Error in Building a BuddyPress Child Theme

Reported by: johnchalkandtalkcouk's profile john@… Owned by:

This is shown:

@import url("../../plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/_inc/css/default.css");
/* Inherit the default theme adminbar styles */
@import url("../../plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/_inc/css/adminbar.css");

This fails.

I think it should be:

@import url("../../../../plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/_inc/css/default.css");
/* Inherit the default theme adminbar styles */
@import url("../../../../plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/_inc/css/adminbar.css");

  • Resolution set to invalid

That seems incorrect to me. Are you putting your child theme in wp-content/themes (which is where they should go)? If you're putting them in wp-content/plugins/bp-themes/, you're doing it wrong.

In any case, the codex is a wiki, so if you find a genuine error, you can correct it yourself. But I don't think this one is a real error.

I suggest that you take inquiries like this to the support forums, where there will be more eyeballs. This bug tracker is for bugs with the core software, not the Codex.
