    hi all,
    Does this theme (free version 1.1.1) support child themes?
    If so do they provide a sample one?
    Where can it be downloaded from?

    You can easily create a child theme -- see this:

    Thank you for the reply WPygi,
    I am aware of the link and the creation of child themes.
    Still. Some designers give themes that support child themes ONLY with their PRO-versions

    So, the question still remains:

    Does the Pagelines theme (free version 1.1.1) support child themes?

    Anyone has an answer on that?

  4. The short answer is: you're just going to have to try it and see if it works. Think of it as a learning experience. ;)

    Nope, not true. All WordPress themes are 100% child theme-able. The caveat is some (not many, thank goodness!) load the CSS a little differently and that needs to be handled.

    See this link as an example.

    The other gotcha is that some themes, PRO or not, don't use get_template_part() but even that is surmountable. That just means that some of their theme components may not be easily replaceable.

    Try it, that link that WPyogi posted isn't that difficult to follow and you'll expand WordPress knowledge and have fun too.

    @Jan:
    The short, right to the point answer is given by Simon Prosser:

    PageLines is 100% child theme compatible.

    Thank you Simon. :)
    The adventurous answer is:

    you're just going to have to try it and see if it works. Think of it as a learning experience.

    ;)
    Still your reference to this thread is really valuable.
    Thank you as well.

    Enough said. Thank you all.
    I mark the topic as resolved
