If you’re like me and use WordPress for site development you probably learned early on that if you modify a theme’s CSS the modifications will be lost when you update the theme. The solution is to create and use a child theme. For those not familiar with a child theme, it allows you to modify the style and layout of a parent theme without editing the files of the parent theme so that you keep your theme modifications when the parent theme is updated. Making a child theme is fairly simple but it can be a pain. You have to create a directory and put a properly formatted style.css file in the directory. However, I recently discovered a WordPress plugin called One-Click Child Theme which adds a button to the themes page to allow you to create a child theme for the currently selected theme. You give the child theme a name and description and click “Create Child”.
