Support » Theme: HoneyPress » Making custom changes

  • Hi,

    what if i make custom changes in styles or functions.php. Will this files be overwritten if an update of the theme is available? What is the best way to make changes and protect this changes from updates?

    For CSS i know i can use the customizer and add aditional css, but want to make my changes in a file for using with git.

    Thanks for contacting us!

    To make changes and protect this from updates, create a child theme and do the changes on it so that once you update the theme the changes will not be lost.

    Thanks

    Hi @rishi911

    thank you for your informations.
    I use the honeypress dark and this is a child theme of the honeypress theme. Is this right? In the readme i found this:

    Honeypress Dark is the child version of the HoneyPress theme.

    Can i make a child theme from a child theme?

    Hi,

    Yes, HoneyPress Dark is a child theme.
    You can’t make a child theme from a child theme.
    Kindly take a backup of the custom changes and update the theme.

    Thanks

    Hi @rishi911

    this is not very bulletproof. If the customer makes an update then the complete css is broken until copying the css file again.
