All Equity Child Themes

What is a child theme?

A child theme is a kind of WordPress theme that relies upon a framework (parent theme) to operate. This child theme is built for the Equity framework. Equity must be installed for this child theme to work.

What is Equity and do I need it?

Equity is a WordPress framework, otherwise known as a parent theme. It provides the base functionality for child themes.

All of our child themes require Equity to be installed in order for them to work.

If you don’t already own a copy of Equity, you can buy it here.

Do your themes come with IDX?

Although our themes work with many third-party IDX providers, they don’t come with IDX.

You will need to get that service from a company like IDX Broker.

What if I don’t have an IDX?

Equity themes will work with or without an IDX service. If you don’t have an IDX, we recommend that you install the IMPress Listings plugin so that you can manually enter your listings for display.

What IDX services work with Equity child themes?

Equity child themes are designed to work with IDX Broker, but will also work with nearly any third-party IDX provider. Simply follow the IDX provider’s instructions on how to integrate their service into a WordPress website.

How many websites can I create using a child theme?

There is no limit on the number of websites you can create with your theme. Put it on as many of your websites as you would like.

What are the system requirements to use your child themes?

Much like any website, you’ll need to own a domain and have WordPress with the Equity framework installed on a web host provider.

Here are the recommended system requirements:


We recommend a managed WordPress host, like WP Engine for hosting. While other hosting providers claim that they can run WordPress, we have seen a number of issues caused by an inferior hosting environment. The minimum requirement for a hosting provider is a Linux server, with PHP version 5.4 or greater, and MySQL version 5.0 or greater (LAMP server).


WordPress 4.3 or greater

If your site is running a WordPress version less than 4.3, you will need to update WordPress before installing Equity and the child theme.
