Hello, in the future, could the White label plugin also customize the theme name visible in theme detectors?
Thanks for the request. Please describe it in more detail.
I can change the theme name manually so when somebody checks my website using https://www.wpthemedetector.com/ the original theme name is hidden, but that means not receiving automatic updates anymore and updating manually. It would be usefull if the plugin would allow me to change the theme name. Thanks
Did you rename the theme folder to make it work? If so, then our plugin will not be able to do this due to permissions on client’s servers.
Provide temporary wp-admin access, so we can take a closer look.
I didn’t rename it, i was just asking.
The manual way to change the theme name would be like bellow (the downside: no more automatic updates for the theme).But it would be great if we could change the name of the theme from the plugin, keeping automatic updates. Thanks.
1. Rename the Folder
Connect to your server’s File Manager with an FTP client or cPanel.
Open wp-content/themes folder.
Rename the theme folder.
After installing WordPress, this is the first thing you need to do. Because once you rename a theme, its configuration will reset.
2. Edit Style.css
Open the theme folder and the style.css file.
You can see the theme name in style.css file. Rename the theme in this file as well.
Save the changes.
3. Re-activate the Theme
Go to WordPress Dashboard > Appearances > Themes and activate your theme with the new name.
Thank you for your suggestion but nope, unfortunately, that won’t be possible for the parent theme.
