Child Theme Configurator

Create child themes and customize styles, templates and functions. Enqueues stylesheets and web fonts. Handles rgba, vendor-prefixes and more.

Child Theme Configurator is a fast and easy to use CSS editor that allows you to create a child theme and customize it beyond the options of the Customizer. Designed for WordPress users who want to be able to customize stylesheets directly, the Child Theme Configurator lets you easily identify and override the exact CSS attributes you want to customize. It properly enqueues theme and font stylesheets for optimum performance and handles vendor-specific syntax, giving you unlimited control over your WordPress look and feel while leaving your Parent Theme untouched. Learn more about how to create a child theme.

Take Control of Your Child Themes

The Child Theme Configurator parses and indexes your stylesheets so that every CSS media query, selector, property and value are at your fingertips. Second, it shows you how each customization you make will look before you commit it to the child theme. Finally, it saves your work so that you can customize styles in your child themes without the risk of losing your edits.

You can create any number of child themes from your existing Parent Themes. The Child Theme Configurator lets you choose from your installed themes (even existing child themes) and save the results in your Themes directory.

When you are ready, just activate the Child Theme and your WordPress site takes on the custom styles automatically.
