Hello

I added all needed content to my site.

I currently use symbiostock theme. however when I change to the child theme, every data has gone.

So, I would like to ask that can I customize the main symbiostock theme, not the main theme.

Thank you in advance for the answer :)

You can customize the main theme, but every time you upgrade the theme, your custom edits will disappear.


If you put the edits in the child theme, that wont happen.

On the other side of the argument, if you put custom edits in a child theme and that file or function are modified in the parent theme, then the changes won't take effect.

Yep. And since the sy theme keeps changing, it doesnt seem like there is any answer to the problem, except know you are going to have to keep making your modifications over and over. :-(

Hi,

I click to activate the child theme for symbiostock, and it happens the menu is dissappeared and even i tried to add it back it won't appear.


do i need to activate the child theme? is there a way to remove it?

the guide on symbiostockguide step10 about child theme is not available.

I don't know how to make a standard look for my site, like putting images in gallery, showing some thumbnails on first page.

all i got is a 'Hello world' for first post. like a blog post.

how to i make everything like a stock agency?

there is a way (caveat- i haven't had time to test this yet, but plan to) as stated, you don't want any functions in the child that are also in the main theme.  -- BUT there are hooks you can use for processing -- these are empty, stub, functions that you can define to do what you want them to

eg, say the main theme has a hook called XXX, which is just an empty function.  you could then write an XXX  for your child that would always be called, yet would never miss anyt

leo's put these in, but we need more details about their exact placement and function names
