I'm converting a few themes to children of another theme. I want the themes to have the same name as before, and I'd like the change to be transparent to the users of my blog network.
When I replace the themes' folders with child themes in the wp-content/themes directory, the blogs in my network do not work properly until I:
- Access wp-admin/themes.php for each, which automatically disables the new child theme (it says that it has an error or is invalid) and sets the theme to the network default.
- Manually reactivate the child theme.
My blog network is pretty large. Is there a way to automate whatever is happening above so that I don't have to do it manually for every blog in the network?
