I’m glad to hear you’re liking the plugin and theme! You won’t be able to override the parent theme class and shouldn’t in case we release an update. Instead, you’ll want to override the individual theme files such as content.php or content-single.php. Let me know if you have any questions about that.
It appears that the_author information is being pulled in from post_top_meta. Since that’s part of the theme classes that I should not update, how could I implement these custom template tags for Co-Authors?
This is actually my first time working with a Child Theme, so I’m not fully aware of how the whole process works, yet.
No problem. Typically themes aren’t setup to have their classes overridden but most of the template files in the main directory should be. You’ll need to remove our post_top_meta method and output your own post meta markup including your coauthor code there. If you’re looking for a starting point on the markup, you could always view the source of a page, copy the generated HTML and then include the necessary PHP.
Another solution would be to copy the post_top_meta method into your functions.php file removing the “static public” part and changing any instance of “self::” to “FLTheme::”.
