List of child themes

Introduction

In version 2.7, child themes have been introduced in WordPress. Using Child themes, you can modify (override) all aspects of a Parent theme (e.g. the stylesheet, page templates, functions) without risking to lose any modifications when upgrading the parent theme.

See iThemes and Child Themes – introduction and Child Themes, a quick tutorial.

Child Theme Graphics can also be seen here and here.

Listed below are the child themes of Builder that can be downloaded from the member's area (latest at the top):

Live Demo

A quite stunning in its bold-yet-minimalist style. Similar to its related (sister?) theme Covell, Covert uses a minimalist, monochromatic style, but one that allows photographers and artists to display their work in a more dramatic and darker style.

Covert also includes 2 distinct navigation styles, making it easy to portray just the amount of "minimalism" you want, as well as the custom projects post type, making project organization and display a snap.
