Thanks Margaret. I must have misinterpreted something you said because its not working. Maybe you can clarify a couple things.
When you say “create a new folder in your child-theme, you’re talking about the child theme folder at /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-child, not the original theme folder at /wp-content/themes/twentytenchild, right?
3 and 4.
I deleted ‘@import url(‘../bp-default/style.css’);’ but I should still leave the following, right?
Again, are you referring to the path to the buddypress child theme or in the regular /wp-content/themes folder? in your example above, you pointed to the regular themes folder.
I’m not so sure i added that line in the proper syntax. here’s a look (http://pastebin.com/nwD7Pjkr). it’s at the very bottom right before ?>. Is that where you mean to put it? please advise.
