My first video I showed you how to create a child theme but not much else.

My first video I showed you how to create a child theme but not much else.

In this video I start off with an empty child theme based on Twenty Seventeen and make the following modifications.

  1. Use CSS to customize the default appearance of the logo image.
  2. Add a function that allows shortcodes to work in post excerpts
  3. Disable Google Fonts imported by the parent theme
  4. Self host fonts

All of which either overrides the parent or enhances the website

If you would like to follow along you can download the theme created for this video.
