Support » Fixing WordPress » child theme preview and page preview in wordpress not the same

  • So I did the child theme as recommended. Named it theme-child (where theme is the parent theme name). When I customize it looks like I want it to, so far. When I am in wordpress dashboard and do page preview it has none of my modifications I did in the customize screen of my child theme. When I publish it… same thing. None of my menu changes appear it shows only the two pages published in the top menu. And not in the correct order for my customizations.

    I created functions.php like the wordpress codex stated.

    Maybe I am missing something? Can anyone tell me “exactly” how to set this up correctly? I am really new to this.

    Please stop posting… It’s not another topic. You’re on the 3rd page of the original. I explained the policy a few messages ago.

    Sorry. I see that now. If I were able to delete I would have. Truly apologize.

    But nowhere in the policy does it support your decision/statements, that I have found. Can you please quote the policy you are referring to? Or exact link to support your statements of the policy. Thank you, for your assistance.

    Thank you. However, it could end up being one of those. Could you assist please? Again, I am not asking the post be deleted. Just the website link. It does not affect the integrity of the post. There is absolutely no reason to insist the link be in the post.

    You assumed google. I am the author of the post. I understand locking a post to later edits. However, again, there is no reason to insist the link be in the post. I am forwarding these responses to the appropriate personnel of the website in question.

    Thank you, for your assistance.

    While we understand your concern, the policy exists because it’s unmaintainable on a practical stance to process every single one of these requests. You see it as one person, we see it as hundreds who don’t read the guidelines or FAQ and don’t think about the reality of putting up a link in a public place.

    I’m sorry, but we will not remove the link. That’s why there’s a field to enter in your URL on the first post you made. We’re working on making it a field you can use on subsequent posts, to handle this type of issue better.
