Child theme config file download

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

When you export your DMS config settings when you have a child theme I think it used to download the file.  Since I upgraded to DMS 1.1.3 it now says there is no file to download. Clicking publish and download seems to do something but it still says there is no file to download.

 

There is a config file in the child theme folder though but I don't seem to be able to download it.

 

I'm using WP 3.6

 

Thanks in advance :)

Make sure your Wordpress is the latest version as well as the DMS system. 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

Not all the plugins I need are tested / available in the latest version of WP that's why I'm a little behind the latest.

 

Isn't DMS 1.1.3 the lates version?

Not sure what you mean ?

Are you referring to this - http://d.pr/i/EVEz

 

If so you need a child theme to be active for this option to function. This option wont work if DMS (Parent) is the active theme, as it is not a child theme.

Yes that's what I'm referring to. I'm already using a child theme and previously published and downloaded the config file (a copy downloaded I'm assuming).

Since I've upgraded its saying there is no config file as in your screen shot.

 

The active theme is my child theme.

I recommend you try using Nicks base theme and see if this resolves your issue. I have a Base theme myself, Viewer, HeadLines and PrettyPhoto and all these child themes have the option which I am able to select.

Hi Danny, my child theme is based on Nicks base theme.  

 

I can select the option and the file pl-config.json in my child theme is updated.  Previously though a file was downloaded via the browser for me to save somewhere - that's the bit that's not happening now.

 

I've disabled all plugins and that has made no difference.

Hi there, if you're seeing the option checked like in danny's screenshot - http://d.pr/i/EVEz uncheck the option to download to child theme to get the file to download. Checking the box will publish it to the child theme only and not give you the download file.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      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?

      What file do I need to add code to in my pl-framework-pagelines child theme to insert script after opening body tag on every page?
      Can you someone provide me with the code also?
