First Ten Percent – Make themes out of old styles.

Filed under: — Carthik @ 6:47 pm

Starting today, I will be posting one cool tip a day. Any guesses as to why it is going to be filed under the “Ten Percent for the Day” category?

Today’s tip comes from Ryan :

The 1.2 styles can be turned into themes that inherit the classic theme’s templates. Just add a theme header that specifies where to get the templates.

/*
Theme Name: Inherit
Theme URI: http://wordpress.org/
Description: A theme that inherits the classic theme templates.
Version: 1.5
Author: Me
Author URI: http://me.me/
Template: classic
*/

Rename the stylesheet to style.css and put it in a subdirectory of wp-content/themes. The “Template:” field specifies the theme directory to look in for templates. Use “classic” to get classic theme templates and “default” to get default theme templates.
