The Child is the Father of the Man

I have been doing a lot of experimenting with the thematic wordpress framework recently. I really enjoy working with it as it does make hacking templates a lot easier – and provides a clean slate for styling.

The thematic documentation is sadly lacking, those with bigger balls will look at the code and do thousands of internet searches to find the answers to their questions – however many simply give up; (only to return later when they have no joy hacking a nasty free template).

Overriding templates and functions is the basis of creating a thematic child theme. I have searched many websites and finally found a really good source of information on the correct way of doing this. So here it is, thanks venutip :)
