A WordPress child theme is a WordPress theme that inherits its functionality from another WordPress theme, the parent theme. Child themes are often used when you want to customize or tweak an existing WordPress theme without losing the ability to upgrade that theme. In the past, there was no easy way of updating WordPress themes without losing all the custom styling and changes that you had made. This becomes chaos when all the sudden you find out a widely used script in popular themes has a major exploit, and you need to update your themes ASAP. It becomes a tough choice because on one hand, you would lose all the custom styles if you update. On the other hand, you risk your site getting hacked if you don’t update fast enough. So updating wordress theme is a must and you should never ever directly hack or modify theme files. But wait, what about the modifications?
The core team and the community decided to solve this problem by introducing the concept of parent theme and child theme. A child theme in WordPress would inherit all the functionality, features, and the code of the parent theme without making any changes to the parent theme itself. This allowed users to change the styling of the parent theme and add/modify features without losing the ability to update the parent theme.
It is important to know that even though you can always create a child theme of any WordPress theme, sometimes you may not need a child theme. Think about the number of changes you have planned for your child theme, if the changes you are planning are minor, then you can use custom css option located in theme settings or custom.css file in theme root(you should backup this file and replace after each update). If the changes are too extreme where you find yourself overriding the core parent theme files, then you probably should be creating a custom theme.
Good new is that Directo is fully child theme compatible and you can override almost everything you can imagine. starting from shortcodes to widgets, hooks and filter, blog, portfolio. We have coded theme with this concept that users may need to use it as roubut framework for their ideal website.
In order to create a basic child theme you should follow below steps :
Theme Name: Directo Child Theme
Theme URI: http://designinvento.com/themes/Directo/
Description: This is a child theme build by "your name"
Author URI: http://themeforest.net/user/designinvento/portfolio
/* =Theme customization starts here
Please note that we have already created a sample child theme inside item main folder you download from themeforest.We will update this section with massive wiki on overriding theme’s special places (shortcodes, widgets,..).
