  • Resolved Bennn


    Thanks for the beautiful storefront theme, I would like to use it and want to know if you have released any child theme, if not I would like to be assisted in the storefront child theme as I am a newbie.
    I will greatly appreciate your help.

    Waiting for your response.

    Thank you.

  • Hi Bennn,

    Sure thing. 🙂

    The WordPress Codex actually has a great tutorial on how to develop a child theme.

    I’d recommend giving this a read and letting us know, here, if you have follow-up questions. 🙂

    Here is a very basic child theme for you StoreFront Starter Child Theme

    Hi Stuart,
    Thank you so much. I used the code below in the child theme functions php but got this error message.

    This is the uploaded child theme, I wanted to remove the footer credit and used this code on the forum:

    * storefront child theme functions.php file.
    * @package storefront-child

    add_action( ‘wp_enqueue_scripts’, ‘enqueue_parent_theme_style’ );
    function enqueue_parent_theme_style() {
    wp_enqueue_style( ‘parent-style’, get_template_directory_uri().’/style.css’ );

    /* Add any custom PHP below this line of text */

    add_action( ‘init’, ‘custom_remove_footer_credit’, 10 );

    function custom_remove_footer_credit () {
    remove_action( ‘storefront_footer’, ‘storefront_credit’, 20 );
    add_action( ‘storefront_footer’, ‘custom_storefront_credit’, 20 );

    function custom_storefront_credit() {
    <div class=”site-info”>
    © <?php echo get_bloginfo( ‘name’ ) . ‘ ‘ . get_the_date( ‘Y’ ); ?>
    </div><!– .site-info –>

    This is the error message:
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected end of file in /home4/b2palace/public_html/ on line 28

    What could have caused this and How do I remove error please.

    Thank you.

    Hi Bennn,

    These kinds of errors (“unexpected end of file”) occur when the file hasn’t fully uploaded via FTP.

    I’d advise re-uploading the “functions.php” file for the child theme and seeing if that resolves the error.

    Yes thank you so much, this has been resolved and i have started working on site again. Thanks all for supporting.
