Hi guys,

I’m developing a new theme; all work fine, but I’ve a little issue… On theme activation the default admin values aren’t saved into the database, I’ve to hit “reset options” or “save all options” to activate them.

I use SMOF from aquagraphite, version 1.5.2

Some ideas? Many thanks :))

You should never save default theme options to the database, especially on theme activation. That’s bad mojo, my friend.

Learn to use proper defaults. I’m not sure how you’re saving options (Settings API or Theme Mods API), but both allow for defaults. Use them. Learn to love them. http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_option http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_theme_mod
