Creating a child theme is extremely simple, so much so you can copy and paste my example below.
To create a child theme for your theme, you will need to do the following steps:
- Create a theme directory in your WordPress install
- Create a stylesheet with information about your child theme
- Pull in the styles of your parent theme
Once these steps are completed you can activate your child theme and your website will look exactly the same as before, but it will be using your child theme.
So let’s go through the above steps in detail. For this example, I will be creating a child theme for the Twenty Fourteen default theme.
