Using Child Theme

Every theme comes with a child theme included as part of the main theme package and we recommend to use that child theme and make all future changes in that child theme. This way you can easily update parent theme whenever the new updates becomes available. As, We always try to keep our themes up to date and we also keep adding more and more features over the time.

Warning: If you decide to switch from parent theme to child theme, you will have to reconfigure your customizer settings. To speed up the process you can export your parent theme settings using this plugin: Customizer Export/Import

To install child theme:

Navigate to Themes > Add New section on your blog dashboard and add:
THEMENAME–” file. Once added, please activate it. Do not remove parent theme.
