    Could you the purpose of functions.php template and how I would use it?

    I created my own theme and have adapted most all the pages included in the default style. Do I need to copy the functions.php file into my new theme directory? Will I need to have this file at the present or in the future if I add some plugins or whatever?

    Thanks.

    I don't believe a functions.php is necessary for a theme (e.g. wp-content/themes/classic). But functions.php is a place to house any functions you use in your theme or admin of your theme (e.g. to help widgetize a theme).
