Placing theme files inside folder of child theme?

  • greenhoe



    I have a custom wordpress theme which I also use a child theme and I know to edit and customize the buddypress theme you need to place the files such as archive-forum.php in your child theme folder or main theme folder.

    I was wondering is it possible to have a folder for all the bbpress main theme components so that they don’t clutter up my main child theme?

    In the plugin all the main theme files are stored in a folder called extra, I would like to be able to have a folder called extra in my child theme and have worpdress recognize all the bbpress theme files.

  • Indeed bbPress does this too 🙂

    Quick answer, copy the templates you need into your theme folder under /bbpress

    Thank you, I didn’t think I could do that because the plugin has all the Template Parts in the bbpress folder and the actual custom post type themes in the extra folder, so can I move the template parts out of the bbpress folder into a new one too? That way I can keep those separate?
