When using the Customizer is not enough - Create a child theme from your installed themes and customize styles, templates, functions and more.
To install from the Plugins repository:
To install manually:
In the WordPress Admin, go to "Plugins > Installed Plugins." Locate "Child Theme Configurator" in the list and click "Activate."
Navigate to Tools > Child Themes (multisite users go to Network Admin > Themes > Child Themes).
Select an action:
Select a Parent Theme if creating a new Child Theme; select a Child Theme if configuring, duplicating or resetting.
Analyze Child Theme - Click "Analyze" to determine stylesheet dependencies and other potential issues.
If creating a new Child Theme, name the new theme directory; otherwise verify it the directory is correct. - This is NOT the name of the Child Theme. You can customize the name, description, etc. in step 7, below.
Select where to save new styles:
Select Parent Theme stylesheet handling:
Customize the Child Theme Name, Description, Author, Version, etc.: (Click to toggle form)
Copy Parent Theme Menus, Widgets and other Customizer Settings to Child Theme: - NOTE: This will overwrite any child theme options you may have already set.
Click the button to run the Configurator.
IMPORTANT: Always test child themes with Live Preview (theme customizer) before activating!
