I am using the newest version of WordPress and the newest version of WooCoomerce. I am also using the Rustik theme – kinda. I followed the instructions on wordpress.org on how to create and modify child themes. So I have a child-theme named Rustik-child.
I know you don’t support other themes, but this is a place that will have access to people that may know the answer to my question about using child themes with woocommerce. So please do not close this message.
I am wondering if when using child themes, should I copy everything over from the parent theme that is not a css file? Like I have noticed that whenever I use the Rustik theme, EVERYTHING works!!! haha But, when I change to the Rustik-child theme, my customers do not get ANY order status emails. They get a new-user registration email (if they are a new user), but thats it.
So, I looked in the woocommerce directory under the Rustik theme directory and there is an emails folder with all the different email php files in it. When I look in the woocommerce directory under the Rustik-child theme directory, there is an emails folder with ONLY the new user registration php file located in it. So I copied the entire rustik/woocommerce/emails folder to the rustik-child/woocommerce/emails folder in hopes that this would let the Rustik-child theme handle ALL customer emails. But, it didn’t…
Matter of fact, somehow all those email files that I copied over to the rustik-chil/woocommerce/emails folder were deleted somehow (not me). Guess which one wasn’t deleted? Yep, the new user registration php file. Which is the only email a new user gets when using the Rustik-Child theme.
Can I move the entire woocommerce directory under the Rustik themes directory over to the rustik-child theme directory? Whats the best way to make woocommerce work with a child theme? Ideas?
Thanks, very much!!!
