Standard Child Theme Kit


This is a "getting started" child theme kit for Standard, crafted by 8BIT.

The Standard Child Theme Kit requires Standard 3.


Note: Standard 3 must be installed first for the Standard Child Theme Kit to work correctly.

There are two ways to install WordPress themes / child themes: via the WordPress Dashboard (recommended) and via FTP.

Using the WordPress Dashboard

  1. Download the Standard Child Theme Kit.
  2. Locate the "Appearance" menu.
  3. In the "Appearance" menu, click on "Themes".
  4. On the "Themes" page, click on the "Install Themes" tab.
  5. Click on the "Upload" link at the top of the page.
  6. On the "Upload" page, locate the theme / child theme archive (zip) on your computer and click "Install Now".
  7. On the following page, click "Activate".

Using FTP

  1. Download the Standard Child Theme Kit.
  2. Unzip the archive on your computer.
  3. Connect to your server via FTP.
  4. Upload the extracted eightbit-standard-child-theme-kit directory to the /wp-content/themes/ directory on your server.
  5. In the WordPress Dashboard, navigate to the "Themes" page under the "Appearance" menu.
  6. Locate "Standard Child Theme Kit" and click "Activate".


Find the style.css file for the Standard Child Theme Kit and locate the "Customizations" section. You can add your own styles under this section to override the styles that come with Standard.

If you happened to name Standard 3 theme directory anything else besides "standard" when you installed the theme, you will need to update the "Template" name and the @import path in the Standard Child Theme Kit's style.css in order for it to work correctly.
