Support » Theme: Pictorico » child theme editing footer.php

  • Resolved srnb


    I created a child theme folder called pictorico-child under themes folder. I copied the footer.php and edited it such that the text below the page regarding the theme would be invisible. I just erased the text in fact but it didn’t work. Am I missing sth regarding creating a child theme?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Hi there,

    I’m still seeing Pictorico (rather than a child theme) active on

    What happens when you activate the child theme on that site? Does it appear exactly the same as it does now?

    Please also double check the code in your child theme’s functions.php file against the code provided here:

    Hi Siobhan,
    I got the child theme up, I can see the effect of the child footer file, i worked 🙂 I created a child stylesheet with the additional css, pictorico had allowed me add via the parent theme interface. I believe the child theme is the copy of the parent from the moment I created the child, meaning until then it should have all the effects of the parent. Somehow the header images (the theme allowed me put via its menu) seem to be missing. Do you have any idea why? I leave it unassigned so you can see what I mean. What else isn’t in effect I wonder…

    Hi @imonlyhappywhenitravel,

    Is it the slider from the top of the front page that’s missing?

    You’re right that the theme’s design should remain intact when you activate a child theme, with only the specific parts you customise changing.

    If that isn’t the case then the child theme may not be pulling in all of the needed files from the parent. Can you confirm that you’ve copied/pasted the codeas it appears in the child theme documentation?

    In addition, please also try disabling your plugins one by one to see if any are causing a conflict here.

    Yes,I did it accordingly. And I also had tried disabling the plugins for the awesomefont issue. I will reassign the pictures to the header, hoping there’s nothing else.

    I hope re-assigning the header images works well! I’m not sure why they’d have disappeared after you created a child theme, but do let me know if extra questions come up.
