    I want to use Simple Catch Pro as a parent theme, to make sure that my customizations don’t get lost on upgrade. Since I guess the directions for creating a child theme will be the same for both the free and the paid version, I am asking the question here so that even users of the free version may benefit from the help I hope to obtain. 🙂


    I am not a WordPress coder – more a user with some limited skills in html and php. So I just want to know how I can create a child theme based on Simple Catch Pro to use as a starting point for my planned customizations. Any help will be highly appreciated.


    Thank you.



    @TJBraatveit: Simple Catch and Simple Catch Pro there have a lot on difference. The directory is also different. So, you have to set style.css in the child theme as below:

    Theme Name: Simple Catch Pro Child
    Theme URI:
    Description: Child theme for the Simple Catch Pro theme
    Author: Catch Themes
    Author URI:
    Template: simple-catch-pro
    @import url("../simple-catch-pro/style.css");


    Thank you very much.
