BuddyPress + Child Theme + Events Manager

    This is for the poor soul that runs into the same problem and finds this through Google. the Events Manager plugin was not working with my child theme. I even tried clearing all files out of my theme, so in theory it was the same as the parent theme, but the plugin was still not working. If I set the theme to “BuddyPress Default 1.2.7″ the plugin works.

    So if my child theme uses files from the parent that I do not overwrite in my child, and my child had no files whatsoever, why would the plugin work with the default theme but not my child.

    The solution is copy :
    /plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/members/single/plugins.php
    to
    /themes/YourTheme/members/single/plugins.php

    Even though my child theme had no plugins.php file, code from the parent plugins.php file was not being accessed. After copying this file the Events Manager plug in works like a charm.

    Either this is a BuddyPress bug or I have made a mistake with the parent-child theme concept.
