    Can you have more than one child theme and if so, what is the syntax

    I have a base theme and I want to develop multiple different child themes on the same WordPress install so that I can use the same content.

    basic2013

    basic2013-child

    basic2013-another-child

    (I'm not looking for a grandchild)

    I just want to be able to switch between 2 or 3 different child themes that are dependent on the one base theme (in the same install).

    Thanks.

    You can make multiple child themes, but only one theme can be activated at a time. The set-up syntax is the same for any child theme - just use a different name for each one and on the child theme folders.

    You can have as many child themes as you want but they would all be based on the original parent theme and only 1 could be active at a time. I think I've made about 6 child themes for one of my own themes.

    In researching this, I just discovered there's a plugin called Grandchild Theme. I haven't checked it out, but it's a great idea.

    I think adding a plugin for doing need is not a need. Works very easy by duplicating the folders and editing the style.css to rename
