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
By , for WP 4.5.3

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
By , for WP 4.5.2

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!
