Support » Theme: Pinboard » Child Theme

  • Hey guys,

    Just read through the posts about it and i got it working, active and all

    However the website lost all the menus, etc and was just normal text.
    I tried with

    */
    @import url(“../pinboard/style.css”);

    @charset “utf-8”;
    /*

    being infront and after it

    */
    @charset “utf-8”;
    /*
    @import url(“../pinboard/style.css”);

    not sure what else to do.

    if i dont update the template, will that be fine and i will never loose any settings?

    This is what should be in the new style.css file:

    /*
    Theme Name: Your name - whatever you want
    Description: My child theme
    Author: Your name here
    Template: pinboard
    */
    
    @import url("../pinboard/style.css");

    Also note that theme options and settings don’t carry over to a child theme so you will need to redo those.

    ok

    say if i just wanted to build a basic website at first and just use the template, is there any need for child theme in this instance? i recognise i might need it later down the track though

    If you only want to make changes through theme options and settings ,then you will be fine. You could also use a Custom CSS plugin (jetpack for example) so that you can make CSS changes — that gives you a lot more flexibility.

    thanks for the input.

    im a newbie, trying to save some money to make my own website. just whenever i think i get somewhere i get stuck lol

    too much reading too. might as well just make it from scratch eventually
