    I’m finally back working on the “HELP” BuddyPress child theme that I started months ago, just thought I’d share some of the details with the community to get some running feedback while its in development.

    Live demo:

    Things of note so far:
    - This is child theme built on top of the default BP theme
    - The layouts and styling of most of the core functions remains the same as the default theme, with a few tweaks here and there (still working through each section)
    - ‘accent’ colour will be customisable via the admin (will change links, main nav highlight, header hover colour – all the burnt orange bits)
    - Custom widgetised-homepage, with custom interface added to ‘widgets’ screen (admin screen shot )
    - Three additional widgets (for use with custom homepage, or in the pre-existing sidebar) new widgets are:
    – “Recent Forum posts” – from all forums or a selected forum
    – “Blog post loop” – from all categories or a select category
    – “Groups + Topics” – as seen on my site (link above) show selected groups and recent topics from each
    - Relocated BP admin bar, sits alongside main nav, retains drop-down functionality (see demo site)
