    Nick Adams: Getting Started with Child Themes

    WordCamp Buffalo 2018Speaker: Nick Adams

    May 29, 2018 — Child Themes are one of the most essential and neglected things when customizing a website. Quite often, people will customize a theme and get their site exactly how they want it, only to see it all wiped away by a theme update. This can be avoided. In this session, I will teach you when you should use a child theme (spoiler alert: it’s all the time), how to set one up and how to use it to customize your website. At the end of the session, everyone will be equipped with the knowledge of how to set up the child theme and also have the ability to download the Twenty Seventeen child theme that I built for WordCamp Buffalo as a starting point with a lot of comments in the style.css and functions.php to explain why I did what I did and how to do similar things to customize their child theme.

    Nick Adams: Getting Started with Child Themes

    WordCamp Rochester 2017Speaker: Nick Adams

    November 29, 2017 — In this presentation, I will explain what child themes are and why they should be used. I will then show how to create a child theme using both a plugin as well as manually creating a new directory and putting in a custom style.css and functions.php file. I will then show how changes to a child theme’s CSS overrides the parent theme’s styles when they apply to the same target element, whereas items added to functions.php run in addition to everything in the parent theme’s functions.php. I will also show how to use Inspect Element in a browser to find what style is currently assigned to an element. Throughout the slides, a single child theme of Twenty Seventeen will be created, resulting in a completely custom child theme that is well documented with explanations written in comments about what the code is doing and what line in the parent theme’s style.css it is overriding for reference.

    Carla Saiz Jiménez: Mi primer parto en WordPress. No hacen falta 9 meses para tener un hijo, tan sol

    WordCamp Madrid 2017Speaker: Carla Saiz Jiménez

    May 16, 2017 — En esta charla me gustaría explicar la importancia de crear un child theme en WordPress y cómo se hace. Sobre todo por la típica que siempre te pide el cliente de tocar algo de diseño en CSS y para que no se nos vaya todo al traste al actualizar si hemos tocado cualquier archivo de nuestro theme. Daré nociones muy básicas para detectar el CSS a través del inspector de elementos del navegador y enlaces de interés para sumergirse en la programación como FrontEnd.
