BP Template Overloader is an attempt to make the overloading process much more accessible and easier to manage, it provides a simple yet powerful interface which displays all available overload files along with their status, where overload files are detected it provides a viewer that compares the overload with the current BP master file. Template Overloader also provides the ability to migrate to a Theme Independent Overload. It’s also built to help you migrate to the forthcoming BP-Nouveau theme should you want to.
Very often with a BuddyPress site there is a need to make minor changes to the default behaviour of the site not supported by the available settings. Often these changes can be implemented using plugins but in a lot of cases what is required are small sections of code that you will insert into your sites files called Code Snippets.
