A Child Theme is specifically for developers who are willing to make changes to the critical functions and codes. If you do not intend to go that far, you can always ignore this lesson or chapter.
In the theme package, you will see materials required for Child Theme. It’s found in the “uphome-child.zip” archive. You can install child theme in a similar way as you install main theme.
A handful of recommendations on how to use Child Theme:
In the child theme, almost all files from main theme can be replaced. It doesn’t concern or affect only .php-files with templates and basic logics, but also .js and .css files from resapective files and folders with images, icons etc..
If you are thinking about changing some functions of the theme or adding new ones, you have to create file ‘functions.php’ in the “ryse-child” folder, and add all requisite functions into it. If our WordPress theme has functions with such names, they will be replaced by yours, if not – your functions will complete the logics of our theme.
