Re: new 2.8.1 mu + buddypress.. theme bug
I was thinking that maybe the BP Devs should change BP so that the BuddyPress themes can optionally be installed in the standard themes directory.
That way if they were able to be configured like wordpress child themes, site designers would have the option of making their BP member themes reuse styles from the theme they select for their BP home theme. That would limit the amount of CSS that needs to be developed.
I gave it a try by attempting to create a child theme of bphome. Whilst I can select it, BP ignores it and just displays bpmember.
What do you think of this suggestion?
