Can a section.xxx.php file be placed in the child theme to override platformpro's section file?

Recommended Posts

Would like to specifically override the section.twitterbar.php file by dropping it into the child theme's sections folder and making changes from there. It seems like it's not overriding and it's been tested on a few server types. Is this possible? The bottom paragraph describes this functionality for templates: http://www.pagelines.com/docs/custom-sections The reason for the override: http://www.pagelines.com/forum/discussion/13979/twitterbar-issues#Item_1 Thanks.

Sort of.. but it can't use the same name. Check out the basics involving another issue here (disregard the large section of code and focus more on the steps): http://www.pagelines.com/forum/discussion/13929/how-to-add-pinterest-to-sharebar

Hmm, having issues with the method you posted above. To verify that the edits to twitterbar weren't the issue, I tried to create a 2nd sharebar with your tutorial and code. The Content Sharing Tool2 never showed in the PageLines Settings section just as the new Twitter Bar2 never showed. Any ideas?

Hi, I think the issue you may be having is that, you need to register the custom section. To do this read the link below: http://www.pagelines.com/docs/custom-sections
