I made a child theme of HTML5 blank where I want to do some modifications like showing the admin bar.
A solution that I found on SO is this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/33739096/html5-blank-theme-wp-admin-bar
But that is not a good solution because the modification happens in the parent theme's
I also noticed that on line 379 of the functions.php in the parent theme if I change
add_filter('show_admin_bar', 'remove_admin_bar'); into
the change works fine.
Now all I want is to simply create a functions.php file inside my-child-theme/functions.php and simply paste
add_filter('show_admin_bar', '__return_true'); in it but that doesn't seem to do anything. The child theme works fine and other modifications are also working fine outside the functions.php file. From what I gathered, simply adding functions.php to your child theme should make it able to have the content override the parent's file, no?
