Child Theme

    How do you handle css changes? Currently I try to find the element with firebug or chrome and modify the default theme in the BP plugin folder. Should I try to create a BP child theme? That is, copy default and save with different name within plugin folder?
    Or, can I replace Default theme with BP-Colors? Thank you

    @gparrott The bad news: “In BuddyPress 1.9, we begin the process of phasing out the BuddyPress Default theme” per http://bpdevel.wordpress.com/2013/11/13/the-future-of-the-bp-default-theme/ So I strongly recommend for future compatiblity that you do not waste your time creating a child theme for the BP Default theme.

    The good news: Since BP 1.7 and the introduction of theme compatibility, BuddyPress has worked seamlessly with nearly all WP themes so check out the many choices available at http://wordpress.org/themes/

    I thought I saw something about that. As a just recent user, I downloaded 1.8.1 a couple of weeks ago and bp-theme was included. So that’s what I have been modifying. I have a partial list of the code I modified, can’t say I got it all, can anyone suggest what I’m to do to prepare for 1.9? Or should I just stop, delete default and try to rebuild with my theme?
    My theme, magazine premium is listed as a BP theme.
