Opulus Sombre
Child theme (5 posts)

    I have been using the opulus-sombre theme for a month or so. During that time I have customized settings using the "Theme Options" page. Things are looking good.

    I have now created a child theme and activated it. When I do that I lose all of the changes I've made since I started using the theme. When I go back and activate the o-s theme I get them all back.

    I am new to WordPress and am curious where all of these settings are being saved when I use the "Opulus-Sombre Theme Options" page. Is there a way I can get all of my previous changes incorporated into my child theme?

    Are you sure you made child theme correctly? There is a plugin which allows you to create child theme for your themes easily with one click, please try making a child them using this plugin and see if the problem persists.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I used the Orbisius plugin but I get the same result. None of the formatting gets brought over to my child theme.

    I also noticed that when using the child theme, that the Theme Options page has no formatting like it does when I use the parent theme. This theme provides a nice interface for making changes to the theme settings but this is all lost when using the child theme. It seems as if the style settings are not saved in style.css but somewhere else.

    Any other ideas? Thanks!

    Download Converter, does your admin UI rely on css/files e.g. YOUR_THEME_DIR/admin ? because Orbisius Child Theme Creator doesn't yet copy any other than style, footer, readme and a few more files.

    Hi orbisius, I think you are were asking this question to me. I don't see an admin folder in the opulus-sombre folder, so I guess the answer is no. Thanks.
