    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.

    WordCamp Milano 2016Speaker: Torsten Landsiedel

    December 2, 2016 — We always tell the people in the support forums they should use a child theme to make customisations. So many talks are introductions to create child themes. But what if you have a child theme and the parent theme got an update? How do you keep track of your changes?

    A talk for people who don’t want to be beginner any longer and need to be intermediates. Including a plugin solution.
