I’ve read a few articles on how two change my Genesis child theme name, but I’m still a little confused.
In the following code from my Executive child theme functions.php page, what exactly needs to be edited to rename the theme?
/** Start the engine */
require_once( get_template_directory() . ‘/lib/init.php’ );
load_child_theme_textdomain( ‘executive’, apply_filters( ‘child_theme_textdomain’, get_stylesheet_directory() . ‘/languages’, ‘executive’ ) );
/** Child theme (do not remove) */
define( ‘CHILD_THEME_NAME’, __( ‘Executive Theme’, ‘executive’ ) );
define( ‘CHILD_THEME_URL’, ‘http://www.studiopress.com/themes/executive’ );
/** Add Viewport meta tag for mobile browsers */
I use these instructions: http://www.wpsyntax.com/wordpress/how-to-rename-genesis-child-theme
/** Child theme (do not remove) */ define( ‘CHILD_THEME_NAME’, __( ‘Executive Theme’, ‘executive’ ) );
So, in the example you provided, you would replace ‘Executive Theme’ with the name of your child theme.
Those are the instructions I found too.
If I also change the name of the child theme directory, would I need to replace the ‘executive’ reference as well? If so, do you know of any other directory references that would require changing?
Thanks again for your help.
I’ve changed a child theme name using the tutorial I linked to, but I didn’t bother changing references to the original child theme name in any other places.
Susan: If we rename the child theme via tutorial above, say from Agency to MyNewAgency, will we still get update notifications in WP when SP brings out a new version of Agency?
