    I’m wondering how to get started with creating a theme for BBPress inside of my BuddyPress theme.

    That’s it. Any pointers?

    Thanks

    Put the bbPress theme files into your WordPress theme directory:

    wp-content/themes/yourtheme

    In yourtheme/css place the bbpress.css file
    In yourtheme/bbpress, place all of the files you need to edit. Most of them (I believe):

    bbpress/content-archive-forum.php
    bbpress/content-archive-topic.php
    bbpress/content-search.php
    bbpress/content-single-forum.php
    bbpress/content-single-reply.php
    bbpress/content-single-topic-lead.php
    bbpress/content-single-topic.php
    bbpress/content-single-user.php
    bbpress/content-single-view.php
    bbpress/content-statistics.php
    bbpress/content-topic-tag-edit.php
    bbpress/feedback-logged-in.php
    bbpress/feedback-no-access.php
    bbpress/feedback-no-forums.php
    bbpress/feedback-no-replies.php
    bbpress/feedback-no-search.php
    bbpress/feedback-no-topics.php
    bbpress/form-anonymous.php
    bbpress/form-forum.php
    bbpress/form-protected.php
    bbpress/form-reply-move.php

    Thanks a lot. Do you know if there is a boiler plate or some sample files around somewhere I can take a look at?

    These are probably questions better asked on bbPress forum – remember although bbPress integrates with buddyPress it is a standalone plugin.

    I doubt however you need to overload all the files as above.

    Thanks Hugo.

    I’ll head over to their forums and see what turns up.

    There is a basic outline of what to do http://codex.bbpress.org/theme-compatibility/

    Also this should be helpful:

    http://codex.bbpress.org/theme-compatibility/step-by-step-guide-to-creating-a-custom-bbpress-theme/

    You also only need to copy the templates that you want to change.

    That’ll do it for ya. Sorry if my post wasn’t as clear as it should have been — I personally need to edit every file when I create my bbPress themes.
