Which method should I use to create a child theme

  • Anonymous


    I am trying to create a child theme for my website. When I go to the WordPress Codex I am instructed to “enqueue the parent and child theme stylesheets” instead of using @import.

    This was the suggested code:

    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'theme_enqueue_styles' );
    function theme_enqueue_styles() {
    wp_enqueue_style( 'parent-style', get_template_directory_uri() . '/style.css' );


    However, since I have more than one style.css it instructs that I “maintain all of the Parent Theme dependencies”. I have absolutely no idea what this means. I was able to easily make a child theme using @import on a test version of my site, but I want to know if that is a safe method before I do the same thing on my main site.

    Or could someone give me an idea of how to maintain all the dependencies, please?

    I found 7 different .css files in the following order:








    Thanks in advance for any help you can give me, and I hope I formatted this question correctly.
