I'm trying to make a small modification to a custom widget that was included with a clients parent theme.
Whenever I remove the parents version of the widget (for testing purposes) the child version of the widget does not take over. Instead, the widget simply disappears.
I've mimicked the directory structure of the parent theme, copied my modified widget .php file into the proper location, and have included the following code in my child themes function.php:
Any idea why the child's version of the widget isn't available?
