Can I change the theme name in WordPress?
How can I change the theme name in WordPress and where?
Can I also change the folder name theme1244 in public/wp-content/themes/theme1244 without having problems in the future?
Step 1: Firstly go to wp-content/themes/ folder. And then rename your theme folder to whatever you want.
Step 2: Open your theme folder and open style.css file. In top part of style.css you will see theme name. Rename it and save changes.
Step 3: Go to Wp-admin/appearance/themes and activate your theme under new name.
If you are using child/parent theme and you also rename parent theme folder&name, so after Step 3 you should additionally change parent theme path in child theme’s style.css.
note : renaming your theme will stop its automatic updates, you should do it manually in the future.
You can absolutely change the name of the folder without having any problems. If you want to change just the themes name, open the style.css in the root folder of your theme and edit the name in the comments at the top of the file. If you plan on doing more changes, you might be better off creating a child theme: https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
