[resolved] Changing the Theme's name (4 posts)

    Hello!

    I'll use the Andreas-08-3-columns-ver-05 theme at http://www.swed.info (not ready yeat) and since I will be linking some images (banners) from the theme's Image folder I wonder if I can change the theme's name to something shorter. Otherwise they would be too long.... or is there a better way to link an image to the sidebar without the whole path.

    Best regards
    Erico

    Before uploading the theme to your wp-content/themes/ directory.. on your hard drive, you could change the theme's folder name, to say, this maybe: A08-3col

    Then, in the style.css header section, change this for example only:

    /*

    Theme Name: AO8-3col

    Theme URI: http:// url to the theme's original place.org

    Description: Quick short version of it..

    Version: 05

    */

    Of course, that's just an example lol.. But, do those changes BEFORE you upload the theme ok.. =) I hope this helps a little bit...
