Multisite enhancement: Tool to update the parent theme across multiple sites
|Reported by:||yurivictor||Owned by:|
In multisite, say I want to update a bunch of sites to use twentyfourteen as a parent theme since twentythirteen is so last year, but I have a child theme for all my awesome share tools and adsplosions and super big nav.
If I change Template in my child theme's style.css to twentyfourteen, like so
/** * Theme name: Child theme * Template: twentyfourteen */
It doesn't update to twentyfourteen. It would be nice if it did.
Instead you have to go to Network Admin and change the template settings to twentyfourteen on each site individually. Or write a MySQL script or whatever.
Maybe this is intentional for security or something, but it would still be nice to have a tool to update the parent theme across multiple sites.
