Change theme name in source code

Recommended Posts

wendygordon

What is the correct method for changing the name of the the theme that appears in the source code?

right now this is what it says

"href='http://mywebsite.net/wp-content/themes/dms/dms

I would prefer that it says: href='http://campaignology.net/wp-content/themes/myclient/myclient

 

I saw a video that says all i need to do is physically change the name of the theme folder... could it be that simple?

If its DMS2 then renaming the parent folder shouldn't matter, dont do it while the theme is active tho :/

By changing the theme slug you will actually reset a lot of settings as WordPress prefixes certain theme settings with the themes slug. This includes widgets so you have been warned.

You will also void any support by running it in a non standard folder.

thanks so much simon!  I have been duly warned!  It seems like if i am going to do this it would be best done on a brand new install, before I install anything else.  do you agree?

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
