Installing a Child Theme

Child theme is the best way to customize your theme. If you make changes to the parent theme, all changes will be lost when you update the theme. However, when you use a child theme and make changes to it, all changes will remain even if you update the theme. Installing a child theme is as easy as a regular theme.

  • Click Add New Theme.
  • Click Upload.
  • Click Choose File and select [theme-name]-child.zip file. (This file is inside uploads folder in your downloaded zip file)
  • Click Install Now then Activate.
