Basic Child Theme

Recommended Posts

dawsonbarber

I want to install a basic child theme on a site I'm switching from iBlogPro6 to PL5 and want to make sure I've got the minimum covered:

  • screenshot.png
  • style.css
  • functions.php

That's it, isn't it?

you dont even need that much ;)

Just a style.css with something like this:

/*
  Theme Name: Example
  Description: Minimal
  Version: 0.1
  Template: pl-framework
*/

The pagelines.com child theme is easily downloadable via Extend. Start with that

      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?
