Creating a child theme

Hi, how do I create a child theme, I’ve heard of it here so many times and I think i need to have it

Hi,

You can easily create a Child Theme using this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/child-theme-configurator/ but Sydney Theme has a premade Child Theme, please download it from here: https://docs.athemes.com/article/232-child-theme-for-sydney

Kind Regards,

Thanks, after downloading, whats the next step?

Hi,

After downloading, upload and install it like a regular theme, go to wp-admin -> Appearance -> Themes -> Add New -> Upload the downloaded file, Install and Activate the Child Theme.

Kind Regards,
Csaba

Thanks Csaba, so after that, my wordpress is secure right? From bad coding and I can recover in case of anything?

Hi,

Child Theme only helps you to save your custom code in Child Theme files, so when you update your parent Theme the coding you’ve done in the Child Theme’s files will remain unchanged.

alright, thanks. will try it out

Hi,

Ok, great! You’re most welcome! If you need help with anything else, please open a new topic.

Have a nice day!

Kind Regards,
Csaba
