Per your advice, I've finally gotten around to using a child theme to make some customizations to your already wonderful theme. :) When I activate the child theme, all of the color customizations that I had set up (via the Theme-->Customize link, not by editing the CSS) revert back to the default. Is there a way to avoid this, or will I have to go back and customize them again? If I do have to customize them again, do I have to do it in the child theme CSS, or is the Customize link still available?
Also, how can I change the color of the line separators in the right sidebar or remove them altogether? (This is a good example of why I should have been using a child theme all along--I made this change before and forgot how to do it!) If I want to remove a portion of the CSS that is in the parent theme, is there some way to do this in the child theme, or does the parent still need to be edited?
Thanks in advance!
