I’m using the Celestial Reloaded theme and I wanted to add a social media icon for github. The basic method is clear so far and is already described in this forum.
However, I am not able to overwrite this file with the child theme (the custom field for github_uid is not added to the customisation form):
This file is included in functions.php which is not overwritten as far as I understand, but appended to the functions.php from the parent template.
My guess is, that the following statement in the functions.php of the parent theme does not include the theme-customizer.php from the child theme:
require ( get_template_directory() . ‘/includes/theme-customizer.php’ );
I would be very thankful for a hint, how to customise the social media icons with the child theme,
thanks and cheers,
Everything that is related to the social bar will be these files:
However, adding a new icon via a child theme is going to be a bit more tricky because you have to add more to the existing customizer file which is being called by the functions.php file. You would need to create a new functions file for the child theme plus a new customizer file.
What I can do is add Github and a couple more icons as a theme update. This way you do not need to do this…only thing though is that I probably won’t be able to get to this until next week.
This would be great.
It is not urgent though since for the moment I have hard-coded the icon and the link into the header.php of the child theme.
Just a quick follow up… I am working on a new update version for Celestial Reloaded, and it will have several new social icons added, including Github.
