#12787 closed enhancement (fixed)

New Child Themes article in Codex, to be linked from the Grand Unified Upgrader

Description

Now that the Grand Unified Upgrader recommends using child themes for modifications, I thought it was time we added a Child Themes article to the Codex.

Here’s the first draft:

http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

The attached patch changes the link in upgrade-core.php to point the the above article.

Feel free to edit and improve the article. It needs some work for clarity and brevity (the draft turned out longer than I expected), but I believe it will be fine by the time WP 3.0 is out.

I also moved the codex link to inside the translation, as some translators may wish to replace that with a link to a corresponding localized codex page.

Replying to nacin:

I also moved the codex link to inside the translation, as some translators may wish to replace that with a link to a corresponding localized codex page.

It's good to make the link translatable so they can translate the codex page and link to the translation.

Usually we do it as a separate translation with a context comment - well I do anyway makes it translatable but translators only have to worry about it if they translate the linked article.

(In [13972]) Make the link a seperate translation so people only have to translate it if they really want to. See #12787.
