Support » Themes and Templates » Changing the Theme’s name

  • Resolved ollerwe



    I’ll use the Andreas-08-3-columns-ver-05 theme at (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

  • 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

    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…


    Thank you, spencerp!

    It seems to be working fine now.

    You’re welcome. =) 😉 I figured I’d share that with ya, I do it *all* the time lol. =)
