Great information and will be a big help. I am getting ready to buy a style for my new XF site and knew about wanting to create a child but didn't know about a child of that. I never thought about this. Thanks for the guide.
A very helpful guide, the process is very well explained and easy to understand. It just shows that laying the foundations makes things a whole lot easier going forward. Thanks!
Will save a lot of time if followed. Well documented, and thorough. There is not much else to say, thank you.
EXCELLENT TUTORIAL: This is a must read even for seasoned developers. It is a good reminder that keeping it simple can be best. No need to create a new theme every time a upgrade comes along, just make a child of the parent theme.
Excellent! Mike is an excellent theme designer. This guide is really detailed and very helpful. I went from not knowing how to upgrade, to knowing everything needed to perform my first upgrade in a matter of minutes. Thank you for all your hard work.
Thank you, very useful.
Excellent guide on organizing themes!
Well written and to the point.
Very helpful, thank you!
Brilliant :)
