Easily update themes in WordPress Dashboard
A child theme is a theme that inherits the functionality and styling of another theme, called the parent theme. Child themes are the recommended way of modifying an existing theme.
Why use a Child Theme?
There are a few reasons why you would want to use a child theme:
If you modify a theme directly and it is updated, then your modifications may be lost. By using a child theme you will ensure that your modifications are preserved.
Using a child theme can speed up development time.
Using a child theme is a great way to learn about WordPress theme development.
Child Theme Install
Log in to the WordPress Administration Panels.
Navigate to the
Appearance > Themes menu. Click the
Add New button on the top of the screen. On the next page, click the
Upload Theme button on the top of the screen.
Choose File button to open up a dialog to browse your computer and navigate to Child Theme folder.
Select the file sarah-child.zip and click Install Now. Please wait a few seconds, WordPress will upload and extract the theme archive for you. All you need to do next is to press the
Activate link under the message for successful theme installation. That's it! Now you can add custom CSS code and PHP functions.
How to use the child theme
After install the child theme navigate to Wordpress admin panel.
Navigate to the
Appearance > Theme Editor. In the section titled
Templates, you will see a list of files that you can edit:
functions.php - This lets you add additional functions, classes and hooks to WordPress theme without needing to alter the code within the functions file of the parent theme.
style.css - This lets you add or change the theme styles (colors, sizes, fonts, backgrounds etc.) without needing to change the code within the style.css file of the parent theme. Select the file you want to change and add your PHP/CSS code in the editor on the left side.
Update File button when you're finished editing a file.
Well, it's really simple.
If you're using the theme to build a new website which doesn't have content yet, I strongly recommend you to use the demo content files.
Along the project, I've been using the following assets, even if they were images, icons or other files, as listed.
Once again, thank you so much for purchasing this template.
As I said at the beginning, I'd be glad to help you if you have any questions relating to this template.
