We are working on a plugin to help you create a Blockbase child theme. The idea is that you can use existing tools to make changes to a Blockbase theme, and then export a bundle of templates and themes. As a new child theme.

Once the theme is created you can unzip the theme zip file and make further changes to the theme files. This may be necessary to make more advanced changes to the theme. You can do this:
We want you to try out this new tool and let us know how you proceed in the comments!
