    • Bp-default CSS
      Template: bp-sn-parent – this tells BuddyPress that this child theme wishes to inherit all the template files from the bp-sn-parent theme
      @import url( _inc/css/custom.css );
      uncomment this line and upload a custom.css to /wp-content/themes/bp-default/_inc/css and use it to customize the CSS stying of your theme

      Creating Community with BuddyPress
    • BuddyPress Parent Theme
      Contains all template functions
      Do not alter  copy to the bp-default
      THEN you can alter it to your hearts content
      This keeps the bp-sn-parent theme framework completely intact and keeps your theme upgrade proof!
