Themes or Styles for Member Pages in BP 1.1.2
I’m using WPMU 22.214.171.124 and have just installed BP 1.1.2. For this project we are not going to allow users (registered members) to create blogs and we’re not using forums so I have these components disabled under BP.
I have noticed that the use of two themes — one for the main blog and one for the BP pages — has been discontinued. I read the article about parent/child themes and I think I understood that, but I think the child themes approach is only relevant to my project if we were going to have a bunch of sub-blogs and wanted to apply individual themes to them, which is not the case here.
What I do need to be able to do is have a “theme” or design for the BP members pages that is NOT the same as the main theme that I have selected the site under the WPMU tools.
In the earlier version of BP I was able to select a theme for the BP pages from a drop-down in the General Settings screen. That drop-down has apparently been eliminated in BP 1.1.2.
It seems that the new default functionality is that the BP pages will use the same theme as set within WPMU. However, I need to have those pages look very different from the default theme. I haven’t been able to find any posts or articles that address this.
So, does anyone know of a way for me to deploy a different “theme” or design for my BP pages under BP 1.1.2?
