Support » Themes and Templates » Problem Editing Duplicate Theme Details

  • Hi,

    In order to experiment with the modification of a theme, I have duplicated one of the existing themes, renamed it, and uploaded it to the wp-content/themes/ directory.

    I am able to edit the CSS file and add new images to this new theme.

    The problem is, I am having trouble getting the new theme to display correctly in the Dashboard. If I edit the comment headers in the style.css file, the details disappear from the “Manage Themes” page in the Dashboard. I am attempting to follow the instructions contained in this article:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development

    Am I missing something? Do I need to configure another file so the duplicate will be recognized?

    Thanks,
    John

    No. As long as:

    – the amended theme is named differently in style.css
    – all theme files are within an unique folder in wp-content/themes (avoid spaces and hyphens, if you can
    – the theme folder includes a screenshot.png file (I often just use a blank image when developing)

    Check the format for the style.css header section.
