Thanks for the care in the detailed reply. I am using a child theme I created from Beaver Builder as I’ve changed more than just the functions.php but also some template files too. Most interesting is your last sentence:
“but load order can come into play, functions placed in your theme’s functions.php file may ‘fire’ too late to be able to make some changes.”
Because I am having some trouble with some of the Event Espresso functionality and I wonder if some of this firing ‘too late’ may be the reason? I’ll post my new issues as new posts. Thanks.
