Learn how to customise a WordPress children's theme
As soon as you have your WordPress theme ready, you can start customizing its theme and config, knowing that future theme updates will not override these preferences. This can be done through your cPanel File Manager: Sign in to your HostPapa Dashboard, click on cPanel and then on your Domainlink.
In the Files section, click the Files Manager symbol. And the easiest way to change the look of your child's theme is to use the Cascading style sheet (CSS). Every sub-theme has a filename named Style. that saves the set of settings that determine how your site will look. For this example, we create a subordinate theme using the Twenty Seventeen WordPress theme.
The WordPress theme folders (wp-content/themes) store the subordinate theme data in a special subfolder, the so-called Twentyseventeen-Child. Then open the directory and edit the Styles. tss script then click the Use the cPanel File Manager (via the Edit button) or use an FTP program to open the panel by downloading the panel with an FTP program and then opening it in a text editing application such as Notepad or Text Edit.
Type in the necessary rules for customizing the website to your needs and store the document. Note: If you used an FTP program to load the files before you started to edit them, don't forgo uploading the changed stylesheet to your FTP site. If you are satisfied with a ruled, just copy it and paste it into the stylesheet of your designs.
One more great thing about sub-topics is that overwriting the higher-level setting for the higher-level theme is quite easy. Wordprocesses your children's topic to see if the directory contains a filename that matches a filename with the same name in the top-level topic directory. Otherwise, the subordinate topic is used.
Otherwise, WordPress uses the equivalents of the higher-level theme. So to make changes to superordinate theme filenames like header.php or content.php, just copy the superordinate theme filename to the appropriate place in your children's theme. In a text editing application, open the document and make the desired changes.
WordPress will prioritize subordinate topic folders via their corresponding counterparts in the superordinate topic folders, but you can also place independent theme folders - such as templates that control the way your headers, footers, page layouts, and sidebars are structured - in the subordinate topic. Those directories are only available in the subfolder Topics, but will be included in the website show.
Again, you should begin with elementary layouts from your higher-level design - e.g. page.php, header.php and copy them to your lower-level theme folders. Modify the file so that it calls extra user-defined file of your choosing when loading (e.g. one named header-custom.php). Make the new user-defined filenames in a text editors and add your own layouts.
Design the adjustments with the CSS rule and then store the data in your sub-theme. For more information about user-defined templates, see the WordPress Codex. During the creation of the subordinate design, we added a tailor-made function in addition to the special stylesheet function (style.css). This is a phone book function to create a theme.
When you take a look at the main theme's functionality. pdf files, you will probably find that they are full of php coding that defined the theme's functionality. If you use a sub theme, WordPress first downloads the functionality of the sub theme. The phone book and any functionality that is contained in the corresponding sub theme will load in additional to the super functionality.
That means that you can edit the sub-topic's functionality. This is a directory containing a phone book, as well as extra functionality, widgets, and other supplements. You can learn more about the WordPress functionalities in Codex.
