Build your own WordPress Twenty Sixteen Child Theme

Child themes are very popular these days. We will create a simple child theme for the Twenty Sixteen, one of the main standard WordPress themes.

To get started we will create a folder and we will name it twentysixteen-child . Then we will create a style.css inside this folder.

Just zip and upload your newly created child them. This should be enough to enable child theme editing. An alternative way to do it is to create a function.php  inside the same folder that enqueues the main theme style.css just like this:

By doing this you don’t have to do the @import  in the CSS file. Just for the sake of appearance, you can also include a sceenshot.png  file inside your folder before uploading it.

Simple as that, enjoy.
