Child Theme

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

  1. Log in to the WordPress Administration Panels.
  2. Navigate to the Appearance > Themes menu.
  3. Click the Add New button on the top of the screen.
  4. On the next page, click the Upload Theme button on the top of the screen.
  5. Click the Choose File button to open up a dialog to browse your computer and navigate to Child Theme folder. Select the file and click Install Now.
  6. 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.
  7. That's it! Now you can add custom CSS code and PHP functions.

How to use the child theme

  1. After install the child theme navigate to Wordpress admin panel.
  2. Navigate to the Appearance > Editor menu.
  3. 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.
  4. Select the file you want to change and add your PHP/CSS code in the editor on the left side.
  5. Click the Update File button when you're finished editing a file.

Plugin Installation

This theme requires the installation and activation of some plug-ins to add additional features and capabilities. If you want to use contact form, instagram, newsletter and demo import, you need to install the following plugins:

  • Mailchimp for WordPress - This plugin helps you grow your Mailchimp lists and write better newsletters through various methods. You can create good looking opt-in forms or integrate with any existing form on your site, like your comment, contact or checkout form.

  • Contact Form 7 - Contact Form 7 can manage multiple contact forms, plus you can customize the form and the mail contents flexibly with simple markup. The form supports Ajax-powered submitting, CAPTCHA, Akismet spam filtering and so on.

  • Categories Images - The Categories Images Plugin allow you to add image with category or taxonomy.

  • Smash Balloon Instagram Feed - Display Instagram posts from your Instagram accounts, either in the same single feed or in multiple different ones.
