How do I create a child theme? Want to customize buddypress; forums, profle page
Hello; need help please.
I’m still new to website development, but ready to work with child themes. I am using WordPress 3.8.1 multisite, and buddypress 1.9.2. I am also using the Weaver-II theme, which I very much like. My website is: http://whosgotbooks.com
I was using an older thread to create a child theme for buddypress, where “bp-default” is called in the Template: field. I’ve come to realize this will not work in buddypress 1.9.2 because of the bp-default theme is no longer being used.
Here is what I tried to do:
Theme Name: Custom Forums by Jerry
Them URI: http://whosgotbooks.com/themes/gotbooks_forums/
Description: A custom child theme for Who’s Got Books?
Author: Jerry Caldwell
Author URI: http://whosgotbooks.com
Tags: buddypress, forums, custom
I am basically trying to achieve the ability to perform full customization of the buddypress portion of my website, from fonts and colors, to forum layout, to profile page layout, or as simple as special wording on the registration page. But obviously I can’t accomplish any of this if I cannot get my first child-theme to work. I did manage to change the wording for the registration page, but in the main register.php file. I would rather have changed this in a child-theme.
If anyone has some time to get me started I will really appreciate it! Maybe in the future I’ll be good enough to come hear and help others, but I am a ways off from that.
