Video covers everything you need to know about child themes for your wordpress website in 2016 such as:

– The original (old) method of making a child theme 2:48
– The new method WordPress now recommends 13:20 (both methods are really easy if you watch the video. You should watch old method, then new because they build on eachother)
– How and where to add CSS to your child theme
– How to add functions.php to your child theme
– How to add files like footer.php and customize theme in your child theme

Longer video but generally the idea is that you won’t learn this much on wordpress child themes in as little time anywhere else. Enjoy!
