Theme Name Change

Recommended Posts

MissT

Hi there,

 

I need to change the name of a theme on a live site but am not sure of the best way to do this - can you please advise?

 

I have tried copying the theme and changing the name and then switching so that the new theme is then active but it somehow seems to revert back to an older version of the site - ie. before some recent updates were made.  Then if I switch back to the original theme the wrong version of the site is still there - it doesn't go back to how it was before.

 

Is it something to do with the theme settings? Do I need to ensure I save every page template and site settings in the current theme before copying it?

 

Many thanks in advance :)

HI,

 

I apologise, but I am not quite sure what you mean by theme name change. You can not change any of our theme names via either the directory name or style.css name, as this will most likely break the theme.

Hi, sorry Danny, in my haste I forgot to mention it's a child theme not the DMS theme itself.

 

Many thanks.

I would just create a new child theme with the new name.

That is what I did Danny!

 

I'm wondering if its the DMS config file that isn't up to date perhaps - to clarify when you activate a new theme do you always have to manually click the Load Child Theme Config button to upload the settings?

Not sure if the config file was corrupt or just not up to date but resaved it and tried again and it worked ok this time :)

      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!
