    Hi,
    I build up two websites (ok one, the second one is at work). In both cases i used the Customizr Theme and your childify Plugin. It works well, i like it.
    Now i want to set up a new Website webshop-service.at. I want to use everything from the working Website – so i also use Customizr and your plugin. In functions.php and style.css i put in the adoptions i made at the other website.
    Wordpress shows me that i am using the child theme – all seems to be ok – but the Functionality of the child functions.php and style.css is not taken.
    I have no idea?
    Wordpress: 5.2.2 Customizr:4.1.44
    Any idea? How can i debug the situation?
    best regards from Vienna, Ahmed

    Hi there.
    As far as I can see the child-theme has been created and correctly loaded by WordPress (the child-theme style CSS is loaded on your site see: https://imgur.com/oTupiSV), so the plugin did its job as expected :D.

    What I think it’s that you’re using both functions and styles that are valid for the Customizr classic style but not for the modern style.

    Since Customizr 4.0 the modern style is the default one, here’s the option to switch back to the classical style: https://docs.presscustomizr.com/article/305-where-is-the-customizr-style-switcher

    (you need to activate the parent theme before you can switch back to the classical style then you can activate the child-theme again).

    Hope this helps.

    Best.

    Hi Rocco,
    YES ! This was the issue. Thnaks a lot for this hint!
    Can i ask two more questions:
    1) Customizr in Modern Design -> how is it possible to create a child ?
    2) I want to start helping myself and do not keep asking questions – what do you think is the best way to start with PHP and WordPress programming (I am an IT engineer – but I have not programmed since long time) – introductory manual? WordPress inside Manual?

    Hi there,
    glad you solved.

    1) What do you mean? You can do a child-theme of Customizr, no matter if then you’ll use the modern or the classic style…

    2) I’m sorry but I’m not really able to help you on this, I started developing in WordPress without following a specific path so I’m not able to point you in a specific direction :/

    Best

    Hi
    Ich asked because the child only worked after i switched to classic design (your hint). Youtube said my style.css and function.php belongs to the classic and not to the modern Design.
    When i want to childify the modern Design..what must i do? Whats different to childify the classic Design?

    Hi there,
    what I meant that the CSS rules and the functions in your functions.php might work with the classical Customizr style but not necessarily with the modern style, which uses a different CSS and a lot of different hooks.

    The best way you can do to customize the style is to inspect your page with the browser dev tools in order to find the proper CSS selector to use:
    https://docs.presscustomizr.com/article/272-inspect-your-webpages-in-your-browser-with-the-development-tools

    Also, for the modern style, you can override the template files you can find in the templates folder as well as the models in the core/front/models folder. But this is pretty specific of the Customizr modern theme: there are general rules on how WordPress themes can be “extended” with child-themes, and I suggest you to refer to the WordPress documentation on this subject, then every theme has its own “rules” in addition.

    Best regards.

    Hi Rocco,
    Thanks a lot for these clarifying informations. Now i know what you mean, and i know what i have to do.
    These modern style came to me unexpected, and there was also not much on information belonging this point. I mean the informations does not jump to me…
    So, again, thanks a lot, – everything is clear now.
    best regards
