WordPress: Childify plugin

Childify Me, create child themes for wordpress easily

Childify Me is used in WordPress for creating a theme that doesn’t get overwritten when your main theme is updated. When installed, folders and files are created that let you add scripts and CSS to your site. This saves you from having to re-enter CSS etc, that will get lost if you update your main theme.

A simple click, and you’re good to go

Installation is simple, and then a single click to create all the files you need. When you go to customise CSS within the theme, you’ll be changing the child theme, and not the main theme.

Personal experience

This plugin was needed for a theme that was regularly updated, and works 100% fine.

Use cases
