Support » Plugin: Storefront Visual Hook Guide » Does not work with my Strorefont child theme

  • Resolved klewis

    I have WordPress 5.2.1 installed.
    I am running EasyPHP server with PHP version 7.1.3
    I am running WooCommerce version 3.6.4
    I have Storefront version 2.5.0 installed and active.
    I have the Storefront Visual Hook Guide version 2.0 installed.

    This plugin works good with my parent Storefront theme. But when I attempt to switch to my newly created child theme, I get the following message:

    “Storefront Visual Hook Guide plugin has been disabled. You need to activate the Storefront theme or a Storefront child theme for this plugin to work.”

    -My child theme directory is labeled as “storefront-child”, and only has a blank functions.php file and style.css file. Here is the info in my style.css file for my child theme:

    /*!
    Theme Name: NFC storefront
    Theme URI: http://woo.shop02
    Template: Storefront
    Author: klewis
    Author URI: https://github.com/blachawk
    Description: The NFC Storefront is the perfect theme for selling products online. This platform will include paintings, photos, furniture and more as requested.

    */

    My child theme works fine without this plugin installed. But I would like to use your plugin for hook purposes.

    Why is it giving me this notification in wp-admin, when I attempt to use my storefront child theme?

    Thank you for all the info given, I found the problem and I’m fixing it today in version 2.0.1

    Meanwhile let you know that the “template” name is case sensitive.

    You wrote in your style.css:

    Template: Storefront

    And it should be:

    Template: storefront

    But nevertheless I’ll be fixing it in the plugin.

    Thank you again for pointing it out!!!

    Sweet! Thanks for helping me realize my issue!
