Hi! I am Adesina, but you can call me Adi for short. I am a child – and a visual representation of this site and it’s child themes. When you see me in the Child Theme Store I am typically providing additional information and helpful tips. My name means “the first of many children”.
About The Child Theme Store
Just like our little friend Adi’s name, the Child Theme Store is here to provide you “the first of many (theme) children”. We showcase, display, promote, review, use and sell Child Themes. To be able to provide you with this extensive variety of child and parent theme (the parents are the theme framework) products, we have partnered with many of the original theme framework companies. We believe having all the child themes in one marketplace is convenient and smart. And we think you are going to think so too.
Child themes always require a parent theme framework – the child’s particular parent theme framework, to be installed in order to function. It is important to understand this concept clearly. This means that if you don’t already have the parent theme framework and want to use the child theme, you may also need to purchase the parent theme framework. The two are very separate but work together. Just remember that every child needs a parent. You might be wondering why on earth would you want to use both a child and a parent theme framework?
According to the WordPress codex (codex is just a fancy way of saying, the documentation area), a child theme is a theme that inherits the functionality of another theme, called the parent or theme framework, and allows you to modify, or add to, the functionality of that parent theme framework. So, what exactly does that mean? It means that you can keep your sites more secure, intact and easily be able to upgrade your theme framework (the parent) when the improvements and changes occur and NOT have to worry about overwriting the tweaks you had made to the style (the child) to get your site looking just the way you wanted it.
Using a child and a parent theme framework sounds much more complicated than it actually is. It is really easy and can all be done right in your WordPress dashboard. First, install the parent theme framework. You don’t even need to activate it. Then, install and activate your child theme. That is it. We told you it was easy.
The Child Theme Store
Whether you are a business owner in need of a new website or an established web designer looking for some fresh starting points, the Child Theme Store has organized everything for you to be able to find the perfect child theme for all of your website desires – wants and needs. You can easily find what you need using our site search. Don’t care for searches? Use our index. We also support a new arrivals showcase and we even have a compilation with each parent theme’s children. It doesn’t get much easier to find exactly what you need.
When using the site search, you can search by child name, parent theme framework, color or anything else you can think of. If you think a particular tag is perfect for a theme, let us know and we can add that tag to help others find what you found when they search next time.
The Child Theme Store index is a list an alphabetical list with a link to each child theme’s details. After the detail link you will find the type parent theme framework to match to the child theme. As well as links to theme reviews to help you make educated decisions during your purchasing process. EXAMPLE: Child Theme Name | Type Parent theme framwork | Link to Read Review. It is like those hand stamps kids get at Chuckie-Cheezes to be sure the right parent is taking the right kid home. Matching makes it simple.
The New Child Theme Arrivals area will always have the most recent releases that we are aware of. We are always looking for and finding new child themes to offer. This showcase contains the most recent themes produced by both the original parent theme framework companies as well as third party developers and are displayed in the order of the child theme release date. It is going to be interesting watching how often this display will be changing. We suspect this is going to be a busy place!
We also have individual parent theme framework collection displays. These displays shows all of the child themes developed by any developers for a specific parent theme framework. If you already own a parent theme , then this is the easiest way to find a new child theme.
Our store is a good place to start if you are looking to build a website and a great place to end up when you know you will find exactly what you need.
