    Hi everyone,

    I have unfortunately created a custom theme, started using buddypress with member profiles that have been populated, and now need to create a child theme to customise it. I realise I’ve done this the wrong way round but can’t seem to find a solution.

    Can this be achieved after the fact? If so, can someone point me in the right direction in how to set this up with minimum downtime please.

    Look forward to a response,
    Hash

    Building a child theme and then switching shouldn’t be a problem. For a tutorial on how to create a child theme see the Codex

    Hi Henry,

    Just to confirm…

    The site has a custom WP theme with BP integrated as standard. So it’s already inherited some of the styles and such. So if I make a child theme as above to the BP install, will it keep all the users and profiles intact?

    Assuming it just calls the child theme because there is one.

    Thanks

    Actually I’ve just created the child theme and obviously it doesn’t work as it’s not the active theme.

    So in essence, I don’t want a buddypress theme to activate as I already have my own, I just want to use buddypress within my own theme, and customise it.

    Any ideas,
    Thanks

    But that was the point of BP 1.7, theme compatibility. The codex is your friend, have a look through it for info on working with theme compatibility.
