I’m trying to implement a child theme and it appears that what I thought I knew about how they work isn’t accurate.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but what I understand is that the child theme’s style.css OVERRIDES the parent’s style.css, while the child theme’s function.php is APPENDED to the parent’s function.php.
So, does that mean the code in the child’s function.php CANNOT exist in the parent (any differences in the child will simply be added to the parent?) — however, anything in the child’s style.css CAN exist in the parent with the child simply taking precedence over anything that is the same in the parent?
Does that make any sense?
