1.2 Customize Your WordPress Site With a Child Theme

In this lesson, I'll show you how to create a child theme to modify the WordPress Twenty Sixteen theme. You'll create a stylesheet for tweaking individual elements, and an archive template file which will override the file from the parent theme.

Code Snippet

The following commented-out text in style.css sets up a child theme for customizing Twenty Sixteen. Note the Template line especially, that is where the parent theme is declared.
