    Hello,

    what is the preffered method of making customization in your themes? Do I have to make a “themename-child” folder? If so what files should I put in that folder?

    You can customize the theme in itself by changing the folder name to version2.0 or something. No need to develop the child theme as we donot force updates via WordPress admin and only email about theme updates. So its upto clients to download the fresh theme and re upload.

    We don’t want to break anyones website.

    Thank you for a quick responce.

    Have made as you told me. But when I move it from local server to production (files copied to ftp, mysql exported to dump, old site name changed to new one in the sql-dump and when imported) it doesn’t want to read <code>optionsframework_skt_parallaxme</code> form <code>wp_options</code> table and overwrite that by default…

    It should go with the new theme because if you get the dump of MySQL it should work.

    Our theme options framework creates a line within wp_options

    By the name: optionsframework_sktparallaxme_pro

    So check if you copied the wp_options table as well properly.

    Thank you for a direction.
    Unfortunately it was not so easy: if I change any symbol in the “optionsframework_sktparallaxme_pro” after import (any way: changing the dump, changing the value directly in PHP MyAdmin or using SQL Update query) with the next step it has been automatically rewritten by default content. So I had to import whole dump, manually change only site_url and home and change any links on the frontpage through Theme Options.

    BTW I’d like to contribute you an idea (or the code if you need it)
    1) change social_icon pictures to Font Awesome characters
    2) use posts to show its data on sections

    Hi,

    Sure. Will do that. Point noted. Will update the theme next month and update you of the same.

    Regards,
