Developed by Elegant Themes, Divi has become one of the most popular and customizable WordPress themes on the market. Divi ships with a robust set of features and the custom Divi Builder, the Divi theme can be styled and molded to meet the needs of just about any website development project. Our blank Divi child theme aims to make Divi even more powerful by abstracting any customizations from the original source.
At Zipline, we often use the Divi theme as a base to create robust, custom designed websites powered by WordPress. We love the flexibility and ease of use of the Divi Builder and have found it to be an excellent resource and simple for our clients to learn.
Occasionally, on more complex projects, it becomes necessary to add some custom CSS or other associated code even with the extreme customizability of Divi. When code customization is required, we use a child theme to help ensure forward compatibility of our modifications. Our blank Divi child theme is a great, easy to install tool designed to work with any Divi installation.
You can download our blank Divi child theme at GitHub.
WordPress child themes are designed to inherit the functionality and styling of the parent theme. Child themes are WordPress’ preferred method for modifying an existing theme while still allowing them to be updated through the standard WordPress update process. The child theme process abstracts customizations like CSS changes by appending those to the existing document. Child themes also allow overwriting of single theme files, making customizing a theme much cleaner and simpler.
If you’re not already using child themes with your WordPress projects, you can learn more about the child theme concept on the WordPress website.
