Video Tutorial: Creating a child theme in WordPress

WordPress GrapheneI have made another video tutorial, this time giving step-by-step instructions on how to create, and use, a child theme with wordpress. This video explains the technique using the Graphene theme version 1.5.2. Please get in the practice of using a child theme TODAY, as it will save you tons of time when a new version of your theme, or WordPress, rolls out.

In this video, I will show you how to:

  • Create your files
  • Upload them to your server
  • Activate your child theme
  • Make modifications to your css

There are many advantages when using a child theme with your graphene theme. Changes made are kept when installing an update. This means that you don’t have to remember all the custom changes you made when a new update rolls out, and replaces the parent themes style and functions files.

If you haven’t already, I highly recommend you creating a child theme immediately. Especially if you are making modifications to your Graphene core files.

Enjoy, and please comment. (you don’t even have to log in… shhhhhhh)
