Support » Themes and Templates » Scherzo child themes won't register functions.php scripts

  • Hi there,

    I’ve created a theme called Scherzo.

    I’m planning to release a new version but one thing is holding me up.

    I’ve created a responsive design that targets desktop browsers with @media CSS queries. As IE doesn’t understand @media queries I use some javascript to get IE to do my bidding.

    The js is stored in a folder entitled js in the theme folder. It works just fine with the Scherzo theme but, for some reason, child themes don’t seem to load it.

    This is how I register and enqueue the js in Scherzo’s functions.php:

    if ( !function_exists( 'scherzo_scripts' ) ) :
    	function scherzo_scripts() {
    	    if (!is_admin()) {
    		wp_register_script( 'html5shiv', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/html5.js');
    		wp_register_script( 'css3mediaqueries', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/css3-mediaqueries.js');
    	add_action('init', 'scherzo_scripts');

    My understanding of child themes is that they simply inherit the parent theme’s functions.php functions. But this doesn’t seem to be the case. For examples, see:

    A site running Scherzo
    A site running a child theme of Scherzo (the only change is the link colours — no layout changes or anything else).

    If you load both sites in IE you’ll see the child theme isn’t obeying @media queries — it’s just using the one column CSS.
