Create child themes from any non-child theme with the click of a button.

This plugin is multisite compatible; if used on a multisite network, controls for creating child themes will be in the network admin instead of the regular site admin. Pick the parent theme from the dropdown and name name your new child theme. You can also change the author name and select files you want to copy from the parent to the new theme.

Click the button and you’re all set!
