Reply To: How to use Child Theme "after" website built?


To use any child theme out there all you need to do is upload it like you would with any theme then activate.

I built my website before you offered the child theme.

Child themeing isn’t a new concept or even unique to my themes. They’ve been in use long before I’ve submitted a theme to If a user finds it really necessary to use a child theme then they should really be the one to create it. I just offered a ready-made one to make it convenient.

How does this effect all the settings I have already created on the parent theme?

The settings on the theme options page will remain the same. If you’re talking about changes/edits you made on the actual theme files then no, you’ll have to do them again on the child theme.
