Well @DJPaul kicked it off with the initial patch based on feedback from a couple of devs on this ticket:
The codex entry needs a little additional editing and linking to my earlier page on 1.7 template compatibility.
@hnla Is that updated for the “final” version in 1.8? So many changes in that ticket 🙂
@DJPaul Yep think it’s all good to go I’ve run it through a few tests and all feels great, the ticket had become so convoluted that it was suggested a line drawn under and any later enhancements to the principle started in new ticket, but personally I think we have the flexibility needed now with devs creating their own bp_get_template_part calls if they need to drill down further.
@djpaul and @hnla I do apologise for missing you off the list. This will make life far easier for theme developers everywhere
…and of course everyone else involved in the project.
