What is WordPress Child Theme?
It is the theme that possesses the functionality of the parent theme which is a core. The child theme can be modified according to your needs. In order to change the style of this theme, you take the style files, overwrite properties and leave other files unchanged.
How to Get a Child Theme?
Use FTP (or other file management application from your host) for creating a directory, put a correctly formatted style.css file in it, and that’s all.
You’ll notice the child theme by the “Template: parent-theme-dir” header. When creating a child theme (everything you need is a basic knowledge of HTML and CSS), you’re able to modify the styling and layout of a parent as you like, the files of the latter one will remain unchanged. Even when the parent theme is updated, all your changes are saved.
Go to the WordPress folder wp-content/themes to find the child theme in the separate folder. Its name can vary, but the folder should contain the file style.css (the only required file of the child theme).
Bootstrap hit the market in 2011, and caused a real craziness all over the web. People started creating Bootstrap based websites, and today their number grows. What’s the secret of its popularity? This sleek intuitive and powerful front-end framework makes life of web masters much easier. If you look in it deeper, you can find the following great features inside:

- Framework + child theme.
- Easy sample data install.
- Framework update.
Cherry themes are presented in several archives: one includes framework files i.e. parent theme, another one – child theme files. Child theme inherits functionalities of the parent theme, and allows you to modify it by adding any possible functionalities.

Welcome our hot-boiling Joomla 3.0 Bootstrapped Themes that will impress you by their cutting-edge designs and advanced features. The main hallmark of this line is that each theme is based on the Bootstrap framework what makes it fully responsive to all screen resolutions. But this is not the only new thing in this collection.
Main Changes in Joomla 3.0 Templates::
1. The new version of Joomla has lots of improvements in PHP classes and functions. So that’s why the method used in Joomla 2.5 will not work for Joomla 3.x. You can check the compatibility list at Joomla Docs.
2. As for the basic changes, the regular frame was changed to Bootstrap and there is no need for Gantry Framework and K2.
3. Joomla templates are built on Bootstrap CSS Framework. Page layout uses 1152px, 1132px, 1116px and 1104px grids, though previous versions of Joomla templates have 940px wide layout.
Coming from this, we can make the conclusion that Joomla 3.x templates are not compatible with previous versions of Joomla and will be developed as a separate product.
What New Features Joomla 3.0 Themes Deliver:
• The gallery is presented as a single page having four columns;
• There is no support for comments;
• All side extensions like Gantry and K2 were removed;
• All Joomla 3.0 themes are responsive and are based on the 1152px wide grid, the width of the content area is changeable and is adaptive;
