How can I create a child theme for Custom Community Pro?
Never change the theme files, as all your settings would be lost with every update. (theme files are replaced everytime)
So as soon you'd like to change code, you should create your custom child theme. So, let's step in:
Attached here you can download a prepared example child theme for Custom Community Pro! :)
As soon as you upload this to your themes folder, you will be able to activate this new child theme in APPEARANCE -> THEMES. Ready!
It’s just a css file as starting point. Now you cann add your own styles or add a complete new file, for example the header.php. The file names must be the same, otherwise your new child theme file will not overwrite the original file. Tip: copy the original code from the original file, and then just modify! :)

I have a problem with CC Pro 0.7.1. It is loading all items from 2 menus and disregarding menu nesting levels.
I have NOTHING but a blank style.css with the exact @import line above. I'll show before and after screenshots:
Yes, the directory path is correct. If it wasn't, I wouldn't get any formatting at all. Yes, my child theme is located in the wp-content/themes dir.
Here is a cut and paste copy of my style.css, the only file in the child directory:
/* Theme Name: XXXXX Description: Child theme for the Custom Community Pro Author: Bruce W Template: custom-community-pro */
Just to be sure, I tried your sample theme here and got the same results.
just saw your comment here, now. For the future, please write a support ticket if you need help, that's the safe and easy way to get quick help.
If problem is still current -> the solution is your wp custom menu.
You will just have to save it again in APPEARANCE > MENUS.
Hi This ccould be the wrong place to post but I am having real dificulties adding a 468x60 banner in my header. I have tried adding to the header right an it just shows half the advert. Is there a way to change the size of the widget area?

Do you have to be a Premium member to get an answer on a support ticket?
I created a child theme, my style.css has no custom styles, it simply imports the style.css from Custom Community.
However, any template file I make, using Custom Community's "page.php" as a base, has a broken '<div id="content" class="span8">', which is spanning all 12 column areas instead of only 8. '<div id="content" class="span8">' is effectively covering the right sidebar. I put a border on this div to check this out, and for sure it's taking up the sidebar too. This happens even if I simply copy and paste the contents of page.php and give it a template name, like so:
[** code removed **]
1. No you don't need to be a premium member, just create a support ticket..
2. I removed the code from your comment.
3. Please try out the new version 1.16 just published.
* should be available at wordpress.org the next days..
* for now available at github: https://github.com/Themekraft/Custom-Community
If you run into any further problem just create a support ticket to get personal help.
This way we can help you better and the comment area is not overloaded with old issues one day.
Thanks, hope this helps
