DMS 2 built site NOT in child theme, now what?


Question

Posted · Report post

Last time I updated to DMS 2.07 and I lost a lot of my customizations.  I realize I should be using a child theme and want to get that working before I upgrade to 2.1.  I've read all the documentation I could find and uploaded Skelton to WordPress.  Now what?  Thanks!

Hi CoachJo

I copy/paste another Bat´s reply to you 
:)

 

If you need add some CSS code you can use a Child Theme

I use for this a Danny´s Child Theme, this works fine to me in all update.

https://github.com/Dannyholt/skeleton

 

You can install the .zip like a theme in your dashboard > themes > upload

You need activate the Theme and the copy/paste yours CSS rules in the style.css

I use the Child because I read this after update the theme

Please Note: Any customizations you have made to theme files will be lost. Please consider using child themes for modifications.

You can see the image

If you need to modify a section, you can copy this to your child

For example

wp-contents > theme > YOUR CHILD THEME > sections > YOUR SECTION TO MODIFY

Please, you take a look to this

Thanks, I had seen that post but I'm not clear on how all the modifications I've done get transferred, i.e. content, images, etc.

Hi again

You need have in the child theme
1. Your CSS rules in the style.cc
2. Your Hooks or Filter  (if you have one) in the functions.php
3. Your OWN sections (if you modified one)
