Child Themes, 1.2 & bp-default: No Child Theme Left Behind
@Andy – In the Codex, you state (re bp-default and child theming):
NOTE: This will be changing for the upcoming BuddyPress 1.2. The overall idea remains exactly the same, however you should be using the new bp-default theme as a parent theme instead. This theme is much simpler to work with.
Could you elaborate a little more on using bp-default as a parent? The guide as is would imply deactivating bp-default and setting it as “Template: bp-default” in a new child theme.
But then in bp-default you state:
** IMPORTANT – DO NOT COPY THIS THEME **
If you want to make a custom theme based on this theme, DO NOT copy and edit it. By
doing this you will make upgrades and maintainence much harder for yourself.
Instead, please read this codex page on how to build a BuddyPress child theme:
So what do you suggest as a starting point for child theme dev? Or will bp-default morph into a parent with a skeleton child theme emerging a la how bp-classic was?
