Cannot Edit bp-default Child Theme Files Other Than style.css

Reported by: mercime's profile mercime Owned by:
Milestone: 1.5 Priority: normal
Severity: Version:
Component: Core Keywords:


BP 1.2.8 and WP 3.1

Only style.css file of bp-default child theme can be edited.
First reported by @StevieG

I was able to replicated in test multisite install:

e.g. bp-default child theme mychild folder has following files:

  • footer.php
  • functions.php
  • header.php
  • style.css
  1. Go to Network Admin > Appearance > Edit
  1. Choose bp-default child theme, mychild, and style.css is default file for editing and links to other child theme files are listed.
  1. Choose footer.php, header.php, or functions.php file of said child theme and you get "Sorry, that file cannot be edited." screen online.

Note: I can edit other child theme files of WordPress and custom BuddyPress framework child theme files.

Confirmed, but it's a WordPress bug relating to register_theme_directory. Investigating...

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 1.3
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

Not a BuddyPress bug :)
