    Is there a way to use a different GeneratePress child themes for each multisite? I want to use GP for each site but make each site have its own look. Are there naming rules for child themes?

    Hi Chad,

    It should be as easy as installing multiple child themes and activating each different one on each site individually.

    There’s no naming rules, the top of your style.css just needs to reference the parent theme like this:

    /*
     Theme Name:   GeneratePress Child
     Theme URI:    http://generatepress.com
     Description:  Default GeneratePress child theme
     Author:       Thomas Usborne
     Author URI:   http://edge22.com
     Template:     generatepress
     Version:      0.1
    */

    The only thing above that’s crucial is: Template: generatepress

    Thank you Tom, I didn’t realize the theme name could change.

    Can we elaborate on the steps?

    I have the same doubt: What about a multiple GeneratePress child themes with Premium?

    How can I create the child theme and customize it with GP-Premium so the users of my network can choose between one or another child theme without making any changes?

    I guess I’m trying to follow the same pattern as you with your other themes in the WP.org directory (Mantle, Statement, Forefront, etc…)

    The only way those child themes work is if no Customizer options are saved. They’re based on default values, so if they have actual values, the defaults won’t be used.

    GPP 1.6 will have a new add-on which will make it much easier to accomplish “child themes” πŸ™‚
