You've probably heard that if you want to modify a theme, you should create a child theme instead of changing files in the parent theme. And you've probably wondered why that's the case and how to actually go about creating a child theme.
In this meetup, we'll cover child themes. We'll talk about why you'd want o create a child theme instead of modifying a theme, when to know if you should create a child theme, and how to go about creating a child theme.
The presentation slides and a sample child theme will be available for download after the meetup. Feel free to bring a laptop to follow along with the code examples given during the meetup, but it is by no means necessary.
Our sponsor, ING Direct is graciously hosting us in their cafe meetup space and offering beverages.
