    You have to create a NEW folder for the child theme – as well as a style.css file – see:


    really ? oh my
    do i have to know any of this code? stuff to do this?
    all this to add a few words to try to copyright my blog?


    i started to look at the link to codex wordpress. do i do this stuff inside/via the dashboard ? or at my host?

    It’s not possible to create a new folder or file via the Dashboard, so you need to use FTP (or another file manager) to create the child theme files.

    Deactivate your Child Theme plugin.

    Then create a folder in the “themes” folder and call it “spun-child”.
    Inside the “spun-child” folder create a style.css file and put this code into it:

    Theme Name: Spun Child
    Template: spun
    @import url("../spun/style.css");

    Then activate “Spun Child” in the dashboard as your new theme.

    Once you’ve done that you need to copy the functions.php file from the actual “Spun” theme and paste it into your “spun-child” folder.

    whoa slow down

    okay i created a “spun-child” new folder in themes

    how do i create a style.css file?

    Can you create a plain text (.txt) file? If so, create it and rename (including the .txt bit) it as “style.css”.
