#1392 closed enhancement (worksforme)

Suggested template change

Reported by: elfin's profile elfin Owned by:
Milestone: 2.0 Priority: normal
Severity: trivial Version:
Component: General - Integration Keywords:


As the child theme grows it is making things more difficult to easily drop in to other themes.

Would it be possible to change calls to:

<?php get_header(); ?>

to a generic include header type functionality
and ditto for the

<?php get_sidebar(); ?>
<?php get_footer(); ?>

into a footer call.

They could all then be changed in one fell swoop as opposed to changing a myriad of calls.

Admittedly most themes will have calls in that order, but not all will.

If the order is the issue, there's no way to know exactly where they are in the theme you're dropping these in to.

In my experience, it's almost impossible to create a theme that will drop in to any other theme without some kind of modification. If the biggest pain is having to rearrange headers, sidebars, and footers, I consider that a success (even if you have to do it 10 times.) :)

fair enough, and I agree.
