Updating WP or Themes and specialized widget content (3 posts)

    I understand for the main themes a child-theme is created to make design / function changes to the main theme so as to preserve the changes every time WordPress or the theme is updated.

    When I am inserting HTML in a text widget, will these changes be preserved after updating WordPress and/or the theme?

    What are best practices to insure these changes are not overwritten during an update?

    Thanks

    If you are using a child theme, in most cases the changes will be preserved. It can happen otherwise if there are conflicts with the original theme, plugins, WP core, etc.
