Support » Plugin: Child Theme Creator by Orbisius » Failed to create a child theme, then damaged my parent

    Previously when I’ve made child themes, they looked exactly like the parent. When I made my first with this one, all my homepage graphics and info were gone. Not difficult to replace though.

    Then error messages started appearing that the parent was not installed. Activating the parent showed no problems though. Finally, the child theme disappeared altogether from Themes and there were five error messages that the child theme could not be completed because my parent theme was not fully installed and asking if I wanted to delete. You bet.

    The creator of this plugin sounds like he has a lot of knowledge, but the implementation is horrible. He keeps asking, ‘what theme are you using?’ to deflect, and suggests that he’ll consider setting up a sandbox (???). An odd notion for a simple plug-in.

    People suggest making your own plugin. I tried that but my theme’s CSS is unconventional and did not match well with the tutorials I found. I paid for my theme so they installed a child theme for me and I was also easily able to create a child theme with Child Theme Configurator. Word is that child themes are incredibly simple. They were for me too- until yesterday.
