Sure I can just use child/styles.css
I’m using the Genesis Framework, specifically using the Genesis Sample child-theme.
Header? You mean the part that’s commented in the css file on top? Here it is:
/** Theme Name: Genesis Sample Theme URI: http://www.studiopress.com/ Description: This is the sample theme created for the Genesis Framework. Author: StudioPress Author URI: http://www.studiopress.com/ Version: 2.2.4 Template: genesis Template Version: 2.2.3 */
On a related note do you use the same technique to the other files to edit the BP theme. I mean only copy the file you want to edit and only include the custom edits.
For example plugins/buddypress/bp-templates/bp-legacy/buddypress/activity/activity-loop.php
Thanks for the tips.
Here’s what I did earlier:
– I did in fact copy the /child/buddypress/css/buddypress.css file, including all css.
– I did not make any changes to it so far, I’m just testing how this works at this point.
Something doesn’t seem right if I’m understanding what you said. If I delete everything in the /child/buddypress/css/buddypress.css file I’m not adding anything. It should just jump to the default buddypress.css file and display the default BP look. Instead, when I clear the file it basically strips all css and that’s it. The BP pages look unstyled since there isn’t any css loading.
Did some more troubleshooting and seems like if I have the /child/buddypress/css/buddypress.css file it just loads that file and stops there, it doesn’t reach out to the default buddypress.css.
I’m going to keep troubleshooting, any ideas as to what’s going on please let me know.
Well that was strange.
I deactivated all my plugins except for BuddyPress. Then activated them all again. WORKS !!!
If anyone has any theories as to why it worked it would be nice to know.
I must be missing something basic.
Just to clarify this is the correct location:
genesis-sample is the child theme by the way.
OK fair enough. I did look through the BP codex regarding this and am still unclear what is the best and easiest path.
My site is basic and includes the Header, Content, and Footer. I am using Genesis theme and created another template where I make several adjustments to the Header and this template is called buddypress.php and I can select it when I’m in the backend and creating pages. I’m sure there are many paths but I was thinking that the easiest one is to simply have BP load the new template I created, for all BP pages. I’m pretty sure currently it is loading the themes template called “pages.php”
Please point me in the right direction, much appreciated.
