[resolved] admin options (3 posts)

    Site:
    the site
    Case:
    I have options set up in the admin panel of a child theme allowing the user to change background colors. Those colors are in one of 3 skin.css files that should get called based on user input.

    Problem:
    the skin.css file is not being recognized, as I can see using developer tool. According to the developer tool, the path looks something like this: theme_folder/wp-content/themes/skins//skins.css ( error 404).
    In-between the double slashes (above) is where the variable ($my_path_color_variant) should be yielding the appropriate skin.css file.

    I have this working in a child theme of Thematic. However, even though the options panel gets loaded and is functional (in current child theme of path), the skin.css file isn't loading. I'm pretty sure it's a global variable in the options.php file that I'm doing something wrong with; possibly something with the theme name being different (which I've changed respectively.

    <?php
    
    // Set some theme specific variables for the options panel
    $childthemename = "my-path Theme";
    $childshortname = "mt08";
    $childoptions = array();
    
    function childtheme_options() {
      global $childthemename, $childshortname, $childoptions;
    
      // Create array to store the Categories to be used in the drop-down select box
      $categories_obj = get_categories('hide_empty=0');
      $categories = array();
      foreach ($categories_obj as $cat) {
        $categories[$cat->cat_ID] = $cat->cat_name;
      }
    
       // the color variants array
      $color_variants = array(
        "blue" => "blue",
        "red" => "red",
        "steel" => "steel"
      );

    It was an array parameter 'id' of a global variable not matching up in get_bloginfo stylesheet_directory relative path.
