    Instead of a heap of posts on the same sort of topics, how about a Single thread to List bugs for version 8.5 of the coupon theme. This should help Mark out.

    Coupon styles are loaded Twice in this order:
    1. templates/template_coupon_theme/style.css?ver=4.3 – OK.
    2. templates/template_coupon_theme/style_childtheme.css
    3. templates/template_coupon_theme/style_childtheme.css?ver=4.3 – Duplicate.

    Child Theme
    Style.css in a custom childtheme simply doesn’t load – most likely due to the above issue.

    Rating Styles
    Most rating styles do not work. (thumbs Up)

    Admin
    Can no longer set a custom Admin Title for Listings using WLT_LISTING_TITLE

    Thumbnails
    Taxonomy Images ignored in favor of Pagepeeker thumbnails which are loaded from their website – not a fan of this at all due to the reliance on 3rd party infrastructure. WordPress has its own alternative here: https://github.com/Automattic/mshots

    I’ll keep adding more as I find them.

    Yes, the issue only appears when you are using a child theme.

    I cant give you a link as its on my local dev server.

    I am also creating a WordPress Childtheme using this method https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    Functions and template override work fine – just cant get the css style to load.

    Iv tried viewing other client sites that are using child themes but they don’t seem to have any style issues either. Could you include a sour code screenshot of the header so i can see?

    Aaron, please check your child theme and make sure that there is only one style.css file as there is an issue with the built in child theme creator (there were few threads on the forum about it).

    Yes just one style.css file.

    I have tried every single way to create a basic child theme, attached is a childtheme called batman generated by the child theme creator and edited with a simple H2 title colour change.

    The new search bar in the header seems to just display dummy categories instead of actually grabbing the ones from my database.

    I’ve changed my categories to fit the relevant discounts that will appear on my website, but the new search bar still displays the default categories from the demo.

    Can confirm this also.

    Attached are 2 simple child themes with exactly the same edits.

    Couponic15 Works.
    ZOD doesn’t.

    Not sure if its a naming issue, character limit or something but I cannot figure it out at all.

    Aaron, ok the issue is with the characters on your folder name. Increase it to more than 10 characters.

    batman <-- only 6 and its not being picked up.

    @Matthew, not sure i understand, the head only shows stores, the first one is the coupon type and the last a search box.
