[resolved] [Theme: Simple Catch] Child Theme didn't work! Had to do modification again! (8 posts)

    I made a child theme for Simple catch so I wouldn't loose the modification I made in the footer.php file and I looked at updates and it said there was a new version of simple catch to install, 2.5.1 so I updated it and the modification I made had gone! I redid it all the same but I would not like this to happen again. Can anyone help?

    We'd need to see a link to your site.

    At the moment, you don't have a child theme active on your site.

    Did you activate it after creating it?

    I'm quite sure I did yes

    Well, I can only address what's on your site right now and it's NOT a child theme.

    Do you have the child theme still visible under themes on your Dashboard?

    Oh you were right I hadn't activated it! Ok I've activated it now and the modification is back
    Thanks!

    Oh good - phew! Glad to hear things like that (vs. OMG, I just lost all the work I'd done).

    Do be sure you are making regular backups of your site :)!
