WordPress child themes with Child Themify


If you want to reduce some of the pain of managing theme changes in WordPress take a look at the Child Themify plugin which will create a child theme from an existing one with the click of a button. The “child” theme can then be styled to suit your needs and when there is a main theme update your changes won’t be overwritten.


That said, I updated one of my sites yesterday and the header template was overwritten to which I had to add in the custom code – my fault but the limit of child themes are you want to avoid too many template changes as they will conflict with updates in the parent theme.
