Getting Comfortable With Child Themes

Kathryn PresnerChild themes are a simple but powerful way to customize a pre-made theme. Learning how to use them properly means you’ll never risk losing all your modifications when the developer releases a new version and you update the theme. Using easy-to-follow language, I’ll walk you through the steps to set up a child theme and we’ll get started making some tweaks – from CSS look-and-feel adjustments to more substantial changes in functionality.

Prerequisites: Suitable for those who’ve used pre-made themes or starter themes but haven’t made a child theme yet. Basic PHP knowledge helpful but not necessary.
