    Are there any plans to include overriding parent theme functions? As in access to and creation of a child theme with a functions.php file.

    We have not added theme php editing to CTC because it would not add value over editing the files manually.

    CTC creates the child theme directory and stylesheet (the only requirements for a child theme) and gives you sophisticated tools to locate and override styles from the parent that are very time consuming to do manually.

    If you have specific ideas for manipulating child theme php files that would make it easier to customize your theme, please let us know and we can try to get them in a future release.

    Cheers,

    Some plugins require special functions to carry out text changes or other stuff. These functions get added to the themes functions file so including a functions.php in your child is crucial for me.

    Like custom CSS, custom functions do come up more than i'd like. I think this would be a great tool to add to your plugin, IMO.

    Thanks!

    Version 1.1.9 now writes a blank functions.php file in the child theme directory.

    Enjoy!
