    hi guys,

    i understand how to create a child theme with the style.css. but what shall I do when I edit the .php files? shall i copy them into the new folder of my child theme?

    i am afraid that when updating WP all those changes will disappear. Thank you.

    You should not edit anything in the original theme – only copies of the files that you have ported over to the child theme.

    thank you.

    sorry to bother again. i’ve just created a child theme but cannot see it in the wordpress dashboard>appearence>themes

    i’ve done everything following the guide but tonight so far. the theme is called asteria Lite.

    any hint?
