I've recently discovered Child Themes, and while I understand them in principle, I don't really know how applicable it is to me based on how I currently use WordPress. I'm hoping that by asking the question of when should I use a Child Theme that someone might be able to give me some insight?
Currently my team and I design custom websites and then convert them to code. We have a pre-built theme that is based off Twenty Eleven but contains extra directories relevant to our clients (like a "psd" directory), etc...
So far, to me it seems that if I create a child theme based on Twenty Eleven that the layout will have to remain the same, which is obviously unacceptable if I'm creating custom designed sites.
So can anyone enlighten me a bit about how I might be able to apply usage of Child Themes into my existing workflow? Thank you!!
