recently i've made a costum wordpress theme , i already made few before but this time i'm really confused about issue:

issue is ; in costum theme i'm using this :

get_template_directory_uri() to get the current theme 's url for getting his js files and css files work , but some how at the palce of my current theme name it is replacing with twenty twelve theme name , my costum theme is not an child of twenty twelve .

style.css header code :

Theme Name: Nicole 's New Theme.
Theme URI: http//:www.itmatic.io/.
Description: This Theme is created by itmatic , please do not edit anything , just make    an child theme and do the changes.
Version: 1.0
Author: Itmatic
Author URI: http//:www.itmatic.io/.
@import url("assets/css/reset.css");
@import url("assets/css/style.css");

try get_stylesheet_directory_uri()


Using this has helped me with this type of issue in the past.

  • is your theme built by using twentytwelve as its foundation?

  • @joseph-neathwak once i connected it to twenty twelve but after 5 min i removed the template: twentytwelve , because i do have all my own costum functions. Jul 11, 2014 at 18:21
  • My first thought is to do a hard refresh of the page. If it still exists, then do a search through your code to see where navigation.js is being used. It is likely in the header.php or functions.php. I can see that your style header shows this is NOT a child theme, so my next thought is that you built this theme by first copying twentytwelve and then making any changes you wanted to it. There is nothing wrong with that at all, but it can cause this type of problem by leaving around bits of code that you aren't using.
