Theme Setup

The AppPresser 3 theme is used to display your WordPress content in your app.

Setup

  1. Download the theme zip file from your AppPresser account page.
  2. Login to your WordPress website, and go to Appearance=>Themes=>Upload.
  3. DO NOT activate the theme
  4. Navigate to the AppPresser settings page, and choose your AppPresser 3 theme in the app only theme select menu, and save.

Customization

Most customization can take place in your myapppresser.com app customizer. You can change colors, and even add custom CSS there.

We recommend doing most customization through the myapppresser.com dashboard. However, you can also use a child theme if you need more control.

Child Themes

To download our ready made child theme, See:  Child Theme


To create a child theme for the AppPresser 3 theme, create a folder with a style.css file inside. Add this to your style.css file:

/*  
Theme Name:   AppPresser 3 Child 
Description:  AppPresser 3 Child Theme 
Author:       John Doe  
Author URI:   http://example.com  
Template:     ap3-ion-theme  
Version:      1.0.0  
License:      GNU General Public License v2 or later  
License URI:  http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html  
*/

The important line is "Template", everything else can be edited.

Next, create a functions.php file in your child theme folder. Add this code:

<?php 

function appp_child_enqueue_styles() {      

$parent_style = 'ap3-ion-style'; // This is the parent theme stylesheet

wp_enqueue_style( $parent_style, get_template_directory_uri() . '/style.css' );     

wp_enqueue_style( 'ap3-child-style', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/style.css',         array( $parent_style ), wp_get_theme()->get('Version') ); // this is your child theme stylesheet

} 

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'appp_child_enqueue_styles' );

Make any CSS changes in your child theme style.css file, do not edit any files in the parent theme. You can additionally add template files in your child theme that will overwrite parent theme templates.

You can now zip your child theme folder and upload it under Themes => Add New => Upload.

More information on child themes can be found on the  child themes codex page regarding when and why you should use a child theme.
