If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I’m trying to create a child theme for the choices theme. I followed all steps like described here http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
But when I view the live preview, all my theme options are somehow canceled. I get the standard blue layout. Is this normal behaviour? I’d like to adjust some of the template files, but I don’t want to lose all settings in the Theme Options.
Thanks for your help.
Theme options are tied to the theme name with wordpress. So when you change from “choices” to “choices-child” or any other name besides choices all of the theme specific settings are pulled from the database entry for the new theme name.
Hi, I currently am in the process of developing the theme with Choices. I want to create a child theme before I update to 1.9. What is the best way to do this? I imagine I would have to copy some files from Choices Parent theme over to the Child theme? Any detailed instructions you can point me to would be great, thanks! Evan
