On wpMorphed.com you can find several mods, hacks and ClassiPress Child Themes for your business site. It’s highly recommended to use all those modifications and hacks inside a child theme to avoid losing your work after updating the parent ClassiPress software to a newer version.
I assume you have ClassiPress already purchased, succesfully installed and activated. If not, start doing it from here:
Now that ClassiPress is installed and running (and before we do anything else) you need a child theme. You don’t have one? No problem, let’s create:
ClassiPress Child Themes
What you (always) need:
– FTP Client (installed on your Windows computer)
– Notepad++ (installed on your Windows computer)
Let’s start with creating the necessary files. Open your Editor (Notepad++) and paste the following code inside:
Theme Name: My ClassiPress Child Theme
Theme URI: http://wpmorphed.com/
Description: My child theme for the ClassiPress theme
Author URI: http://wpmorphed.com/
Save the above as a Cascade Style Sheet type (css) and call it style.css
Open a new file in your Notepad++ and paste the following code inside:
* Child Theme functions file
* @wpMorphed.com Tutorials
// You can add you own actions, filters and code below here.
Save the above as a PHP Hypertext Preprocessor type (php) and call it functions.php
Now open your FTP Client (FileZilla) and move to your /yourwebsite/wp-content/themes/ folder. Inside that folder you will also see the original ClassiPress main theme. But we don’t touch that one! Create a new folder and call it classipress-childtheme
Mark the two files that you have created before and copy them inside the new /wp-content/themes/classipress-childtheme/ folder. Copy the following screenshot and upload it also to the /wp-content/themes/classipress-childtheme/ folder.
Now create another folder inside your classipress-childtheme folder and call it images
Upload or copy all your images from /classipress/images/ to /classipress-childtheme/images/
You are done! Time to activate your own new child theme. Go to your WordPress Admin area and move to Appearance => Themes. You will now see your new child theme somewhere listed. Just click on “Activate” That’s it!
You are now running your own Child Theme!
