The Child Theme Wizard lets you create a new child theme without the need for additional tools, right from within the WordPress admin interface. Once activated you can find it under Tools – Child Theme Wizard.
Specify a parent theme, customise options such as title and description and click Create Child Theme. Upon success you will find your new theme under Appearance – Themes.
You have the option to include GPL License Terms if you wish. The Wizard will automatically create a thumbnail too. In future versions I may include an image uploader for this feature.

Does exactly what it’s supposed to. Flawlessly.
Me assustei com a facilidade. Para editar porém, tem que copiar os arquivos que deseja e passar para o diretório (pasta) do tema criança que criou. Edite como quiser e depois efetiva o tema. Muito simples!
Parabéns ao desenvolvedor
Was having issues getting it to create a child theme I kept getting the error…”Yikes!”
I switched my permissions on my Themes directory to 777 temporarily. It worked afterward. I then switched back to 755. All is good.
Tested and automatically uses wp_enqueue_style to call stylesheet, etc
So quick and easy to setup a child theme with this gem!
Hey! The plugin was super easy to use but the formatting and styles are wrong or missing on the child theme I created.
Compare to our live site:
Can you help?
I wonder if
– activating the child theme and
– deactivating the plugin
could be done with one click?
