This plugin allows you to quickly edit theme files from Appearance > Orbisius Theme Editor (entry added by the same plugin)
It features two editors and you can pick snippets from one theme and paste into another.
We’ve just released the
Pro Addon which improves on the current functionality.
We have noticed that some child themes created by this plugin do not work as expected.
This is not a bug in this plugin but could be caused by theme authors using custom theme frameworks and/or do not using WordPress’ recommended functions for themes that support child themes.
Please check with the created of the theme first to see if their theme supports child themes.

Do you need any WordPress work done? e.g. WordPress tweaks, new plugin development or existing plugin improvements.
Do you need a trusted WordPress Developer to hire?
currently, only via ftp.
Just install the plugin and activate it. Then go to Admin > Appearance > Orbisius Child Theme Creator.
Then click on a theme and the plugin will create a child theme for you.
Yes, you can, however, the plugin comes with a double editor which is pretty awesome.
It allows you to copy and paste from one theme to another without changing screens.
Just put this line right after the first <?php tag in the wp-config.php. This will also remove the WordPress’ Theme/Plugin editors as well.
The theme should have an option to do that.
Please, check the customizer or within the admin area for a menu that matches the theme’s name.
Our plugin doesn’t know how each theme works so it’s better to direct those kind of questions to the theme designer.
OK. Please contact the theme author if his/her theme is child theme friendly.
Also which files does the theme need in order to work well.
[email protected][email protected]!$. Ok. Calm down. When you created the theme did you click on copy functions.php from advanced options?
Ok. You’ll need to use FTP client and go to in the wordpress folder and then wp-content/themes/AAAAA-child-01/ and delete functions.php
AAAAA is of course the directory of your parent theme.
Please use Orbisius Theme Editor (part of this plugin)
