    Hi Allan. I already installed and activated the Responsive WordPress
    Theme. I have also started using the Appearance Editor and changed things
    around. If I create the Child theme now… is it going to work properly
    or should I go back and undo everything I have already done? Thanks….

    Allan, great tutorials. Very easy even for a newbie like myself. I was
    unable to copy the screenshot.png in c-panel from parent to child but a
    work around is to download it from the parent and then upload to the child
    directory. Responsive

    why or how did the parent theme inherit the changes you made to the
    sreenshot in the child theme?

    Hi Allen, very nice video. Thanks for posting. I have a question – I just
    went through creating the child theme successfully, but it seems to have
    lost its responsiveness. It looks like I may be missing certain divs with
    certain classes, etc. For example, the navigation gets lost when the
    browser window is less than about 530px wide. Not sure what I may have
    missed. Any ideas? http://targmarksolutions.com/wordpress/

    Hello YouthPastorSkid, you can do that except for the functions file. You
    only need files that end in php or css, any others are not needed and only
    files that you edited need to be copied. then you can update your parent
    theme and your child theme will not change. be cautious of file name
    changes in updates and make copies of all files first. Thanks

    Ok Thanks!

    Hi, thanks for this video, i’ve subbed. Do you make video’s on how to
    customise child themes by adding category blog pages? I’m looking for a
    tutorial on how to make each page a blog for a specific category. E.g. all
    posts on laptops, go to the laptops blog page within my theme. At the
    moment, i’ve got one blog page and all my other pages are static. Thanks

    What if I copy all my files from the parent folder into the child theme?
    Will this give me a complete copy of the parent since I have been working
    on my website for a month now?

    Great videos, Allan! Thank you for sharing. I couldn’t believe how easy
    this process is, well the creating of a child theme. I have so many
    questions though. I want to learn how to add decorative images like
    borders, custom images for dates, and even post titles, but I want to add
    it where it’s a permanent decor, part of theme. This is for blogging
    page/posts. Do you have a video like this one? If not, would love to see
    one. 🙂 Thanks. Also, a video on how to add scrips/html/css.

    LOLOLOL, I know I was on the floor after writing it, too funny the way it
    came out.

    I know that tutorial is for, but starting with the version
    a new approach was included for the child theme of Responsive. A major
    error is to include in styles file of the child theme the code: @import
    url(“../responsive/style.css”); The responsive style is broken. See the
    details at the Cyberchimps website for guide and update (the link
    cannot be included here)
