As a beginner to WordPress, I appreciated how painless this was. Thank you.
Simple and effective. Bravo!
A nice touch would be to be able to add optional info, like description, author, url, etc. - but it still gets 5 stars!
...and perfect! :-)
1. Click, Create a child theme under the theme you want a child theme for in Appearance > Themes
2. Give your new child theme a name
3. Click, Let's Go!
A folder is added to the WordPress themes folder with a css file in it containing the necessary wording for a child theme, and your new child theme is now included in the Appearance > Themes section.
Thank you, John P. Bloch!
Do we really NEED to have a plugin? Not really but it is so much easier to not have to go to cPanel or FTP to create a child theme. Great job and thanks for reminding me that I needed this plugin...
Absolutely brilliant plugin. Hands down THE BEST "child theme creation" plugin out there. Trust me. Install, and click create-child-theme.
It's that easy. Then, knock yourself out customizing your child theme's details and style :)
Received an error when creating a child theme of twenty ten
Warning: illegal offset type in isset or empty in /xxx/xxx/xxx/wp-includes/theme.php on line 525.
Also, created a child of a buddypress theme and received a message to use a buddypress compatible theme when I activated it.
I am brand new at playing with WordPress themes but after spending a week creating my website, I I learned that it was a good idea to create a child theme.
I read everything I could about creating the child theme and reviewed various options and was afraid that I would miss a step or do something to completely trash what I had already created. Admittedly, I was a little nervous to try such a new plugin.
My experience: I used this plugin and in less than five minutes I had my child theme and everything seems to be working perfectly with my site!
Adds a menu item for installed themes to create the child theme. Creates a folder in themes with the child theme name and a style.css file in it.
In the style.css file it adds this header:
Theme Name: Child Theme Name.
Description: Description of child theme.
