Reverse engineering Wordpress functionality

I've been working on making a mirror of a site that we're using for another project. The original site is working fine, but a few of the custom tweaks that the former webmaster made aren't carrying over. One of these is a box on the post creation screen that allows / disallows others to remix
(pictured at the link) your work. We're working off of a BuddyPress framework. Any ideas about how to find the template file that's calling this? More details inside...

Initially I started with a fresh installation of both Word and Buddy press.
We're using a custom theme that I designed based off of Frisco for Buddypress, which is itself a child theme of the default BP theme. None of the remix functionality was working at first, but after copying over the BP-Default theme folder from the functional version of the site it enabled half of the remix functionality (a button next to the post title which users can click on to remix stories - based off of a copy post plugin). This leads me to believe that the old webmaster made changes to stuff in the Buddypress plugin folder to implement this stuff, but I'm hesitant just copying over the whole BP folder to my new site because I don't want to mess stuff up.
All of the plugins from the old site have been copied over exactly to the new site.
Is there a template that would likely contain code to insert the box linked above? I'd like to just copy over a single file, if possible.
