Duplicate Theme
[resolved] Duplicated theme getting WP update (2 posts)

    I came across a possible issue for your users. When a theme is duplicated, it keeps the original name. I duplicated the Responsive theme and forgot to rename it to something different (i think).

    So, i noticed today that Responsive had an update and both themes, the parent and child themes were asking for an update. After i changed the child theme's name, the update request disappeared.

    Maybe there should be a failsafe of sorts if the name is the same? Maybe there is already?

    I would hate to accidentally update a child theme!

    Hi Indieblitz,

    Thanks for posting your issues and solution to the support forum. Having a duplicate or blank name in the 'New Theme Name:' field should cause an error. So the next update will have that in place.
    Thanks for using Duplicate Theme!
