[Resolved] Buddypress Template Pak or Create a Child Theme or Something Else?
I am new to the WordPress and Buddypress world. I have a theme I want to use, but needs to be updated for Buddypress. So if I use the BuddyPress Template Pak I need to modify a number of templates or modify the header.php, footer.php, and sidebar.php and rename them header-buddypress.php, footer-buddypress.php, and sidebar-buddypress.php. I think I actually only need to modify sidebar-buddypress.php. Do I leave the name of the file sidebar-buddypress.php? Can there be problems on the next update of Buddypress if I modify any of these files?
I have also considered creating a child theme using my current theme as the parent theme. Would this be a better way to go then editing template files?
I am trying to do this the “best practices” way and trying to avoid problems updating Buddypress in the future.
