Granite Child Themes
Child Themes for the Granite theme
In order to preserve your original theme, you can use Child Themes to apply modifications to your Granite theme, without having to modify any of the original theme files.
Download the child themes for your version of Granite listed below. Unzip and upload the child Theme to the folder where your Granite theme exists, by default this is the /wp-content/themes/Granite/ folder. Activate the child theme, just as you would activate any other theme. There is a README.TXT included in the child theme with further information.
As an addon feature, the child themes allow you to:
- use the new WordPress 3 menus (WordPress version 3 and up required), and
- use featured posts images, or post thumbnails, as described in this article. Featured images can be added using the featured images option on the write post panel.
