How to install theme for bbPress WP Plugin? Stock instructions incorrect
Havent found definitive answers anywhere since most everyone who has tried to install a bbPress theme to a current version of the bbPress plugin for WP has discovered that the stock instructions on the bbPress.org wiki and elsewhere are outdated/wrong. If you are not using stock TwentyTen as your parent theme, bbPress theming is broken out of the box – you get a theme broken/not installed message from your admin panel.
When bbPress thusly reverts to its stock look it’s ugly, unusable, and broken. Currently my forums at txmma.com/forum do not work properly as a result. when you drill down and actually try to read a topic you cannot. no content comes up. That’s outside of the fact that aesthetically there’s nothing there you would want to use.
I was wondering if anyone has successfully installed a third party bbPress theme or rolled their own, with the plugin version of bbPress, when using a custom WordPress theme (i.e. not TwentyTen).
Copying the theme files as directed in the bbPress.org instructions is useless as many have discovered.
Any advice appreciated. Thanks.
