    CHILD THEME


    Lincoln comes with a Child Theme. Simply install Lincoln-Child.zip like a regular WordPress theme.

    What is A Child Theme?

    A child theme is a theme that inherits the functionality of another theme, called the parent theme. Child themes allow you to modify, or add to the functionality of that parent theme. A child theme is the best, safest, and easiest way to modify an existing theme, whether you want to make a few tiny changes or extensive changes. Instead of modifying the theme files directly, you can create a child theme and override within.

    Why Use A Child Theme?

    There are a few reasons why you would want to use a child theme:

    • A WordPress child theme allows you to apply custom code changes to your site. Using a child theme ensures that all your customizations will not be overwritten even when you update the parent theme.
    • If you modify code directly from a parent theme, then update the parent theme, your changes will be lost. Always use a child theme if you are modifying core code.

    FONT ICONS


    Follow these steps to know how to add different icons fonts to Lincoln:

    Step 1: Copy the icon fonts following the link: theme root / framework / k2ticon / inc / font. An icons fonts standard includes 4 files: your_font.eot, your_font.svg, your_font.ttf and your_font.woff

    Step 2: Open file as link: root theme / framework / k2ticon / css / style.css to inform font-face and the whole css class for the new font. (Note to change the path to adapt). For example:

    @font-face {

    font-family: " your_font ";

    src: url("../inc/font/ your_font.eot");

    src: url("../inc/font/ your_font.eot#iefix") format("embedded-opentype"),

    url("../inc/font/ your_font.woff") format("woff"),

    url("../inc/font/ your_font.ttf") format("truetype"),

    url("../inc/font/ your_font.svg") format("svg");

    font-weight: normal;

    font-style: normal;

    }

    .icon-1 { content: “” }

    .icon-2 { content: “” }

    ….

    Step 3: Open file as the direction: theme root / framework / k2ticon / inc/ list.php and find line 729 to add new class of the new icon fonts

    ‘your_font ‘ => array(

    ‘icon-1’,

    ‘icon-2,

    ‘icon-3’

    )

    Step 4: Open file as the direction: theme root / framework / k2ticon / js / generator.js and find line 56, duplicate line 56-59 and then paste down

    if ( selectedIcons == ‘your_font-icons-list' ) {

    listIcons.hide();

    jQuery( 'ul. your_font -icon-list' ).show();

    }

    Step 5: Open file as the direction: theme root / framework / k2ticon / k2ticon.php, find line 80 to paste the code down
