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.

      Unable to attach an image that's already been uploaded.
      When attempting to upload one from scratch, it gives me the error seen in the screenshot. As you can see by the Chrome Inspector, I receive a 400 error.

      Ik like to use the following Plug-in in my DMS Theme, but can' get it to work. My DMS Editor is not loading anymore if I paste this short code in a page, textbox or mediabox: [wpdatatable id=1]
      Plug-in: WPDataTables Plug-in 
      Shortcode:  [wpdatatable id=1]

      Anyone experience with this plug-in and DMS.

      Hello, I want to create a form where a visitor can submit content/post from the front end. I did something very similar some years back using wp-types, CRED form with pagelines DMS. When i try to set this up in Platform 5, the CRED form generates but doesn't show. I get a blank page. In the browser's console window, i get the error: Uncaught Error: You cannot apply bindings multiple times to the same element.
      When i deactivate the PL plugin and change the theme, the form appears.
      I'm using Wordpress 4.8.2 and PL 5.1.7

      I recently downloaded the latest DMS2 update. Since the download, I lost front end ability to update. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      Hi, I'm using a series of Loops sections on our PL5 site (insights.adaptiva.com), and on one section, I'd ideally like the loops to link to external URLs that are defined in the post in WordPress. Is that possible?
