Support » Plugin: Child Theme Wizard » Parent Theme Updates – Change Child Theme?

    (@acontino)


    When a theme update is released for the Parent theme (theme child was created from) and the Parent theme is updated, how do I know if the child theme carries over the updates and the customizations made in the child?

    Or, once the Parent theme is updated, should I just create a new Child Theme?

    What is the best course of action for updating the parent theme and/or child theme?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi acontino, sorry for the late reply – I should check in here more often.

    The way child themes work is that they only override the functionality you’ve provided, but all other theme functionality is executed on the parent theme. Hence, when that’s updated, everything that’s not explicitly overwritten by your child theme will use the updated code. There’s no need to create a new child theme, all you need to do is update the parent theme (at least in 99.9% of all cases).
