  • Thanks for your reply. Nope, no changes in our theme, a custom theme from GabFire. The site is
    For years our editor defaulted to Arial which is our choice with our theme.Perhaps this was set by the theme. I have reset every file I can find to show Arial as the default, but with no success.
    After the previous update, the default became Georgia.(in my system)
    Then, after this most recent update, the default has become Ralway. I’ve tried several plug-ins that claim to change the default font but they haven’t worked.
    Even if it is imposed by my theme, it seems like a reasonable request of WordPress that we are allowed to change this setting in our own system.

    Wow! thanks!
    I’m off the drill down into my theme code.

    Thanks David,
    I had down-loaded the .zip but was hesitant to strike out on my own.
    Below is my response to the plug-in author.
    Hinaloe, I believe the plug-in functioned correctly. The problem, I suspect, is in the coding of the theme. I am online with them for more help/
    The issue arose after I installed an SSL certificate to make my site more secure.
    When a user logs on using http:// then the slider works as intended. When https:// is used for log-on then the slider quits working.
    After posting the request for a way to undo, I recalled I am doing daily back-ups.
    I was able to, in effect, remove your plug-in by restoring to an earlier time before its installation.
    Yes, I posted to another plug-in for support. I had downloaded both and was trying each. It didn’t occur to me that inactivating the plug-ins would not reverse the action.
    I am online with the theme creators, Gabfire (very fine themes!) to correct the issue.
    After the restore (removing your plug-in) the site is no longer forced to log on as https://. Therefore to the user’s eye it is as before.
    Test this for yourself. The site is
    sanantonioteaparty.us
    Set your browser for both standard and then secure to see what happens.
    Forgive me for not making the issue more clear yesterday.
    BTW, I strongly recommend UpDraftPlus for back-ups. This was almost a one-click solution (work-around).
    Thanks David, your back-up pulled my bacon out of the fire.

    I like (ed) StarBox, but like others I am unable to find any support. With the latest version of WP the StarBox is broken. Too bad.

    Pardon the omission, website is:

    Zulfikar,
    Thanks for your response.
    I chose Option 2, copied content.php from twentyfourteen into twentyfourteen-child
    this is the result, displayed in the content section of the site:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ELSE in /home/content/g/r/a/granpasmurf/html/satp-boilingpoint/wp-content/themes/twentyfourteen-child/content.php on line 51

    can you advise further?

    WPyogi,
    Yea!
    I have an old Crimson Editor that I used. I don’t understand what made the difference. I cut/paste the same code and uploaded it and now I have grid!
    Thanks for your help and patience.
    I am working on this site before applying the theme to our primary site. sanantonioteaparty
    I am marking this thread as resolved.
    I am however moving on to other issues as I modify this theme to our use. I expect to have to post again.

    Sure thing. But I have run out of time for today, I will post again tomorrow morning with the results of that project.
    Again, thanks for your help and patience.

    I am using HostGator for this site, Using cPanel and the code editor provided I first created new folder, ‘…-child’ then created a new file ‘style.css’ then with the code editor provided I did cut/paste from the Codex page into the file ‘style.css’, then I changed my name as author. (presumptive, no?)

    Earlier I reactived the ‘stock’ twentyfourteen theme. This is the header for the style.css now active.

    WPyogi,
    thanks for your patience.
    using your image and information from
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
    I started over. Deleted old child theme and the plug-in I had used to get started.
    I created the directory and the style.css using your post from above but now my themes page in WP is telling me:

    Broken Themes

    The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.
    Name Description
    Twenty Fourteen/twentyfourteen-child-01 Template is missing.

    where do I go from here?
