reusing a child theme

Recommended Posts



I built a site for a client on dms2 and built a child theme for that client.  It turns out that I now have another client that really likes that site and wants the same theme and just wants to put in new images.  However, I also want to start using platform 5 on the new site. Can I use this child theme now? How can I use that on a new site?

do I follow these steps:

1. export wordpress using wordpress importer

2. export to child theme in settings

3. export json files

Then install wordpress on new client build, install platform 5 plugin....If we want to change the theme can I just change the theme name in my child theme that it is referencing or do I need to keep it referencing DMS?  Zip the changed child theme files referencing the theme and then upload it?  If I change the name of the child theme to update it with the new client name before I zip it will it still function?  


Any guidance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.  I am hoping this is going to be quick and easy.  Thanks.

      Hello. I have a big problem, platform 5, the save changes button does not work. All the time, "spins" and can not save modifications. There was information about the account refresh or re-login (due to the token), everything has been done, still saving does not work properly. Help.
      I got an answer on facebook that you have to put the site from scratch, I have a dozen or so - it's some tragedy. So ask for help !!!
      Regards, Kedark

      Here's what I see when I try to download Platform 5:

      Is Platform 5 still being supported?  Most of the comments in this forum look a year old or older.
