  • Hello,

    How can I change the Theme name so it would show like this in site’s source code: /wp-content/themes/MYCHOICE/style.css and how to avoid conflicts with updates, etc?

    Thanks you

  • What theme are you currently using?

    I am planning to use one of the Premium WP Themes.

    You would need to rename the theme’s folder and it’s name in style.css.

    Thanks for the help 🙂
    BTW, I am fairly new to WordPress and wondering if renaming the theme is something that is commonly done? Could it create some issues with the theme updates and plugins in the future?

    I’ve had it happen to me that just by renaming the theme all of the javascript and css in the theme stopped working because it was hard-linked, not using bloginfo().

    So, yes. All kinds of things can go wrong.

    You can hack it a bit, but updating might erase all of your hard work.

    Good to know, thanks so much!!

    Just create a child theme and name it whatever you want.
