Re: New BuddyPress 1.2 default theme
I’ve just checked the theme in. To answer andrea_r’s question above —
You will still be able to build themes from bp-sn-parent. That theme is not going away, it will continue to be present for the foreseeable future. I have updated it to be compatible with all the latest BuddyPress changes.
The new bp-default theme will actually be a parent theme. For the default it makes less sense making a separate parent theme since you can simply just leave out all the default CSS and keep the templates.
The structure has changed though, and overall is much better and easier to understand. It follows the navigation of the actual site much closer. Plus there is less than half the CSS and only one major CSS file. The JS has also been hugely simplified.
