    I was told you can use the plugin "child themify" or child theme configurator to create child themes. Your video says go through the Cpanel. Which is the best one to use?

    Greetings from the UK,

    I just wanted to say a thank you for your video. After reading through the WP Codex I was a little confused but your video was clear and concise and most importantly worked without adding another plugin.
