Hi friends at ithemes:

I have a simple question before I  go ahead and buy Builder + plugins.

I will be building websites for clients, so my only concern is:

once I'm done building, populating the theme with content and finish up the project, how do I prevent my client from seeing the " amazing tool " I used to create the website? in other words, any way to remove the tutorials help section, the theme name and thumbnail and unused layouts ?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Andres,

My Theme -> Start Here page can be changed to any webpage of your choice. See http://ithemes.com/codex/page/ThemesFAQ#How_to_change_the_Start_Here_link_from_the_theme_options

To learn how to change the name of child theme, follow http://ithemes.com/codex/page/Builder_Child_Themes#How_to_rename_a_child_theme

In the past one of our users asked the following:


I'd like to rename the Builder core them and then the Builder Child theme. Is there any way I can get step-by-step instructions on how to do this?

and my reply was:
  • Make Twenty Ten as the active theme
  • Edit style.css in Builder (parent) directory. Change Theme Name from Builder to say, Company Theme. You might also want to change other values like Theme URI, Description, Author etc.
  • Rename Builder directory to say, company-theme
  • Edit style.css in Builder's child theme (whichever you wish to use and should be made active) directory. Change Theme Name from say, Builder Child Theme - Default to say, Company Child Theme - Default. You might also want to change other values like Theme URI, Description, Author etc. Change Template value to whatever is the name of parent directory (done in step 3)
  • Rename BuilderChild-Default directory to say, company-theme-child

  • Go to Appearance -> Editor. Activate Company Child Theme - Default theme.

Unused layouts can safely be deleted.
