Hi, I'm a developer familiar with creating child themes from wordpress themes, but am new to Pagelines. I've just bought WhitehousePro3 on behalf of a client and would like to tweak a few things if possible, but the way I'd normally create a child theme (as per: http://codex.wordpre...rg/Child_Themes) doesn't work; I understand that Pagelines has moved to a new framework, and so much of the documentation I can find is not relevant to this theme. Is it possible at all to create a child theme for WhitehousePro? And if so, can anyone point me to some documentation? Thanks very much in advance

Simon, our intrepid developer wrote this: http://pross.org.uk/...s-child-themes/ It might help.

Thanks very for your reply rangelone, but the link you mention is a pretty standard way to work with child themes, and suggests the same as the link I posted from the Wordpress codex. The pagelines themes seem to work pretty differently from the standard WP themes I'm used to working with, so maybe it's not possible to customise them as much as I'd like.

Simon did state that link above is how you would create a child theme for WhiteHousePro. Are you running in to any specific issues? Have you followed the instructions exactly?
