WordPress Child theme concept

If you’re here I assume (some say doing this is making an ass out of you and me) that you want to create a child theme for your WordPress website, so I wont go into detail on what this is. I won’t even create a tutorial on how to do one the long way because there are already countless examples on the internet.

I often try not to use plugins when something could be done quickly and easily such as a child theme but we are trying to do this in as little steps as possible.

In this tutorial I will show you How To Easily Create A WordPress Child Theme In 2 Steps using a plugin. This is great if you have a site and have been hearing about this child theme business but not want to touch your website code or not comfortable doing it. This is also a good plugin for dev sites.

 

Step 1.

Go to your plugins directory in your WordPress dashboard and click “Add New” at the top. Search for a plugin called “One-Click Child Theme”.  Find it here.

 

Step 2.

Go to your themes section in your dashboard (Appearance–>Themes). Click on the theme you want to create a child theme for (hover your cursor on the theme and you should see “theme details” text come up), to the bottom of that theme there should be a new option called “Child Theme”. Click on this button and enter your child theme name (Good practice to keep it same name but append “-child” to the end).

 

Alternative

If you do not see the option then go to Appearance –>Child Theme. Add a name for your child theme then click create, this will create a child theme for which ever theme you currently have activated on your website.

Now go to Appearance–>Themes, You should see your newly created child theme activated.


 

Creating a child theme this way is quick and easy, but I believe it’s always good to know how to do something the manual way before the easy way out. You can find out how to create a child theme the manual way here.
