If I make changes to any php or css files, should I copy them into the child directory so that they don’t become over written when I update the parent theme?
For the most part, when you want to make a change to something in the parent theme you will add a css rule that overwrites it or a new php function to the child theme.
If you wanted to make a big changes, then you would add the file to the child theme completely. Ex – using a different single.php, the single.php in the child theme will be used instead.
Ok, thanks Devin.
All the stuff that’s in the Quick CSS box – does that get overwritten upon theme updates? Should I put that in a custom css file in the child theme if I don’t want it overwritten?
