#6214: TwentyFifteen BP Companion Stylesheet

  • @hnla raised the issue about how BuddyPress components were being rendered in the Twenty Fifteen default theme, “We have some issues in other themes, but in terms of the twenty* themes this is worst rendering of BP we’ve seen.” He brought up his previous suggestion about adding a minor companion sheet enqueued on basis of a theme slug check. I mentioned that while we provide minimal styles to allow theme styles to prevail, we need to set the styles to control the look of the BP elements in the case of the Twenty Fifteen theme (looks bad).
  • @boonebgorges approved the proposal to create this ticket and start work on a BP-specific stylesheet for the Twenty Fifteen theme. His advice was to “think about pushing fixes ‘upstream’ as much as possible (and to) always be thinking about whether a given change is appropriate for buddypress.css itself.”
  • @djpaulgibbs mentioned that there were a couple of contributors who spoke to him and JJJ at WCSF 2014 and wanted to contribute to BuddyPress in a design capacity. They have been preparing BP-specific stylesheets for the Twenty Fifteen and Twenty Fourteen themes.
  • Update: Ticket has been moved to BP 2.3.
