Overriding Templates

You can overwrite any of the parent theme files by copying them to your child theme folder, retaining the directory structure. For example if you want to overwrite buddypress-functions.php from the parent theme, this file is located in aardvark/lib/inc/ so in the child theme you need to replicate the directory structure to give aardvark-child/lib/inc/buddypress-functions.php.
