Select Suffusion Child Themes Options

Step 1 ) Go to Appearance -> Suffusion Options -> Back-end -> Child Themes menu. See image below.


Step 2 ) The following image Inherit styles? allows you to select from one of the following options.

  • Inherit all stylesheets corresponding to the theme selection (You don’t need any @import in your style.css) (Important = this is the option that you should select. Nowadays most browsers don’t like to use @import.)
  • Don’t inherit any stylesheet (all inclusions will be done using @import tags in your child theme’s style.css. Use this if you don’t want any pre-defined color scheme)


That is all you have to do to activate the child theme in Suffusion.
