Before making changes to the theme code, we recommend that you install a child theme. This ensures that your changes won’t be lost when updating to a new version. Click the name of your theme below to download its child theme:

Installing and activating your child theme

  1. Download your child theme.
  2. Install / activate the child theme like you would any other theme.
  3. Any future changes you make inside the child theme will automatically take precedence over the “parent”.

Note: WordPress considers a child theme to be an entirely separate theme from the parent with regard to theme options. If you have configured options for the parent theme in the Customizer before installing the child theme, these options will not carry over to the child. You can either configure the options again for the child theme, or try to migrate the theme options using a plugin such as Theme Customizations Cloner.
