Tell me more…
Child themes are a simple but powerful way to customize a pre-made theme. Learning how to use them properly means you’ll never risk losing all your modifications when the developer releases a new version and you update the theme. Using easy-to-follow language, I’ll walk you through the steps to set up a child theme on your laptop’s WordPress installation and we’ll make some tweaks together – from CSS adjustments to more substantial changes in functionality.

This workshop is suitable for:
– You should be comfortable with HTML and CSS basics, and have at least a general sense of WordPress theme file structure.
– Some beginner PHP knowledge is helpful but not required.

Additional Information:
The workshop instruction will be in English but there will be bilingual TAs and questions are welcome in French or English.

Bring a laptop to follow along with the practical portion of the workshop.

You’ll need a fresh localhost install of WordPress set up on your laptop – we recommend MAMP for both Macs and PCs. Please have your local install of WP ready in advance. If you run into any trouble, we’ll help you finish your setup in the first part of the workshop.

Since most of the session is hands-on, if you aren’t able to bring a laptop, this workshop won’t be ideal for you.

This is a hands-on workshop. A special ticket to this event is required. Space is limited.
