good, except it messes up my mobile nav
By , for WP 3.8.1

I've used this twice on my websites, and while it does create nice child themes, it often messes with the header.php files in both the child and parent theme. Both websites that had this problem had their responsive navigation menu classes changed, leading to extra work and excess development.

It does do a decent job of creating a child theme, but you're probably safer just doing it yourself.

Surprisingly awesome

Great, simple, easy to use, and the developer is fantastic at answering support questions very quickly. I love anything that makes me use FTP less!

Makes child themes easy on single and multiste
By , for WP 3.8.1

I have used Orbisius Child Theme Creator on several WordPress sites, both single and multi-site. It works great.

The child theme creator gives everything you need to create a fully customized child theme, but the real bonus is the editor. Very easy to add extra files to your child theme.

It works but...

It would be handy to have the option to add the name of my choice to the child theme. At this moment I need to do it by editing all CSS files and renaming my child theme folder.


After an update v1.1.0 I am completely happy with the plugin ;) So changed my review to 5 stars :)

Advanced Child Theme Creator
By , for WP 3.7.1

After the recent updates this is three steps ahead of other child theme plugins (with all due respect).

  • WordPress Multisite compatible.
  • Smart creation menu in its own Orbisius Theme Creator UI.
  • Time-saving Orbisius Theme Editor where you can easily copy parent files over to child and create new theme files!
  • Support really has been outstanding

Works perfectly and easily. Thank you for creating this. Just make sure that you create the child theme BEFORE you make any changes or they may not all be transferred to the new child them and then you will have to make them again.
