Re: BuddyPress Links 0.2-RC1 now available
I agree it is annoying having to manually move the theme files. Have you actually put them in bp-sn-parent/ and it worked? I have never tried that! I have designed it so the folder goes in your “default” or customized default theme.
There are two issues with your proposal for automatic moving.
1. If the links dir goes into bp-sn-parent, what happens when buddypress gets updated?
2. If it goes into your main theme, how will I know that I am not overwriting any customizations you have made?
I think the long term solution is to keep the links theme files in the plugin directory, and auto-detect if any custom files were put in your theme folder, but I am not sure if and how that would work.
If anyone has done this successfully with buddypress, please give me a shout!
