Tagged: custom child theme
I'm customizing a child theme, and I'm wondering if I should change the CHILD_THEME_NAME reference in the functions.php file to my custom name or will this break things? I'm assuming that if I'm customizing that I should rename all of these sorts of references so that there are no conflicts.
This little guide might help you:
Thanks Susan for that link.
I have a slightly different "best practice" question: Should I rename my customized child themes? What are the pros and cons of doing so?
I think you should rename a customized child theme:
Pros - if you want to use the base child theme again to customize to another child theme, you're not going to mess up all the work you put into customizing the theme. (It's easier to re-use the same theme again and again if you rename them).
If the theme is updated, and you don't think about it, and update the original child theme, you will lose all your changes.
Cons - I can't really think of one...
thanks for that Susan......I have been wandering the same thing
