It is always better to use a child theme while doing changes to the site / theme. But, as a volunteer at the Graphene Theme Support forum, I see so many people struggling to set up a child theme for the Graphene theme. So, I’ve decided to create a child theme template for the Graphene theme.
You can download the child theme template in this page. It has two files. A ready to use
style.css file which is mandatory, and a blank
How to install it?
Download the child theme from the above link. Then go to Appearance –> Themes –> Install Themes and click on Upload. Browse the downloaded theme and hit the Install Now button. Activate the theme in the next step.
Extract the contents of the graphene-child.zip file and upload the graphene-child folder to the wp-content/themes/ directory using FTP. Then go to Appearance –> Themes and Activate the Graphene Child theme.
(If you’re using a custom header image, then, you need to restore the header image after activating the child theme. The same applies to background images and custom menus as well.)
Have any doubts? Feel free to post a comment or create a thread in the Graphene theme support forum.
