In the video we go through how to create a child theme. I've done this and copied the style .css file from the downloads section into the folder.

Sweet. but now i want to make a child of a different theme. What do i need to change in the style.css file for this to work?

Hi Pete,

If you mean change your child theme to use a different parent theme, you should just need to edit the Template line, e.g.

Template:     twentyfifteen

Here's the info from the Codex.

Hope that helps.
