How to Create a WordPress Child Theme and Why

It’s easy to create your own child theme. Even with little css knowledge you can make changes to your site to make a more personalized theme and I’ll show you how to get started, explain how it works and the advantages of using a child theme.

Bootville Theme Feature List

Each year I try to create a child theme based off of the default WordPress themes. The last two years I didn’t bother (twenty thirteen and twenty fourteen) because those themes were just not very user friendly when it came to editing them. I will be releasing a free Twenty Fifteen child theme with several options in the very near future as soon as I have a chance to check my beta code with the final release.

I have mentioned a few times I have been working on my own theme called Bootville, and wanted to share my progress with you and would love to hear any opinions or suggestions you might have for it. It’s a clean responsive theme with many useful features based on _Underscores Starter Theme by Automattic and Twitter Bootstrap Framework. Font Awesome, IsoTope and Redux Framework were also used in its creation.
