Sure I could create my own child theme .... but this plugin is so simple and easy to use (just a few clicks), why should I bother? Love it!

A Superb Plugin - Highly recommend

I had created my own child theme and somehow I deactivated it and didn't realize until I went to add another change.

When I reactivated the theme my website was just a mess...really!!. I tried to find the problem, but just couldn't see why it wasn't working.

Anyway, I found this AMAZING plugin and let it customize my existing child theme and it worked perfectly. So thank you very much LIlaea you saved me a lot of time and upset :).

Awesome

I was quite reticent to instal a child theme plugin as I had already set up my theme in wordpress and was sure that if I created a child theme, I would have to configure the whole thing from square one.

Also, I was reluctant to use a plugin which, at first sight, seemed too complex for my little knowledge of styles, files and so forth. However, in the end it wasn´t too complicated.

Little did I know that this marvelous plugin DOES have the option to copy the settings, menus, etc., of the parent theme, so you don´t have to start all over again.

I particularly had a couple of issues, but not because of the plugin but because of the theme i was using, but for simpler themes i think this is an awesome plugin, and I´m going to start using it in all my websites and my customers´.

A time-saver!

Works as a charm, the best child theme creator out there.

bummer

I'm so disappointed, because I would love to have the control that this plugin offers. But I have analysed six different themes with it (including Twenty Fourteen, Fifteen and Sixteen), and it gives me this warning "Do Not Activate "(theme)"! A PHP FATAL ERROR has been detected" every time. Somehow I don't think the problem is with the themes…

Excellent - But Use a Different Version!
By , for WP 4.5.2

Started off using version 1.7.9.1 a few months ago, and creating a child theme and styling it was a breeze!

The later versions have made 'some significant changes' which render the majority of themes utterly useless and un-workable.

Provided you can get hold of the last version before the changes (I use WP Rollback), it's an excellent tool!

used to be good

Used to work great. Nowadays, even with a default install of WordPress with twentysixteen and no plugins, clicking the "Create Child Theme" does nothing. No saving or progress and no errors in console.
