I bought the u-design theme, which is fantastic by the way. For privacy reason, I don’t want people to view the source code and see the name of the theme. I am using a child theme and have tried rename the parent theme as well as the child theme (child theme folder name is parenttheme-child).

However in my WP admin backend, I am seeing this message:

The current directory structure to the theme is not valid! The CORRECT path is: wp-content/themes/u-design/...(theme files)

How do I correctly rename the theme folder without triggering this error? Perhaps the author internq7 can help me? I don’t have to use the child theme, I just set it up that way originally in case I needed to do any customization but have not had to yet.
