About This Class

This class is for advanced WordPress users, who are either web developers or want to become a web developer.

It explains the first steps to set up a child theme for WordPress for your site.

Child themes are useful because you can use all the functionality of your existing WordPress theme, and add small design changes without much coding.

You will need to learn some CSS, which will not be covered by this class entirely. But it will get you started to build your own child theme for the site.
