Sites using parent/child theme architecture?

  • If you’re asking if anyone’s released any child themes then no, I’m not aware of any yet.

    If you’re asking for BuddyPress installs running the new parent/child theme system, look at this site and testbp.org.

    testbp and this site seem the same as before… wonder if any other bp user has implemented on their site.

    I will be using the following schema:

    - parent theme: Thesis

    - child theme: my own bp framework

    Thesis has no support for BP, so all BP work is done in the child theme. However, the current trunk version is not friendly with this kind of setup :(

    Sounds like a great idea, what would be the main benefits of something like this?

    To have a BP theme that matches my current WP theme.

    This also makes it easier (if you do it right :) ) to use any other WP theme as a parent theme with little work.

    I’m essentially thinking of doing the same with Theme Hybrid. I’m guessing you move over the BP-specific templates to the Thesis theme directory and build the children off of the Thesis parent directory. Is this right?

    Then you figure out how to make the css and functions work with this setup in your child. Interesting thing about Hybrid, most everything is done through style.css and functions and child themes have few, if any templates (as least with the two I’ve looked at).

    Let us know when you have a working model we can view
