Child Themify

Description

Create child themes from any non-child theme with the click of a button.

This plugin is multisite compatible; if used on a multisite network, controls for creating child themes will be in the network admin instead of the regular site admin. Pick the parent theme from the dropdown and name name your new child theme. You can also change the author name and select files you want to copy from the parent to the new theme.

Click the button and you’re all set!

Why do you use @import instead of enqueueing the stylesheet?

I catch a lot of flack for not using the method recommended to theme developers for including stylesheets, so hopefully you one-star fanatics will see this first and reconsider.

This plugin is not creating themes for submission to the repo and it doesn’t have any control over the quality of the theme it’s extending. In order for this plugin to successfully enqueue the child theme AND parent theme’s style.css, the parent theme has to actually enqueue its own stylesheet (not a given by a long shot), it has to be done using get_template_directory_uri(), not get_stylesheet_directory_uri() (also not a given), and, in order for the child stylesheet to be enqueued after the parent’s (kind of important for a child theme), there has to be some kind of reliable naming convention for the enqueue ID in the parent theme (no such standard exists). On the other hand, @import just works. It’s the only available method that gets the child theme working in virtually all cases out of the box.

And if you really can’t bear the thought of using @import, just edit the files after creating the theme so that it no longer uses it. It’s your theme, you can do as you like with it.

How much does this plugin do?

This plugin only creates the theme for you. It doesn’t do anything to the database, it doesn’t do anything to your new child theme after you’ve created it. It only gives you buttons to create a child theme.

Where can I get some help?

I’d really prefer that you use Github’s issue tracker. The WordPress.org support forum for the plugin will work too, it will just take longer.

Avis

Top Class

Works brilliantly and easy to use. Love the new feature of creating child files from parent. Top class!

great! fast and easy.

so easy, just install,
go to appearance/ themes,
click on theme you that needs a child and click « Create a child theme »
and voila, you have your new child theme available on theme page.

Works

It works but for some reason, it does no inherit .css or other related files to emulate the main theme?

So you do need (unless I’m missing something in terms of setting it up) to ‘recreate’ the associate files from the main theme

Nice job though and can imagine it will save tons of time to admins
