    I’m trying to create a child theme for the choices theme. I followed all steps like described here

    But when I view the live preview, all my theme options are somehow canceled. I get the standard blue layout. Is this normal behaviour? I’d like to adjust some of the template files, but I don’t want to lose all settings in the Theme Options.

    Thanks for your help.


    Hi Ann-Sophie,

    Theme options are tied to the theme name with wordpress. So when you change from “choices” to “choices-child” or any other name besides choices all of the theme specific settings are pulled from the database entry for the new theme name.




    Hi, I currently am in the process of developing the theme with Choices. I want to create a child theme before I update to 1.9. What is the best way to do this? I imagine I would have to copy some files from Choices Parent theme over to the Child theme? Any detailed instructions you can point me to would be great, thanks! Evan


    Hi cybermed,

    I did a video on creating a child theme for Enfold which you can follow to do the same thing with Choices:
