Where Are Default Template Files For Me To Copy And Tweak?

    @demonboy

    I understand that I have to create a sub-directory in plugins/bbpress/my-templates/, which will contain my template files. Also I understand that I only have to create specific custom pages where I need them, so on the very first page of my forums (i.e. http://www.followtheboat.com/forums/) I need to create a page called front-page.php. For example, I don’t want my page title to be ‘Forums’, I want it to be ‘Followtheboat Forums’.

    Presumably before uploading any themes the forum is using a default theme and must be calling up a default page called front-page.php. I want to use that default front-page.php file so I can use it as a base and tweak it, but where is it? I thought it should be in bbp-themes/bbp-twentyten but it isn’t there.

    Finally, the instructions say ‘Activating a theme is even easier. Just select it from you bbPress install’s Presentation Admin Panel’. What? Where? Do you mean ‘http://www.myblog.com/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=bbpress’, because it is not there.

    Hi anointed. I’m using 2.0.

    I think those are the directions for the 1x system, not the 2x plugin.

    Follow these instructions:

    You don’t create subdirectories in the plugin folder etc.. It is now a totally compliant wordpress way of doing things now. Basically, you don’t ‘have to’ copy any files to your theme, but you can if you want to make changes to bbpress.

    Thanks for that, I’m following the procedure now. Cheers.
