    I am creating a subdomain and want to switch my theme to Mins. I’m new to WordPress.
    Normally, to create a child theme, I would first install the parent theme. Then I see that I should create a new sub-folder (child theme) with css and functions.php that “enqueue” the parent theme. My question is this: if I install mins, do I first install primer as the parent? And then install mins? And then create a child theme folder with css and functions.php to enqueue… what? Do I enqueue mins or primer? Confused about what to do when someone (in this case Godaddy) has provided a theme that is already a child theme! Do I make a grandchild theme? Or just use the child theme? Thanks – and please offer remedial advice or links, I am really new to this.

    PS never mind, I’m going to stick with Responsive, I was not happy with godaddy support, whereas responsive has good explanations of how to make a child theme for it: https://cyberchimps.com/guide/child-theme-example/

    It’s not possible to make a child theme of a child theme. In future, what you could do is just download the theme and duplicate the directory and change the name and work off of that, or create an entirely new child theme off of Primer altogether. Either way would require future maintenance on your end.
