Editing your WordPress child theme’s stylesheet

Thanks! Share it with your friends!



EDITING YOUR WORDPRESS CHILD THEME’S STYLESHEET: Now that we have a dedicated stylesheet for our child theme, we need to edit it appropriately.

In this video, I explain what each line of the sample code means, and how to edit it with your own child theme information. (If you haven’t already cut-and-pasted the boilerplate code into your child theme’s stylesheet, I’ve provided the sample code as a downloadable file for your convenience.)

Let’s get coding!


This is a sample video from the online course “WordPress Child Themes for Beginners,” available here: http://child-themes.robobunnyattack.com

Learn how to create your own WordPress child theme to change the look and style of your website in this series of tutorials aimed at beginner web developers.

WordPress is web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. It’s the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.

In this course, we’ll talk about when, where and why to use a child theme, what tools you need to create your own child theme, and how to properly set up and edit your child theme. These tutorials are suitable for “advanced beginner” learners who are comfortable using WordPress, know some basic HTML/CSS, and are familiar with using FTP software.

WHAT’S INCLUDED? This course includes step-by-step videos, downloadable sample files, and links to helpful resources.

– “Advanced beginners” who are already familiar with WordPress and have some basic HTML/CSS skills
– Web designers seeking to strengthen their WordPress skills
– Learners of all ages who want to REALLY understand how child themes work in WordPress —- not just memorize a series of steps!
