Support » Theme: Fifteen » Child Theme Confusion

  • I’ve finished designing my site and am ready to go live. Since I didn’t have an existing site and built it from scratch I didn’t use a Child Theme (also because I am confused by them).

    Can I/should I create a Chile Theme for any changes going forward? If I create a Child Theme now will it contain a mirror image of what I’ve built already? I’m kind of thinking of it like “Save As” that creates and identical copy but separate from the original. I’m guessing this is not correct but am I close?

    I’m afraid to move forward for fear of losing any work I’ve done. Thank you!

    Don’t worry first of all you need to backup you site always when you think that is needed or set regular back for that, then yes child theme its important and you think that something might crash in your theme, and to avoid that make a child theme, but the back it will fix that also try CPanel its great tool to keep on it backup or install some good plugin for that.

    I can help you and provide you with anything you need to complete your quest

    Thank you. So if I create a Child Theme right now it will create an identical copy of the site I created with all of my changes?
