    the facebook likebox didn’t show german language, as set in WP (perhaps because of de_formal) and I wanted to get off the facepile. So i set:

    .. data-show-facepile="false" ...;
    // and
    $langcode = "de_DE";

    in /enfold/framework/php/class-framework-widgets.php. It works fine. Is there a way to make these adjustments in the chid theme, without changing an original theme-file?

    Best regards,


    Hey Günter,

    You can try to add this code at your functions.php

    Hi Torvik,

    which code do you mean with “this code”? I have only cited the one variable, I have changed from “true” to “false” in class-framework-widgets.php and the one line I have added to the 1737 lines of class-framework-widgets.php.

    Can you please tell me, how I can add these two items at my functions.php instead of changing the original file.

    Best regards,



    I asked John to check again, on what code was supposed to be here – he will do update the topic on first chance!

    Best regards,

    Hi Günter,

    There are no actions or filters there, so you cannot really make changes in functions.php. What you can do is copy this file (enfold/framework/php/class-framework-widgets.php) to your child theme while preserving the whole folder structure and make your changes there.

    If you need further assistance please let us know.
    Best regards,


    Hi Victora,

    I am happy, because the problem seems to be solved. But it was a long way. For people, who have simiiar problems:

    First I tried a copy enfold_child/framework/php/class-framework-widgets.php, but this mirror has no effect. The page falls back on enfold/framework/php/class-framework-widgets.php

    Then I found in elder support questions the method “reuqire( ‘class-framework-widgets.php’ ) ” in functions.php to embed the file.

    This causes the error message ‘No direct script access allowed’. So I had to comment out the first lie in class-framework-widgets.php: // if ( ! defined(‘AVIA_FW’)) exit(‘No direct script access allowed’);

    Then I got the error: ‘Can not redeclare the class in line 1737’. I deleted everything after the part, related to facebook:

    if (!class_exists('avia_fb_likebox')) {
    	class avia_fb_likebox extends WP_Widget {

    Now it really works!

    Thank you for your help and for the helpful elder ressources in the forum,



    I’m glad you were able to get this solved. If you need additional help, please let us know here in the forums.

    Best regards,
    Jordan Shannon
