How do I install a bbPress theme?

  • xarzu


    I am a newbee. Don’t laugh at my stupid question.

    How do I install a bbPress theme? I created the “my-templates” directory and I unzipped my theme into a folder in that directory. But when I go to my bbPress dashboard, the screenshot for my new theme shows a blank space with a red X in the upper left corner. When I click to “Activate” the theme it shows a featureless version of bbPress with no theme at all.

    Are the permissions on the my-templates folder 0755 (drwxr-xr-x)?

    And inside your my-templates folder, what does a directory listing look like? Is there a folder with all your theme files inside it? Do you have a style.css there with your theme name in the header?



    Awesome! (that worked)

    Now, do I need to change the permissions back?

    And inside my my-templates folder, I have just one folder for all the files from my theme (inove). So, yes, there is one folder with all my theme files inside it? And yes, I have a style.css and the theme name is in the header like this:

    Theme Name: iNove

    Anyway, it works now. Thanks. Changing the permissions did the trick.



    You do not need to change the permissions. For that directory, they can remain 0755.
