What is a child theme and why should I use one?
Child themes were created to protect the changes that WordPress users make to their websites. If you make changes to the CSS (the code that controls how your website looks) directly in your theme, those changes are in danger of being erased when new updates are rolled out for that theme.
A child theme is simply a set of files that “pull in” the functionality of the original theme (called the “parent theme”). As long as you make changes in your child theme, those changes will be safe (i.e., they won’t be erased by future updates). If you make changes directly in the parent theme…not so much.
That’s why it’s important to always use a child theme when altering the CSS for your website. For more information about child themes, check out this blog we wrote on the topic.
What is the difference between Aspen Grove Studios' premium child themes and a standard (blank) child theme?
A standard child theme doesn’t come with any changes. It simply gives you a blank canvas where you can make changes to your WordPress site without worrying about having those changes erased at the next update.
A premium child theme from Aspen Grove Studios comes with the changes already made by our amazing team of developers and designers. With premium child themes, practically every detail of web design and development is taken care of, from the layout to the color palette, font selection, and more. You simply install the child theme on top of Divi or Extra and you’re ready to go. You can even customize it however you want. Pretty awesome, right?
What do I get when I buy a child theme?
Each child theme comes with everything you need to create a fantastic, beautiful, high-converting website that your users will love. The specific pages and designs that are included depend on which industry it’s built for, but every child theme comes with all of the core pages that your website will need right out of the box. It’s also super easy to modify your child theme in any way you want, including adding or removing specific pages.
Also, our premium Divi and Extra child themes come with plenty of premium features and powerful additions -- all setup, styled and ready to go -- for example
- Event plugins
- Learning platforms (LMS)
- Appointment booking
- Custom-coded 404 error page
- Archive pages
- Individual post layout and comments section
- Breadcrumb navigation
And much more
How do I choose the right child theme for my website?
As you’ll see, we have themes for a wide variety of industries, like law, fashion, e-commerce, construction…and on and on.
But the truth is that any of our child themes can easily be customized to fit any industry or any business type. Each of our child themes is simply optimized for a specific industry out of the box, so it’s likely to require less work (or no work at all) to get it just right for businesses in that particular field.
Do your child themes only work for one industry?
Absolutely not! See our answer to How do I choose the right child theme for my website? above.
I don’t know how to code. Will I be able to customize my child theme?
In short, yes.
One of the best things about both Divi and Extra is how they allow you to customize your website without having to do much coding if any. Besides, we provide documentation with our child themes that describe in detail how to easily change the colors, images, text, and other elements of your website.
If you want a truly customized website without having to learn how to fiddle with CSS or other coding languages, we also provide custom developed and designed websites, as well as customized child theme installation. Check out our Services page for more information.
I’m looking for a standard, blank Divi child theme. How can I make one of those?
There are several different ways to make a standard child theme for Divi so that you can make your changes to your website. One of the easiest is to use our Child Theme Builder over at Divi Space.
What about support, licensing, and updates?
You have a few different purchasing/licensing options for our child themes, depending on how many websites you want to use your child theme for. Your options are:
- The yearly fee for use on one, three, or unlimited websites
- Annual Membership (includes unlimited websites)
- Lifetime Membership (includes unlimited websites)
Whichever option you choose, you’ll get dedicated 5-star support and free updates for the duration of your license.
Are child themes included in your membership?
Yes! All of our child themes are included in both the Annual and Lifetime membership plans, so if you can’t decide which one you need (or you think you’ll want to use even just a few of our premium child themes with your clients), then membership may be the best option.
Not to mention that you’ll get access to ALL of our premium plugins, layouts, and icons (to use on unlimited websites) along with select courses. All for one low price, no strings attached. If you’re a professional developer or designer using Divi (or you want to be), our membership is a steal.
What if I have a problem or a question about any of the required plugins?
If you have any questions or particular issues with the plugins used along with this child theme, please consult their documentation directly on the developer's website. Here's the link:
