Dequeing Parent Fontawesome Deques Parent Styles


I’m trying to dequeue fontawesome from a parent theme in my child theme. For this I use the following code:

function si_dequeue_child_styles()

add_action('wp_print_styles', 'si_dequeue_child_styles', 99);

However, this seems to also dequeue the parents theme styles, which I don’t want. What could be causing this?

For reference, I’m using the widely know WP Bootstrap Starter theme.


I found the cause for my problem. I used the "Child Theme Configurator" plugin to generate my child theme. The plugin put the following code at the top of my functions.php. The plugin decided that wp-bootstrap-starter-fontawesome-cdn was relevant for the loading of the themes main CSS (look at the very end of the wp_enqueue_style function):

if (!function_exists('chld_thm_cfg_parent_css')):
    function chld_thm_cfg_parent_css()
        wp_enqueue_style('chld_thm_cfg_parent', trailingslashit(get_template_directory_uri()) . 'style.css', array('wp-bootstrap-starter-bootstrap-css', 'wp-bootstrap-starter-fontawesome-cdn'));

add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'chld_thm_cfg_parent_css', 10);
