How to override function in parent theme via child theme function in Wordpress?

0 votes

I am trying to do override a function which is inside a class in the parent theme via child theme function. Can someone give me the correct way to override parent theme function via child theme function? Is it even possible on a non pluggable class?

The class itself extends from another class and the base class is pluggable.

class Fre_ReviewAction extends AE_Base --> Class attempting to overrite
if (!class_exists('AE_Base')) {
class AE_Base --> Base class IS PLUGGABLE?

Yes you can do that , first you need to remove the action which you have used in the parent/base class.

function remove_add_class_actions() {
  //remove some action stuff , for example I used woocommerce action
  remove_action( 'some_action_hook', array( $GLOBALS['someglobals'], 'functiontooverrideinchildclass' ), 10, 3 );

  //add action by child class m in your case it will be Fre_ReviewAction
  add_action( 'some_action_hook', array(  new Fre_ReviewAction, 'functiontooverrideinchildclass' ) );
add_action( 'init','remove_add_class_actions' );

After that you need define the child class extending parent,

class Fre_ReviewAction extends AE_Base {
  function __construct() {
  function functiontooverrideinchildclass(){
    //your stuff here

I try to get wordpress list categories with count at the end of each category's name by input the parent category as output.

Ex: I have a parent category name "alpha", and its child categories name are, Category A, Category B, Category C, Category D

I want the output display:

-Category A (5)

-Category B (2)

-Category C (6)

-Category D (7)

    $variable = wp_list_categories( array(
    'show_count' => true,
    'orderby'    => 'name',
    'style'      => 'none'
    ) );
    echo $variable; 

The result of the above code display categories with the count of posts at the end, but it display all categories. Can anybody help me how I fix this problem?
