    Thanks for sharing your hard work on Tiny Forge! This may have already been discussed somewhere else though when installing the tiny forge child theme included in the package, I had to remove the hyphen in tiny-forge parent theme folder name for the child to recognize it as its parent in order to install it properly. Thanks again!

    Thank you, David, that's a BIG one!

    I know what is the issue. First I was naming folder tinyforge (the same as theme name space or Text Domain), but later I noticed that when I download the zip from WP.org, it is packed in tiny-forge folder... most likely WP automatically repacks the files and saves under folder that is named same as theme slug in the WP.org repository.

    So... I think it would be nice to have same naming all over the theme. I'll see perhaps admins can change the slug here. Otherwise I will change name space to tiny-forge everywhere, to be consistent.

    David, I realized that better method is not to change the folder name of parent theme (leave it tiny-forge), but open the style.css of a child theme and right at the top change the line:

    Template: tinyforge


    Template: tiny-forge

    This way you'll be safe in the future, because after talking to WP guys, I have to leave folder name as it is: tiny-forge

    In the next version I will correct that line in child theme example.

    Big thanks for reporting this issue!
