Parent theme required a foo.php file, and inside that file is a baz() function. I want to use that baz() function in functions.php of the child theme without recall foo.php file again. Are there any ways to do that?

  • Please explain the with code and what you have tried already.

If you can wait for the parent theme's functions.php to load you can hook to the after_setup_theme or init actions and do what you need there.

  • So i hooked it into after_setup_theme and it worked! Thanks you!
