Theme Override Not Working
I tried following the steps to setup the override theme but it seems like any changes I do to the override theme the changes don't take place.
I copied the full classic theme files and put it within the child theme I have currently activated ( the child theme comes with runway framework).
I then proceeded to make a few changes to the colors.css file within the /wp-content/themes/liftoff/wpforo path. But was not able to see the changes. I added those css changes to the custom css section of wpforo and it worked.
I have a lot more stuff to do within the php layout to the theme style so I will defiantly need access to the theme files and make my adjustments. I just want to know why my changes are not taking effect so I can work on it.
P.S below are the things I've already tried
- Clean WP install with just wpforo and default wp theme
- Copying the wpforo folder to the framework theme folder as well as the child theme folder
- Disabling plugins to see if there was any conflict ( only plugins installed are visual composer and wpforo)
Please note. The copy of wpForo template files is only designed for PHP files. It doesn't support CSS yet. And as far as I know if you have a child theme it should be copied to the child theme folder. Please don't do a full copy of classic theme just transfer files you want to change.
Menus are manageable in dashboard. Yous should not remove it from template files. please read wpForo documentation before changing template. Please remove the /wpforo/ folder in your theme and start customization using wpForo options. Doc is here:
You can disable menu bar and menus in wpForo Settings > Features admin page:
You can manage menus in Appearance > Menu admin page:
There is no $wpforo-> object anymore. You should use WPF()-> instead of $wpforo->. Please don't use old template files for new wpForo versions.
