Version 2.3.1: Adapting the default theme into a child theme?

  • pndalal


    I’m trying to follow this tutorial to create a child theme, but I’m having trouble on Step 6, where it asks me to copy the default theme from wp-content > plugins > bbpress > bbp-themes > bbp-twentyten.

    There is no bbp-themes folder anywhere in the bbpress directory. The closest thing I found to a themes folder is the templates folder, which does contain some default styling. Could someone please explain to me how I can make Step 6 work? Or could you perhaps link me to an up-to-date tutorial?

  • That article is out of date and is no longer correct for the newly released 2.3.x.

    With current version of bbPress, you only files that need to be in your theme are the files you plan on changing.

    For example if you want to tweak the CSS, then you would copy the bbpress/templates/default/css/bbpress.css to [your-theme-directory]/css/bbpress.css and bbPress will automatically use your version instead.

    This goes for almost all the bbPress template files. For example, let’s sayo you want to edit the bbPress search page. You would copy bbpress/templates/default/bbpress/content-search.php to [your-theme-directory]/bbpress/content-search.php.

    The only time you would really need to copy and create the entire bbPress template would be if you need it to be theme independent, eg distribute it.

    Hopefully that makes some sense 🙂



    Thanks Jared! I’ll try that out.
