My BuddyPress Theme Development
I’m building a BuddyPress theme, and have always found it a really overwhelming task in the past.
This time round (it’s not that different to previous attempts) i’ve tried to prepare a set of BuddyPress theme files (not so disimilar to bp-default) that area empty and ready to template for.
That said, it lacks a whole lot of the default BuddyPress functionality. All ajax has been removed for example.
So the workflow is simple, work on one component at a time and review as it goes.
I’ve had massive troubles using CSS effectively with the wealth of BuddyPress template files, not to mention BBPress… So the solution was to create independent files for all components.
Now I can get up in the morning (fortunately or unfortunately I don’t have a day job right now), and tackle a single component (hence the “Day in review” blog posts).
Would love to hear peoples thoughts.
I’ll be working on the registration soon, so hopefully there will be some buddies on here to help encourage the theme completion.
