Great, and I don't need to rename the Stylesheet css file, right?

Now it's all done and everything seems to be working perfectly. I finally have a child theme. Hopefully it will stay this way through all future updates.

Thanks for walking me through it. 🙂

Glad to help and get you sorted out. I didn't realise you had not done this a long time back

Had I realized how incredibly easy it was, I definitely would have.

Just:

    1. Rename the folder from ;'tacked-child;' to whatever you prefer
    1. Open the spTheme.txt file in the newly renamed child folder and set the title (1st entry) to the name you have chosen. Remember this is case sensitive.
    1. Go to the forum admin > themes > and select the newly created child theme

and then you should be fine.

  

I can get the child themes to work but the coding is no longer working for me. I need help with what php file should be added and where. Or perhaps the changes can be made on the Simple Press backend?

When choosing the link on the Theme Editor called "stacked-child.css" I get a blank page.

I really have no idea how to edit this theme and was really looking to hire someone to help me. Is there anyone that you guys can recommend for the job. Someone who works on these themes to begin with.

Thanks

Hi:

This has been fixed and will be available in the next version of Simple:Press.  You can find the fix here if you're interested: https://github.com/Simple-Pres.....e0c73d81f6

Thanks.

Yes I noticed. I would probably have been able to fix the theme if it was done earlier without paying for the horizontal option. 🙂

It makes way more sense now when I go to the editor.

Actually, you don't need that to edit those files.  All the files are available via FTP - that function is just a convenience thing.  The files are fully open-sourced so editing them via FTP and your favorite editor is actually faster and better since your editor will likely color-code things for you.
