reusing a child theme

Recommended Posts

vanessabt

Hi,

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.

      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.

      I wanted to share something I'm dealing with on my PageLines 5 website. The website is culturedfoodlife.com. I've seen this issue a few times, but it's always fixed itself without me really doing much, so I don't know how to troubleshoot. It'll start out with my page loading all wonky, due to scripts and stylesheets missing. I look at the page source, and towards the top, I see this line:
      <link rel='dns-prefetch' href='//www.group-ib.ru' />
      I have no idea what that website is, or why it's loading that line of code, and then further down, I see it again as the domain that tries to load all of my pagelines section style scripts:
      <link rel='stylesheet' id='pl-pins-css' href='https://www.group-ib.ru/…/plugins/pl-section-pins/style.css…' type='text/css' media='screen' />
      <script type='text/javascript' src='https://www.group-ib.ru/…/pl-sect…/script.infinitescroll.js…'></script>
      <script type='text/javascript' src='https://www.group-ib.ru/…/plugi…/pl-section-pins/isotope.js…'></script>
      <script type='text/javascript' src='https://www.group-ib.ru/wp-conte…/…/pl-section-pins/pins.js…'></script>
      Here's a screenshot: https://www.screencast.com/t/Nqk9YglUf
      So I get that this is why it's not displaying correctly on the front end, because these style scripts don't exist on group-ib.ru, and I have no idea why it's inserting group-ib.ru instead of my domain culturedfoodlife.com.It makes me think I'm being hacked. This seems to be affecting the styles and scripts of pagelines sections. Other plugins on my site load their scripts with the correct domain name.
       
      When I've seen this in the page, it usually fixes itself after a few minutes, but in this last case, it didn't fix itself until I started disabling plugins. I was trying to see if I could go through each plugin one by one to see if I could fine out anything. I disabled everything but all my pagelines plugins/sections, and the issue went away. Then when I re-enabled everything, the issue was still gone. So now I'm clueless as how to keep testing this. Any suggestions?
      The fact that disabling every plugin EXCEPT the pagelines plugins kind of make me think that the issue isn't with pagelines, but then again when the issue occurs, why does it only affect pagelines sections? Andrew Powers I could use some insight. 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.
