Child Theme Configurator WordPress Plugin overview

Child Theme Configurator Wordpress Plugin is used to When using the Customizer is not enough - Create a child theme from your installed themes and customize styles, templates, functions and more..

Child Theme Configurator is a fast and easy to use utility that allows you to analyze any theme for common problems, create a child theme and customize it beyond the options of the Customizer. Designed for WordPress users who want to be able to customize child theme stylesheets directly, Child Theme Configurator lets you easily identify and override the exact CSS attributes you want to customize. The Analyzer scans the rendered theme and automatically configures your child theme. It correctly enqueues theme and font stylesheets for optimum performance and handles vendor-specific syntax, giving you unlimited control over the Child Theme look and feel while leaving your Parent Theme untouched. Learn more about how to create a child theme.

Take Control of Your Child Themes

Child Theme Configurator parses and indexes your stylesheets so that every CSS media query, selector, property and value are at your fingertips. Second, it shows you how each customization you make will look before you commit it to the child theme. Finally, it saves your work so that you can customize styles in your child themes without the risk of losing your edits.

You can create any number of child themes from your existing Parent Themes. Child Theme Configurator lets you choose from your installed themes (even existing child themes) and save the results in your Themes directory.

When you are ready, just activate the Child Theme and your WordPress site takes on the custom styles automatically.

  • Child Theme Configurator PRO

    Apply the CSS customizing power of Child Theme Configurator to any WordPress Plugin installed on your website. Child Theme Configurator PRO scans your plugins and lets you customize their stylesheets. We've added more features to make customizing styles quicker and easier with PRO.

    Is there a tutorial? There are videos under the "Help" tab at the top right of the page. You can also view them at If the parent theme changes (e.g., upgrade), do I have to update the child theme? No. This is the point of using child themes. Changes to the parent theme are automatically inherited by the child theme. A child theme is not a "copy" of the parent theme. It is a special feature of WordPress that let's you override specific styles and functions leaving the rest of the theme intact. Quality themes should identify any deprecated functions or styles in the upgrade notes so that child theme users can make adjustments accordingly. If I uninstall Child Theme Configurator are child themes affected? No. Child Theme Configurator is designed to work independently of themes and plugins. Just remember that if you re-install, you must rebuild the configuration data using the Parent/Child tab. How do I add comments? Arbitrary comments are not supported. Providing a high level of flexibility for previewing and modifying custom styles requires sophisticated parsing and data structures. Maintaining comments that bound to any particular element in the stylesheet is prohibitively expensive compared to the value it would add. Although we are working to include this as an option in the future, currently all comments are stripped from the child theme stylesheet code. Does it work with Multisite? Yes. Go to "Network Admin > Themes > Child Themes." Child themes must be "Network enabled" to preview and activate for Network sites. Does it work with plugins? Child Theme Configurator PRO brings the CSS editing power of Child Theme Configurator to any WordPress Plugin installed on your website by scanning your plugins and creating custom CSS in your Child Themes. Learn more at Why doesn't this work with my [insert vendor here] theme? Some themes (particularly commercial themes) do not correctly load parent template files or automatically load child theme stylesheets or php files. This is unfortunate, because in the best case they effectively prohibit the webmaster from adding any customizations (other than those made through the admin theme options) that will survive past an upgrade. In the worst case they will break your website when you activate the child theme. Contact the vendor directly to ask for this core functionality. It is our opinion that ALL themes (especially commercial ones) must pass the Theme Unit Tests outlined by and ALWAYS TEST CHILD THEMES BEFORE ACTIVATING (See "Preview and Activate"). Will this slow down my site? Child Theme Configurator is designed to add the minimum amount of additional overhead possible and can actually improve performance. For example: Child Theme Configurator creates or updates files that are already being read by the system. On the front-end, there are no database calls so WordPress can run independent of the plugin. In fact, you can remove Child Theme Configurator when you are finished setting up your child themes. Custom styles are applied to a stylesheet file that can be cached by the browser and/or cached and minimized by a performance caching plugin. Because the editor creates mostly "overrides" to existing styles, the file is typically smaller than other stylesheets. The code that drives the editor interface only loads when the tool is being used from the WordPress Admin, including Javascript and CSS. This means that it will not get in the way of other admin pages. The biggest performance hit occurs when you generate the Child Theme files from the Parent/Child tab, but this is a one-time event and only occurs from the WordPress Admin. HELP! I changed a file and now I am unable to access my website or login to wp-admin to fix it! To back out of a broken child theme you have to manually rename the offending theme directory name (via FTP, SSH or your web host contr;
