[Plugin: GYS Themed Categories] Multiple theme options possible?
Love GYS! Nice plugin, Using it on a Multisite: http://www.cad-helpdesk.de. Switiching to different themes depending on castegories works great. My problem: i tried to even use 2011 theme options in different themes.
EG: main theme is 2011. Theme in http://www.cad-helpdesk.de/cad-cloud-de is a custom theme based on 2011. I changed all the necessary theme names in functions.php to get the custom theme options saved under the new individual theme options tables.
Unfortunately: options are always taken from the main theme activated. Any idea?
I have no idea! It sounds like you are doing more complicated things than I’ve had to do with this plugin. I’ve tried activating the theme I want to modify, setting options in the admin UI, then going back and activating the main theme.
You are using a child theme of TwentyEleven or a copy of it?
It also looks like you are getting a fatal error in that category, which makes me wonder if you upgraded to 3.4. I have not tested this plugin in 3.4 yet. Feel free to keep adding anything you figure out to this thread.
thanks for the quick reply luke! yeah, love complicated things, good for making things easier and learning more 🙂
my custom theme is a completely individual copy of 2011. example: i activate 2011 as standard theme, cad cloud theme in gys for cad cloud -> no header image as defined in 2011 options, in both main theme for start page and gys themed categories for cad-cloud.
my problem: i did activate cad cloud theme first, set a different header image in options. as long as this theme is activated, this works fine in both start and gys themed category cadcloud. as soon as i switch back to 2011, it doesn’t work anymore. start and cadcloud no image.
don’t worry about the error on the sidebar. was just a little mistake…
i think it might be more related a problem of that kind: my theme somehow still reads the same 2011 theme options rather than reading the new fields/tables set up in functions.php…
wp version is 3.3.2
update: the cad cloud picture you see right now is a temporary static solution, not from theme options.
So version 3.4 of WordPress allows you to “customize” themes prior to activating them. I wonder if it is worth upgrading to try that feature out on the non-active themes? My guess would be you will see the same results, as this appears to be more of a database/namespace issues for your theme options. Not exactly sure how to resolve that…
You could also try making a child theme instead of a copy of TwentyEleven.
