#2385 closed enhancement (fixed)

Give some love to the RTL style!

Reported by: alex-ye Owned by: johnjamesjacoby
Milestone: 2.5 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.3.2
Component: Appearance - Theme Compatibility Keywords: has-patch early

Currently bbPress have both styles for LTR and RTL languages, bbpress.css and bbpress-rtl.css but the bbpress-rtl.css is just a full copy of bbpress.css with some confections.

What that means?
Generally WordPress themes have the both style.css and rtl.css the second file loaded (in addition) only when the RTL languages in use, unlike bbPress if you want to change an element colour you should modify the bbpress.css and bbpress-rtl.css !

This is confusing and make the developing really hard for both theme developers and core developers!

I have uploaded a new version of bbpress-rtl.css which contents the RTL styles ony, we will need to update bbpress-functions.php to load the both bbpress.css and bbpress-rtl.css at the same time.
