Create child theme (7 posts)

    I'm trying to create a child theme for Discover so that I can modify the code safely, but my usual method isn't working, and I think it might be because it's filed differently to other themes where I've done this.

    Is there a special method for doing this and can anyone explain how I go about this?

    Thanks so much!

    Hi Pedalkraft,

    To create a child theme you can use this plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/one-click-child-theme/

    And you can watch the video tutorial about how to use this plugin at: http://youtu.be/AS38SOMnCIw

    Thanks Shinjing, I'll try that.
    Any idea how to do it manually? It's bugging me that that I can't seem to manage it with this theme, and I'd like to work out why and how.
    I should add I'm pretty new to child themes - have only done four or five so far.

    Thanks Shinjing.

    As I said, I have done it before (I learned how from the information you link to above and have successfully managed this a few times now), it just doesn't seem to be working for Discover specifically. I was just trying to find out if anyone knew a reason why it might work slightly differently for Discover.

    Will keep plugging away :)

    Thanks for your help anyway!

    I also cannot get the child theme for Discover ( I have Pro version) to work. As a work around I am using the Appearance-->Theme Options-->Custom CSS to add custom CSS.

    It's possible that the theme won't work with a child theme - some themes won't.
