[resolved] Custom Page Template (5 posts)

    Is it safe to create a custom page template in a parent theme? It would not be overridden when the theme updates provided that the newer version does not contain a file of the same name as the new custom page template, correct?

    Why would you create it in the parent theme?

    Either use the parent theme as a starter theme that you customise directly, or add templates to the child theme.

    This does not answer my question.

    No. Create a child theme.
