see section 3

    of it’s functions, then you should change these using filters see
