WordPress is not updating Theme option after making a theme a child theme by adding the line 'Template' to the child`s css without refreshing Theem activation
|Reported by:||drale2k||Owned by:|
If you have 2 Themes on a 2 sites MultiSite install (each site is using one theme) and want to make one of them a child Theme of the other, you will go to one of them and add the line 'Template: NAME OF THE PARENT THEME' and save it.
After doing so the Child Theme will not inherit any Template Files from the parent until you deactivate/activate the Child Theme again.
Although it says in the "Themes/Appereance" section of the Child Themes backend 'CHILD THEME NAME uses templates from PARENT THEME NAME. Changes made to the templates will affect both themes.' even before deactivating/activating the Child Theme.
Looks like the template page might be checking the style.css and not update the option.
