WordPress. The holy grail of the Web 2.0 business and personal blog content management. If you need an easy fix, WordPress is the go-to solution. You could even buy web themes for your blogs (I’ve been selling lots of these; sometimes my main source of income). However, Orbisius’ Child Theme Creator is something else. You know why?
You Don’t Have To Know Jack About Coding
Okay, so how does a theme creator not need any knowledge from PHP or web design programming? You just click a button and presto!
But wait, isn’t that how the other WordPress themes actually install? We definitely search for it, look for the Install and Activate link and we get the same results?
The difference is that Orbisius Child Theme enables you to create spinoff themes from that parent theme you just installed.
For example, you need a logo for that new website you have. The child theme creator just does it for you. All you need to do is upload the logo and voila!
You wouldn’t need to use some complex PHP. Orbisius and other developers even post some snippets of codes you could use for your website. Sweet!
What I like about the version 1.2.5 of Orbisius’ epic creator is that you could edit two themes at once.
For any web designer, you could say that “it’s impossible” because the flow of your mind must always be going at a straight line.
Wrong. In the real world of web designing, I would definitely say multitasking is the key! Editing two themes at once also allows for great time saving and efficiency.
Its Multisite features are also awesome. Having a multisite helps because it makes creating slight modifications of themes for different websites easier to manage.
One last thing I love about it is that it has an easy to use interface. Remember, you don’t have to know coding to excel in it.
Like every other good thing, The Child Theme Creator has some troubles too. Sometimes, it could mess with your PHP files.
One example is when I used the theme creator and I happened to mess up the child and parent theme’s header.php, which showed something of the makings of a disaster. Instead of saving time, I ended up having to put in extra time to correct the situation.
Before the update, I was also disappointed about how it required me to rename my child theme folder instead of renaming it while I’m already working on it. It sucks time off of me, and I didn’t like it. Thank God for Version 1.2.5!
Orbisius’ Child Theme Creator definitely deserves a five-star rating and four thumbs from me. The possibility of creating another theme without having to go through some complicated PHP is useful not just for beginners looking to have a pretty good website, but for other users looking to significantly save time in developing websites and themes. Give it a go, and tell me all about it in the comments section!
