Child Page Templates

Allows theme authors to add page templates to their themes that will be automatically used based on the page's parent.

  1. Extract the zip file and drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation and then activate the plugin from the "Plugins" page.
  2. Create a folder in your theme (or child theme, if you use one) called "child-page-templates"
  3. Add a PHP file named after the slug or ID of the parent page you want to use a custom template for.
    • For example: If you want every child page of your "Portfolio" page to use a particular template file, name that template file "page-portfolio.php"
