Child theme issues

Hello. I have an issue that the Child Theme is causing a conflict which makes it so that the Options screen in X is not available. It loads but is blank. Here are the steps I have taken:

  • I turned off all of my plugins except for Cornerstone and starting from there turned them all back on one at a time. I did identify some older ones and those were removed but several core ones had a conflict with the Child Theme

  • I theme switched to X theme and repeated the same test and all of them were fine and there was not a conflict

  • The child theme had a lot of customizations in functions.php so I deleted the entire child theme folder once I was sure those were no longer a part of the site and uploaded an entirely new child theme.

This seemed to have addressed the issues but today I went to add some info to the footer and again, the Options page would not load. I turned on X and the issues were gone. Any ideas?

Hello @GeorgiaG,

Thanks for writing in! You may have inserted incorrect code in your footer. One thing I noticed is that you have added this in the X > Theme Options > Custom JS section:

function myFunction() {

You will have to remove this code and then install Insert Headers and Footers plugin. Go to Settings > Insert Headers and Footers > Footer and then this is where you insert the JS code.
