[resolved] [Theme: Fresh and Clean] Prefer .com version - how to install on .org? (6 posts)

    I'm using the Fresh and Clean theme with no modifications. The WordPress.com version of the theme is slightly different than the .org/self-hosted version, in a few ways: for example, it shows the number of comments per post on the front page, and it doesn't duplicate the featured image thumbnail in the body of the post itself.

    I've tried to tweak these in a child version of the theme but I'm missing something, as the changes that I think should make these aren't coming through.

    What I really want to know is, how can I install the .com version of the theme on my self-hosted site? I don't want to change the code, I just want the other version of it.

    If anyone has the css for the .com version, I could try to recreate it in .org - does anyone know how to find that?

  3. How's your SVN and command line skills...?

    You can access WordPress.COM themes via https://wpcom-themes.svn.automattic.com/ and the one your are looking at is at https://wpcom-themes.svn.automattic.com/fresh-and-clean/

    If you do pull that down I suggest you do so in a different directory like so

    $ cd wp-content/themes
    $ svn co https://wpcom-themes.svn.automattic.com/fresh-and-clean/ fresh-and-clean-wpcom

    That will put that theme in a separate directory called fresh-and-clean-wpcom.

    If you do incorporate changes please consider doing so in a child theme (which you're already doing, I'm just being thorough). That'll prevent your changes from being lost when that theme gets updated.

    Ooh, thank you very much! That looks useful.

    Unfortunately I know exactly 0 about SVN and it turns out my command line skills aren't that good as I've been unable to figure out what to tweak to create the changes I'm looking for.

    I guess I'll have to wait for the .org version to be updated while I keep poking at the CSS, which is annoying. Thank you for the link, though - I'll keep trying to figure out how to make it useful.

    Ooh, never mind, I figured out a workaround - I just downloaded all those files, zipped them up and uploaded the file to WP.org as a new theme. It took all of five seconds.

    Thanks again for pointing me to them!

  6. You're welcome. ;)
