Child Theme Wizard

Description

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.

Wonderful

It success in creating a child of a strange theme that made me crazy!

a must have!!!

when i was learning wordpress, i spent an evening reading about how to make a child theme. then i speent another evening trying to make one but then i kept running into problems.

then i said, screw it, is there a plugin for this?

i tried child theme wizard. ever since, this has been and always will be my go to plugin for that. it takes 10 seconds to generate a child theme and has never caused me a problem.

thank you!

Perfect, but…

Thank you for your plugin development.

Worked perfect for me….

Note:
In your PHP Ini file, FOpen needs to be ‘On’ for this to fully function.

Simplesmente Impressionante!

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

Perfect Little Tool, A WP Must Have

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.
