Child Themify

Description

Where can I get some help?

I’d really prefer that you use Github’s issue tracker. The WordPress.org support forum for the plugin will work too, it will just take longer.

Reviews

great! fast and easy.

so easy, just install,
go to appearance/ themes,
click on theme you that needs a child and click “Create a child theme”
and voila, you have your new child theme available on theme page.

Works

It works but for some reason, it does no inherit .css or other related files to emulate the main theme?

So you do need (unless I’m missing something in terms of setting it up) to ‘recreate’ the associate files from the main theme

Nice job though and can imagine it will save tons of time to admins
