    I was really hopeful I was going to learn what I needed to do to set up a child theme for my site. However there were so many references to “this” and “these” , without the visual of what the subject was, I could not know what the speaker was referring to.

    Oh well, there’s plenty “how to s” out there.

      Hi Greg,

      My talk outlined the specifics of setting up a basic child theme. If you follow along the Powerpoint I made, you’ll be ready to be up and running with your own child theme in no time. The only thing that’s changed between then and now is the way the parent stylesheet is called. Your best bet is to visit https://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes, which is the official WordPress page on creating Child Themes.

      Good luck and best wishes,
      Jess

What is a child theme and why should you care? WordPress themes make it easy to create a good-looking site fast but they’re not always exactly what we want out of the box. Child themes allow you to quickly and easily change things like link color, font, and content area dimensions while leaving the original theme untouched. This presentation walks you through the basics of setting up a child theme. Basic CSS and FTP knowledge are recommended but not required.
