wordpress child theme

Child themes are those in which we can customize and make changes in the wordpress theme giving no changes and edits in the main theme. By doing so, we get updates of the theme without losing any changes in the main theme. This is one of the safest ways to make relevant changes. We use the child themes on other Wordpress Development Websites. Here we have given a brief description on how to use the child themes on other wordpress websites.

This feature is absolutely portable and can be used in as many websites as we like. This can be downloaded and installed on other wordpress site that you are looking to. If your child theme meets certain standards then there is an option to submit the child theme on to the wordpress theme directory so that it could be used by others also. You need to be sure of the fact that you have a complete back up of the websites that you work on before implementing these changes.

Moving Child Theme

Using an FTP client connect the website and then browse as /wp-content/themes directory. This is the first and the foremost thing that is to be done. Next is to download the child and the parent theme folders in to your storage medium. Also you will have to connect the wordpress website where you install the child theme. Again you will have to browse wp-content> themes>and then the directory to upload the parent and the child theme folders downloaded earlier to the new website using the same FTP client. Next step is to login to the admin area in which you have to install the themes and visit as Appearance/Themes. This will show the installed child an dthe parent themes.
