Re: Unplugged: A Dark and Sleek Child Theme for Buddypress 1.2+
Actually there is a bug in your CSS file which is the reason it’s not picking up the bp-default as the parent.
In your child theme’s style.css you have:
@import url( ../../plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/style.css );
This should be:
/* Inherit the default theme styles */
@import url( ../../plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/_inc/css/default.css );
/* Inherit the admin bar styles */
@import url( ../../plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/_inc/css/adminbar.css );
This was totally my fault, and was a mistake in the writeup of how to do it. If you do it this way, you can simply add your style overrides in style.css below those two lines.
