How to create wordpress child theme?

To customize any wordpress theme, the preffered approach by wordpress experts is by creating its child theme.

Creating wordpress child theme is so, easy.

Here, I am creating a child theme for twentyeleven theme, and doing some customization i.e. changing site heading and descriptions fonts/color etc.

  • Create a folder with in theme folder.  (Ex: wp-content/themes/twentyeleven-child).
  • Create style.css file in this newly created folder. (Ex: wp-content/themes/twentyeleven-child/style.css).
  • Add following code in style.css:

    Theme Name:     Twenty Eleven Child
    Theme URI:      http: //
    Description:    Child theme for the Twenty Eleven theme
    Author:         Muhammad Farhan
    Author URI:     http: //
    Template:       twentyeleven
    Version:        0.1.0
    @import url("../twentyeleven/style.css");

    #site-title a {
    font: 30px "Bookman Old Style";
    #site-description {
    font: 14px "Bookman Old Style";

  • Note: There must be no other CSS rules above the @import rule. If you put other rules above it, it will be invalidated and the stylesheet of the parent will not be imported.
  • Now go to admin -> Dashboard -> Appearance -> Themes.
  • Here you find your newly created child theme i.e. (Twenty Eleven Child). Just, activate this theme.
  • that’s it ; – ). All done…. Now customize your theme as you want.
  • Required / Optional files for your child theme:
    1. style.css (required)*
    2. functions.php (optional)
    3. Template files (optional)
    4. Other files (optional)
