Child Theme Creation On Already Modified Site (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I downloaded a premium theme and started to make edits such as backgrounds, menus etc....

    I then read that I should really be doing this through a child theme. I therefore created a child theme and started by referencing the style.css file back to the parent folder.

    When I activated the child theme however, all of the changes I had made to the parent theme disappeared. I then reactivated the parent theme, and they all came back.

    My question is why is this happening? Shouldn't the changes I have already made be reflected in the parent theme style.css and therefore should appear when I activate the child theme given this is just referencing the parent theme style.css?

    Many thanks for your help.

    You need to ask the theme's vendor/author as we do NOT support premium themes here.
