Plugin Information

Child Theme Configurator is a fast and easy to use utility that allows you to analyze any theme for common problems, create a child theme and customize it beyond the options of the Customizer. Designed for WordPress users who want to be able to customize child theme stylesheets directly, Child Theme Configurator lets you easily identify and override the exact CSS attributes you want to customize. The Analyzer scans the rendered theme and automatically configures your child theme. It correctly enqueues theme and font stylesheets for optimum performance and handles vendor-specific syntax, giving you unlimited control over the Child Theme look and feel while leaving your Parent Theme untouched.

Excellent and easy to use plugin

By migmor on May 17, 2023

I have used it on several occasions, and it has always worked well for me. It deserves 5 stars.

Worked flawlessly

I wish I can give more than 5 stars. I completed a site and then realized it would be a good idea to create a child theme. I was afraid I will lose a lot of customizations. I used one plugin for another site but I ended up to manually redoing all the stylings. But this config plugin did EVERYTHING. Once I created the child theme the plugin does everything I wanted.

easy to use

easy and fast

I'm using wordpress 6.0.2 and it worked perfectly. Many plugins copy the original theme, but this one also copies all the adjustments you made in the original theme, so that the child looks exactly like the original. And then you can start over with the advantages of a child theme.

Took all the pain out of creating a Child Theme, and let me get on with doing the things I wanted the Child Theme for in the first place.

One of the most useful plugins

This plugin forces stylesheets to browser cache

By sgumby on June 8, 2022

I've complained about this in a support thread and nothing seems to have been done. This is a big problem because you wouldn't expect a plugin doing CHILD THEMES to care about caching the style sheets. So you'll spend hours trying to figure out why your stylesheet changes are not updating......and duh.......its the CACHE from THIS PLUGIN. This is the function that does the damage.
add_filter( 'style_loader_src', 'chld_thm_cfg_version', 10, 2 );

function chld_thm_cfg_version( $src, $handle ) {
    // only filter links for current theme
    if ( is_child_theme() && strstr( $src, get_stylesheet() ) && ( $ver = wp_get_theme()->Version ) )
        $src = preg_replace( "/ver=(.*?)(&|$)/", 'ver=' . $ver . "$2", $src );
    return $src;
THIS IS NOT A NEEDED FEATURE!!! If anyone is needing a work around this seems to do the trick. Add to the child theme functions. I also added . "style.css" because if you are developing with a dev domain with the name of the child theme in the domain (which I often am) then this plugin also ads versions to EVERY SCRIPT instead of just the child css. Adding the extra match criteria makes this hack more likely to only effect the child css.
add_filter( 'style_loader_src', 'fix_child_theme_version', 10, 2 );

function fix_child_theme_version( $src, $handle ) {
    // only filter links for current theme
    if ( is_child_theme() && strstr( $src, get_stylesheet() . "/style.css" ) && ( $ver = time() ) )
        $src = preg_replace( "/ver=(.*?)(&|$)/", 'ver=' . $ver . "$2", $src );
    return $src;
I have an other solution posted in the support thread that works also.
