What is a child theme?

A child theme is an add-on for an existing WordPress theme. A child theme provides a way for designers to create new designs that inherit the functionality, styling and stability of the framework of another theme, called the parent theme. Imagine the parent theme as a platform to create the design instead of coding everything from scratch, which would take a lot of time!

With a child theme the designer has done all the designing in advance all you have to do is pick your favourite one!
A child theme also gives another level of assurance when your parent theme requires updating. Changes to coding and styling can get written over with the new update of a theme, with a child theme the coding stays the same, so you don’t loose any changes made.

I use Divi as the parent theme.

What is Divi?

Divi is one of the most popular WordPress themes available today made by Elegant Themes. It’s a multipurpose theme, that is suitable for any type of WordPress website. Divi has a powerful drag and drop interface that makes it easy to create and edit web content.

Using a child theme with Divi allows you quickly get the design you want set up and still have all of  Divi features to hand.

Can I buy and install your child themes myself?

Yes you can! If you know WordPress and all about themes, you can buy my child themes and download directly after purchase. The download will come as a zip file that includes, the child theme, instructions and a quick install data importer plug-in.

You’ll need a self hosted version of WordPress and the Divi theme installed.

What is a hexadecimal colour code?

A hexadecimal colour code, or hex code is a combination of 6 numbers and/or letters that starts with a hashtag. #d8af4e is the hex code for the yellow colour you see on my site.

As some people, and browsers, may not agree on colour names, for example one person’s light green maybe another person’s sage green, a hex colour code provides a safe way of communicating a colour exactly. Hex codes are used in a website’s coding and can also be used for print, using a hex colour means your light green will look the same shade on your website and on your business cards.

You can find your colour’s hex code, and complimentary colours here or if you need a bit of inspiration with choosing a colour palette for your brand check out design-seeds.com.

Why do I need an alternative logo and submark?
Sometimes you may find that your logo doesn’t cut the mustard, if your using your logo on various platforms it annoyingly, may not fit the space provided! Having alternative versions allows you to keep your brand consistent across many platforms. Even though it may be a slightly different shape and size than the main umbrella logo, it still keeps the same look and gives you another option to put in other “spaces”.

Submarks are particularly good for round social media profiles and watermarking images.

Waht are placeholders and dummy text?
Each theme has been made with “pretend” content to make it look like a live site. This pretend content is made up from dummy text and images, so that you can see what the website would look like when it has content in it, otherwise it would be empty spaces!

It easy to type over the top of the dummy text and replace the images, so the website keeps the same layout but has all your relevant content in place.
