How to force Sydney to use child theme header?


#1

Hello,

I am using the free Sydney Theme for my website. I am also using a child theme with a copy of the original header.php file included to be able to make some changes. Unfortunately none of what I write within the ‘child theme header.php’ will show up in the final sourcecode of the website.

How can I make Sydney (or another) theme to implement a child’s header?

Hi Roman,

the website is not openly published yet. It is hidden be a maintenance plugin. So you would not see anything there, sorry.

Am I wrong, that there is a general solution to my problem? The WordPress website sais, I can “overwrite” files by simply putting a new (or customized) file of the same name in the exact same place where the parent theme has it. But that won’t work in my case obviously.

Hello,

It should work like you described, but I don’t think that I can provide much help here without checking your website, unfortunately.

Please note that functions can be called from other files, for example sydney_slider_template() function is in inc/slider.php file.

Kind Regards, Roman.
