Huerto: I mean, modifying its child theme functionality
Huerto: I almost already got it xd
Panelli: Most functions get hooked using add_action. you can use remove_action, then write your own stuff and add that instead.
Panelli: Or you create your own new widget
Lethco: Panelli: that widget gives a dropdown of categories and when we click any one it renders that category post. thats cool but I need that the user can select multiple categories at a time
Panelli: Did you search in the plugin repo?
Lampitt: T4nk091: AVH Extended Categories Widgets – https://----escape_autolink_uri:a03ded6cd97ffffa8f7b4e1454f3eecc----.org/plugins/extended-categories-widget/
Stalnaker: Yes but could’nt find it
Rummel: Want to customize log-in page? ! where is the CSS file to do it?
Panelli: Dury: there are so many plugins available for that. and tutorials. Really, give it a try and search a little.
Rummel: Panelli: see want I can do
Rummel: Panelli: see what I can do, sorry
Rummel: Panelli: which one do you suggest me is better
Panelli: Dury: that really depends what you want to achieve. Hard to say.
Huerto: In functions.php, parent theme uses require_oncepath.’widgets.php’; to include that file, if i need to change the functionality of widgets.php, would it be a good approach to require_once widgets.php in another locationchildtheme with changed functionality?
Panelli: Pezzuti: learning German accent? ;
Panelli: As mentioned before, functions get hooked. you want ti different in a child theme? remove_action, add your own function, then add_action that.
Huerto: Where could i find that add_action?
Huerto: It’s not in ./functions.php :p
Panelli: That might be the reason, functions.php requires another file
Huerto: Ok :p xd, i am completely new to wordpress. my brother happens to need a lot of wordpress work to be done and i am thrown into the open water without knowing how to swim xd
Huerto: Panelli: do widgets act independiently?
Huerto: Hehe i begin to understand little by little. so i have to create and register a new widget !
Goodemote: Does anyone have an idea of how I can add a file type to the edit themes screen?
Panelli: You shouldn’t even use that editor.
Venible: Mmhmm, that’s what people say – now to the question 😛
Huerto: Isn’t it a little “dirty” to code a new widget inside functions.php?, shouldn’t i require_once a widgets.php for my child theme widgets?
Hovell: Anyone here work with nextgen gallery?
Panelli: Huerto: that depends on how bloated your functions.php is
Panelli: Runtyrobot: what files can be edited it set in https://core.trac.----escape_autolink_uri:a03ded6cd97ffffa8f7b4e1454f3eecc----.org/browser/tags/4.3.1/src/wp-admin/plugin-editor.php#L103
Panelli: And in line 112 you see that it uses a filter, which you could hook into
Hohmann: It’s a one off to allow the guy to edit scss that way
Huerto: Can i extend WP_Widgets inside my child theme?
Bockhorst: Want to add social like buttons in nextgen gallery
Panelli: Huerto: why couldn’t you?
Huerto: Panelli: not sure where WP_Widget is declared and/or with which scope
Huerto: Got it that i can, but gona grep for that object
Huerto: Going to grep*, sorry for the slangs
Panelli: Huerto: but I must admit that widgets are one of the more complicated things in WordPress … or at least ***bersome to set up.
Huerto: Panelli: i will do some copy paste of the original plugin which functionality needs to change
Panelli: This isn’t the nextgen support chat. you are asking pretty special questions here.
