One Click Child Themes & Theme Template Page Creation

  1. mchelles

    There is a very basic plugin to do this already:

    I would like to recommend this functionality be built in to WordPress itself, where all you would have to do is just choose the parent theme from a drop down of installed themes, give your theme a name, and poof! Instant child theme!

    For maybe possible features: Option to either clone standard page (ie: single.php, index.php) or ability to create your own blank page templates on the fly in wordpress dashboard. (ie : myblankpagetemplate.php)

  2. Really good idea. @mchelles : I do not used this plugin but did it by hand and had sometimes strange behavior since my child themes were not recognized and not appearing in the back office. Such an idea would be safer.

    Plugin is interesting.

    Although the plugin works fine, I think making this core would encourage the use of child themes, rather than randomly hacking theme files..
