Continuing Wordpress help filter: trying to append a certain word to the end of each title of the posts on my blog. Issue complicated slightly by this being a child theme, details inside...
OK, so I'm using the Buddypress plugin, with the theme Frisco, which is a child of the default BP theme. I need to append the word "test" to the end of each post title, so if the title of a post was Foo, then I'd like for it to automatically be Foo Test when viewed on the front page.
Advice I've gotten from other people suggest that this can be modified by going in to single.php, finding the place where wordpress is calling the title of the post (the "php the_title();" function) and writing in "test" in plain HTML next to this, so in the current theme it's right here
(with the full single.php
file at that link). Every time I try to modify this, the changes don't show up on my site. I've tried editing the parent theme directly (a bad idea, I know) and putting a copy of the single.php file in to the child theme's directory. Neither one works.
Am I going about this the wrong way? Do I have the right idea and the wrong execution? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
