Is a Child Theme a must have?
Just curious if a Child Theme is always a Must Have when you’re building or making your own theme BuddyPress proof.
Surprise! bbPress already works this way, and it’s not far off for BuddyPress to inherit this new functionality, too.
I understand they way bbPress and also Jigoshop works, just copy-/paste some template from the plugin directory into your (own) Theme and Boom it’s done. You’ve got a safe theme that will not be overwritten by Plugin or WP updates.
Here they talk about making a Child Theme right from the start, and if you’re already have a Child Theme you should Go to step ….
It doesn’t say If you like to use Twenty Eleven (without Child) it’s okay.
So does it works without Child because i’m not a fan of it, i often duplicate and rename the Twenty Eleven and start editing stuff without making Childs.
