<strike>Is there a way to change the homepage of the Blogs.MU theme (BuddyPress mode) such that instead of 3 widgeted areas there are only 2: the right one being 60% width, the left retaining it's 30-ish% width?</strike>
Ok, nm, I found it. In the Lib/Templates/WP-template/services.php file, I removed a column. Cheers.
In my child theme, the theme continues to revert to the CSS in the parent theme's "_inc" folder. I have copied all of the _inc directory and it's contents into my child them, but WP still references the parent theme's _inc folder.
Is this a standard behavior, and if so, how do I override the few styles I need to tweak?
