HI I need to use a child theme and not sure the best route to take. 

 

 

I want to customise woocommerce plugin by inserting a new directory, will this work with PL customise plugin or do I need a child theme? 

 

Also I need to customise the fixed pl nav bar as well as other sections.

 

Another customisation is to a plugin called woo tickets,  I need to add a directory to dms theme but im aware it would be better to this in a child theme. 

 

Last ? do i need to activate a child theme wp themes? 

 

Im working  on a local server server aswell.

 

 

Thanks

Hi Dyer,

 

To customize the PageLines Navbar, you will want to use a child theme and follow these instructions here - http://docs.pagelines.com/advanced/override-sections

 

However, I am unsure as to what you mean when you say customize the WooCommerce plugin, by adding a new directory nor am I sure what you mean with your WooTickets question.

Both of these aren't PageLines products, therefore, I recommend you ask these question on the WooThemes support forums.

Live Chat has been discontinued, the reason for this was it was being misused. Live Chat was never intended as a support chat, but as a community channel for PageLines Plus users to discuss PageLines Framework with PageLines staff there to moderate the chat.

 

The problem was that users were just logging in asking a support question and expecting it to be answered, this includes 99.9% of the time the same user having a forum topic open regarding the very same issue. As you can imagine, it was very difficult to maintain as our support team were answering the user in live chat and then answering the forum topic.

The reason why we have a forum for support questions is that its open to public viewing and allows users to search for questions that may be related to their issue. However, Live chat wasn't open to the public and didn't offer the ability to find previously answered questions effectively.

      I am working on a multisite installation and had some questions regarding the themeing options. All the sites will have the same structure but each individual site would need a different h1 font and link color. I had originally thought that I would program/edit the parent theme to have a certain set of templates, font sizes, etc. and then that would feed to all the individual sites where I could activate the child theme and use the child theme to define the individual sites' specific link color, heading fonts, etc. So, what I was shooting for was:
      Parent theme = shared by all sites
      Child theme = specific to the minor customizations on a per site basis.
      Is this possible? Am I misunderstanding how these would actually deploy to the different sites?

      Should be a simple answer but not sure why its not doing this.  I have a child theme installed on pagelines 5 that has a hook so it will write over the theme css. Strange is that when I am on the frontend the code works but in the dashboard your theme takes over my code and its no where to be found. See examples attachments

      Hi,
      I am trying to remove the sidebar areas from my child theme (pagelines.com) from the post pages on a site:
      https://staging4.talltreemusicfestival.com/2017/grand-analog/
      The content is all the way to the left and very small, and the two sidebar areas are taking up a lot of space.
      What I'm after is content to the left, taking up most of the space, and then a small sidebar width on the right for widgets.
      I've tried selecting 'read width content' and 'full width content' in the edit screen for the WP content section, but it doesn't change.  If I try to move the sidebars (1 or 2) to the left, it doesn't change.
      If I select the pagelines framework theme (not child), the two sidebars go away when not selecting them in the edit screen..
      Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
      Thanks in advance.
      -Matt

      Hi, I noticed that framework and pagelines.com child theme has a number of errors when run through themecheck. The others, like material and bootstrap, don't have any errors when run through theme check. Is there a way to get it so that there are no errors on the child theme?
