Any workaround for page_theme file after install of theme?

Permalink
Hi There,

I need to at some styles classes to the CKEditor, and the only way I know to do that is by the page_theme file. For some reason I did not add this file in the initial installation of this theme.
And placing it afterwards does not seem to get pickup up. Anyone found a workaround for this issue?

Uninstall the theme, the reinstall it.

Interesting thought, but this site is live for over a year, with loss of pagetypes, content, blogposts and calander events and all. How will this effect one and other.

Ahh, I had the impression this was a site under development and not a long live site. Good that you didn't risk trying it on the live site !!

Areas - will disappear when you swap the theme out, then reappear with all content when you add it again
Custom blocks provided by theme package - content could be lost
Page Templates - should be OK as they are associated by handle
Page Types - I don't know whether they are associated by handle (in which case you would be OK) or by #ID, in which case page type associations could be lost.

If you want to risk it, try it first on a development clone of the live site.

Yep, I will do that!
But as you know it, there is no DB field I can change to make the theme_page.php take its power?

You can likely find a way to hack it by following through the theme install code. But I don't know what that is.
