Converting Buddypress 1.8 to Bootstrap
I’m in the process of writing the spec for a new project that will be using Buddypress 1.8.
I have a WordPress starter theme of my own, built with Bootstrap 3.0 (RC1 right now), upon which the whole site will be built.
We’d like to integrate BP 1.8 into the new site, however instead of writing a bunch of CSS to make the BP pages look like the rest of the site, I’d like to change the layout files of BuddyPress to use Bootstrap’s HTML syntax therefore inheriting the styles and layouts of the whole theme automatically.
My question is, how to best approach this:
1 – Should I copy all the files from /bp-templates/bp-legacy/buddypress into my own theme’s /themeroot/buddypress and modify from there?
2 – Should I override only the files I need, by copying them into my theme and obeying the theme hirearchy?
3 – Is there a better way?
Thanks very much in advance for any help or tips!
